How Scorsese sketched the bloody boxing scenes in ‘Raging Bull’ | New York Post

'Before filming the bloody boxing sequences in “Raging Bull,” director Martin Scorsese sketched them in pencil, with ragged lines conveying the fierce energy he sought from his star Robert de Niro. '

'It’s a scene almost too graphite to look at. '

'To this day, the director still draws his own storyboards. '

'While other directors hire professionals to make elaborate storyboards — which illustrate, shot by shot, what the finished film will look like — those created by Scorsese are stripped-down and reflective of the raw passion that goes into his movies. '

'Interviewed by co-curator Kristina Jaspers and journalist Peter Manz, Scorsese said that he repairs to Manhattan hotel rooms with his jet-black, Ebony-brand pencils and stiff boards for a process that requires solitude with no interruptions.“Drawing the storyboards is my way of visualizing the entire film before I shoot it,” the director said. “In a sense, drawing the film as I wish to see it.”'

Now that's a cool fence | Stuff.co.nz

'When Shirley Gregg asked her son to repair the rickety old fence in the front yard, she never expected to see it replaced by a line of giant pencils. '

'Shirley said Seddon had struggled through months of strong earthquakes and aftershocks, and the fence seemed to inject some vibrancy to the town. '

'Deane Gregg says he built the fence for his parents based on an idea his wife Lisa had seen on the internet. '

'The posts which make up the fence were painted twice in seven different colours. '

'But there it is, in all its glory, a fence made of 42 posts shaped and painted to look like huge coloured pencils, in the heart of Seddon. '
