La Triste Historia Storyboard

The Day of the Dead festival is a very colourful celebration of death.  Simon wanted to embrace this theme by using the elements of Death, which begin to percolate the story more and more as the narrative progresses, as a device that would bring vivid colour to the story.  

Graham's storyboard acted as a colour mood board as well - allowing Simon to see how the balance of colour would shift from the more monotone and arid to the rich glowing burgundies and blues of the conclusive fourth act.
