Check out Iron Man storyboard animatics by Jim Rothwell from storyboards by Richard K. Buoen, Michael Anthony Jackson, David Lowery and Eric Ramsey!
Iron Man (2008) is an epic film and single-handedly created the Marvel Cinematic Universe that led to the Avengers. Part of the film's success are the incredible action scenes that came to life thanks to hundreds of talented film artists. A few storyboards from the film were turned into "Animatics" by James "Jim" Rothwell and he recently shared them on his blog. I've already shared his incredible animatics for the canceled live-action Stretch Armstrong movie, so I thought I'd share his work on Iron Man.
The storyboards, animated by James Rothwell, are by Richard K. Buoen, Michael Anthony Jackson, David Lowery and Eric Ramsey.
Jim Rothwell is an entertainment-industry veteran for 14 years as a professional animatics artist. Currently based out of Los Angeles, California, United States, he's worked on big budget movies like Iron Man (2008), Thor (2011) and Spider-Man 2 (2004).
Check out the storyboards after the jump (click to watch the videos).
You'll notice that there are subtle changes between the animatics and the final film. These pre-viz videos are usually done to help visualize scenes before filming, so they're probably closer to the original script.
