STORYBOARD ART (DEADLIEST OF THE SPECIES)
By Bruce Fedow:
Pictured here is a collection of storyboards from the third season
Lost in Space episode "Deadliest of the Species." Storyboards are
created for movies and television by the production staff to
visualize key scenes yet to be filmed. They also aid in creating
new costumes, props and set decorations.
Notice the difference in the design of capsule Alpha 784. The idea
of creating a new large prop as pictured was scrapped, probably for
budgetary reasons, in favor of using existing missile props from
"Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea."
Very few of these storyboards have survived in the forty years since
these episodes were filmed, making these a rare collector's item and
a fascinating glimpse into the world behind the scenes on Lost in Space.
