A new Science Channel miniseries is coming out soon called, "Through The Wormhole, with Morgan Freeman". Similar to the 1980 miniseries 'Cosmos', hosted by the inspirational astronomer Carl Sagan, each episode investigates the scientific mysteries of the Universe.

 

It is presented as a personal journey of Morgan Freeman's, which includes reenacted tales from his childhood. In the process of ironing out the style of the show as it was being assembled, the production company had me come in and draw storyboards for the first two reenactments so the editors and directors could experiment with the boards as footage before they went out to shoot.

 

The first episode I did was on 'Dark Matter', using a childhood tale of fear of the dark. Stylistically it was all about drama and shadows, and really allowed me to indulge in my love of cross hatching.

 

 




 

 

The second episode was about 'Time', illustrating a personal investigation on what makes things tick. The big picture here is about tiny things and being able to observe them -- in this case with a magnifying glass. Please excuse the horrible drawing of adult Morgan, depicted in a transition to young Morgan.
