Film > Ghostbusters > Ghostbusters Storyboards

Some storyboards are for scenes that were in the film and some are for scenes that were deleted from the film. This first set of storyboards are too large to display on a page, so I'm linking to them instead. They will open in a new window/tab.

The deleted 3-D movie theater scene as depicted in storyboard form. The Three Stooges are drawn to resemble their appearance in Beer Barrel Polecats (1946), specficially the production photo displayed beneath the lobby card shown below. The short film can be viewed online in black and white and colorized. Although this idea would be somewhat realized in Ghostbusters II, it would be fully realized in Scooby-Doo! The Mystery Begins (2009) (TVM).

Click on the panel below to see the full 10-panel strip (opens in a new window/tab). Click on the Beer Barrel Polecats lobby card for an enlargement. Storyboards courtesy of The Movies That Made Us. Thanks to Alex Newborn for pointing out which Three Stooges short was being depicted .




Though the ghost design and its essential action were already locked in, these early sketches show Venkman and Stantz discovering the ghost together - a story point that was altered sometime between the August draft and the final shooting script. Also, since costume and hardware concepts were not fully realized yet, the storyboards reflect rather nondescript, generic attire.

A special effects storyboard for the scene where Louis attacks some muggers. This scene was eventually deleted from the film. Notice that Louis was drawn to look like John Candy, the actor who was originally supposed to play the role.
