okay as promised… here is a first pass animatic of what i plan to do…
My initial thoughts were to copy the sequence from iron man2 but its been done. Then i went to see Avengers and thought 'blast… there goes my deploy-in-freefall idea! So i sat about and thought up a way to have a suit deploy in a unique situation.
It occured to me that his ironman suits always seem to come to him when he’s in trouble… and that this route might possibly be one Stark himself would want to have work for him if it ever happened. He’s already been in one incident (Humvee from the first film) so it stands to reason he might want to deploy his suit much like a full-body air bag! With that in mind i figured a car crash or possibility of dying in a car would be a cool way to deploy the suit!
Please bear in mind animation, timing & possibly shots may change - its just meant to give me an idea of the amount of work needed in various areas (lots lol!) The animatic just tells me if the story & high level concept of the sequence is going to work. The character is clearly missing from the car at present with just a proxy mesh in place for the close up shots. This will get added for the next version.
The camerawork is meant to convey a sense of urgency - i took some inspiration from a car chase in one of the Bourne films for this. Shots need to be quick and snappy yet convey enough of whats happening. At first my shots were about 30-60frms each in the deploy sequence and i quickly realised it was taking forever. My idea was for my character to realise he’s in trouble and QUICKLY deploy his suit.
hope you like. Thoughts, comments & ideas most welcome
