These storyboards for a fire fighting recruitment video show the double life of a volunteer near Edmonton Alberta, who puts on his work boots and firefighter boots; his work coat and his bunker jacket.
It was a welcome challenge as a storyboard artist to show the dual lives of a volunteer firefighter, from driving to work to driving to an emergency rescue scene.
Our firefighter lifts lumber at his construction job, then we cut to him pulling a fire hose in a similar position. As the storyboard artist I find it useful to draw multiple figures in a scene like an animation sequence, with the prominent figure outlined darker.
Just as nail is about to be hammered by our volunteer firefighter at his construction job, we jump to the same firefighter kicking a door in before his team of firefighters enters a burning industrial building.
Storyboards show firefighters under air in full bunker gear rushing upstairs to a door and opening it, when smoke billows out.
This sequence was unique to draw as a storyboard artist, where our firefighters enter a room filled with smoke, rescue a downed civilian worker, and evacuate to safety.
Having evacuated the rescued civilian to paramedics, these storyboards show our volunteer Alberta firefighters taking a well deserved break after a job well done.
