Here's the story boarding for the "Kubrick  Trailer" for Project: Cyclone. As you can see, a-lot changed form the final cut, most notably, splitting the sequence into multiple cuts, and adding the trailing sections, shot on our steady-cam.  As-well, we changed the entire ending, instead, having him open the suitcase, and cutting to title, rather than  the Pipe -Smoking section. 

Besides being HEAVILY complicated to get  the bluish tinted steam on camera, in all honestly, though we treasure creative integrity more than anyone else, we just didn't think it'd be as tasteful to show our character as a possible drug user, even if fictional.

In the end, it all turned out well.
