Inside Dougal Wilson’s sketchbooks

Drawing from Dougal Wilson’s storyboard for Bat For Lashes’ What’s A Girl To Do? video
As part of our Work in Progress special issue of Creative Review, which is out now, advertising and music video director Dougal Wilson revealed the complex storyboards that he creates for his films.
The issue includes preparatory drawings for Wilson’s video for Jarvis Cocker’s Don’t Let Him Waste Your Time and his Wave ad for Big Yellow Storage, and here we reveal his storyboard for the promo for What’s A Girl To Do? by Bat For Lashes. As the stills from the video (included below alongside Wilson’s storyboards) show, his drawings are a remarkably accurate guide to the finished shots.
