See Martin L. Mercer's storyboards for three Iron Man 3 scenes: Iron Patriot discovering the Afghan sweatshop, Savin escaping by truck, and Rhodey in the situation room.
He is a professional storyboard artist who's worked on Hollywood films like The X-Files (1993), Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2005) and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009). He was brought in to do some last minute re-shoot work in L.A.

Mercer says his biggest challenge was having a newborn son, and working on Almanac (2014) at the same time. All while driving down 405 to Marvel studios for meetings, and getting the work done quickly. He said he wanted to do his best within the time since "a good friend had passed on the work to me."
His favorite time on the project was meeting director Shane Black and seeing the Marvel headquarters.

When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle.
