Fans have a long time to wait for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2. However, director James Gunn has decided to make the time pass easier by teasing thumbnail sketches via his Facebook and Twitter. He has even made it into a bit of a guessing game since he admits the drawings are messy and difficult to figure out.
“Recently I mentioned how I draw every single shot in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2 before we ever shoot a frame,” Gunn wrote in a post. “I’ll spread whole scenes over my office floor or all around the walls, sometimes hundreds of shots, and it will give me an idea of how the scene flows, what’s smooth, what’s jumbled, and even what works comedically…. Many of you asked to see these drawings so I thought I’d start posting thumbnails of whatever it was we shot that day on #GotGVol2. I’m not going to explain what the shot is – as I said, they’re messy. But maybe you can match the thumbnail to the shot when the movie is released.”
Essentially, James Gunn has promised to post a new sketch on social media every Wednesday, using the hashtag #WhatWeShotWednesday. Today is only the first post, but fans are already excited about the idea. Many of them thanked Gunn for sharing the creative process he goes through, and several people asked if there was a way to get the sketches for themselves. However, there is no word on that front yet.
