Bong Joon Ho’s Parasite is one of the most critically acclaimed films that released in the year 2019. The film is now being published as a book which will feature storyboards created by the writer and director Bong Joon Ho along with inputs from Han Jin-Won.

The director went through extensive storyboarding before beginning the shoot of the film as he was of the firm belief that storyboard gives a blueprint to the film which makes the shooting and execution process easier. According to a report by news agency PTI, the director spoke about the book and the film.

This book no way purports that storyboarding is an essential shortcut to making good films. I actually storyboard to quell my own anxiety. I only feel safe when I have all the shots of the day storyboarded in my palm. Whenever I go to set without storyboards, I feel like I’m standing in the middle of Grand Central Terminal wearing only my underwear.

They can be shot exactly as drawn and serve as valuable blueprints for the crew members. The finished film never deviates far from the storyboards, and this allows the crew to trust the process. Crew members who have worked with me in the past are especially aware of this.
