PRODUCTION COMPANY: Marvel Studios
Director: Shane Black
In Marvel’s “Iron Man 3,” from Director Shane Black, brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man goes on a harrowing quest to find the enemy who has destroyed his personal world. As his journey unfolds, audiences are introduced to dozens of new suits – all stemming from Digital Domain’s creative development of 14 ‘foundation’ designs, including the new Mark 42 which debuts in the movie. Under the direction of VFX Supervisor Erik Nash, Digital Domain also created the key ‘barrel of monkeys’ sky rescue sequence, a photo-real computer-generated version of Air Force One, the look of the human-body-generated explosion at the Chinese Theater, and seriously complex environments.
