Tokyo Throwdown Boards - SoM exercise

(FICTIONAL) Brief: Fox is launching a new dance show called Urban Freestyle: Tokyo Throwdown and wanted 5-6 Storyboards for the show. They wanted to see how I would highlight the names of the dance teams, what the end Title card will look like and how I will incorporate the Fox logo. They wanted it to feel sexy and be inspired by the show's unique location in Tokyo.

My Solution: This was a super tough exercise. I struggled to process how I could represent Tokyo visually. I overcame this by with loads of Tokyo based reference from Pinterest. Besides the cool street advertising (which I used as inspiration) I also noticed a recurring triangle theme in some Tokyo street patterns on the ground which I liked.

This triangle visual metaphor helps represents the fact that there are 3 dancers. I also used elements of Japanese street advertising, which works well for this piece but I could have found some more unique pieces as inspiration
