Editor’s Note: Previs is a collaboration between previs artists, directors, producers, and other department heads. Directors have a role in guiding and producing the previs, and some furnish the storyboarding materials on which previs is based.
We talked to Hollywood's busiest visualization studio, The Third Floor, to find out why visualization is the secret MVP of Marvel movies.
The Third Floor is one of the world's top visualization studios and has worked on 19 of the 23 installments in Marvel's "Infinity Saga." From previs and stuntvis to techvis and postvis, The Third Floor's work on Marvel movies runs through the entire production process. The first previsualizations of a Marvel film can begin well in advance of its release date, often before the screenplay is fully finished. Find out how Marvel visualizes its movies years before filmmaking and how this practice has helped the MCU rise its position of box-office dominance today.
The Third Floor has done visualization work for 2010's "Iron Man 2"; 2011's "Thor" and "Captain America: The First Avenger"; 2012's "The Avengers"; 2013's "Iron Man 3" and "Thor: The Dark World"; 2014's "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" and "Guardians of the Galaxy"; 2015's "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man"; 2016's "Captain America: Civil War" and "Doctor Strange"; 2017's "Spider-Man: Homecoming," "Thor: Ragnarok," and "Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2"; 2018's "Avengers: Infinity War," "Deadpool 2," "Ant-Man and the Wasp," and "Venom"; and 2019's "Captain Marvel," "Avengers: Endgame," and "Spider-Man: Far from Home."

I used feel intimidated thinking how they pull off such complex MCU movies. It's a relief to know that the director does not have to do it all alone.

Marvel basically cheats on making simple entertaining spectacle driven action movies, visual roller coasters. while DC tried to make intelligent, visually unique & impressive, thought provoking films until WB booted Zack Snyder & hired that hack Joss.

So the issue for directors is that they can't be a little dictator that decides on the entire movie, but they have to work in a team. Got it

so basically the directors are just copying what is already done by the previz team? previz team are the real directors.....no wonder some directors don't like working with marvel studio because essentially you have limited control over the creativity of certain scenes..

Pretty impressive planning....and not limited to film. The show coordinator for the 19-time world champ Blue Devils Drum & Bugle Corps starts planning out shows 3-4 years before they're planned to hit the field, which gives him and other staffers time to try out show elements with various band programs they work with. This allows them to not only know what should work in the actual show, but to plan out changes to the program as the season progresses. They knew what they were going to do in the 2019 program as far back as 2015.

So the studio designs the movie then hires a Guinea pig as a director to shoot the shots exactly as they’ve been prefabricated.
RidingwithSam Dag siden
yup, that is not appealing for top directors... basically, they have limited creativity over the film. that might explain why marvel studios movies are so similar to each other despite having different directors in them.

And this, children, is why many directors don't want to work with Marvel. They're told, "don't worry about the action, we got that covered." And many in the industry are like "then what do you need me for?"

havent seen the full video but this is what ik so far as far as ive heard, the idea of infinity war and endgame was originally pitched in the making of Age of Ultron. so they made age of ultron with civil war, infinity war, and endgame in mind if you look at the avengers after Age of Ultron happened, you can see how much sokovia affected them. its not really important but i just think its cool

I do video game motion-capture and normal acting here in Japan. They stick VERY CLOSE to previz or storyboards in both. And often shoot in sequence. As an actor, that’s a bit stifling. It limits our ability to make choices - often one of our greatest contributions to a production. When there are so many effects and money involved, I get it. I’m fortunate to work with Hideo Kojima on Death Stranding, as he allowed us to still make choices in rehearsal and even during shooting.

I guess the role of directors changes then / there are two schools of directing-approaches. There's the 'director who has their own vision in their head' - and who then goes on to do things; to direct actors and the crew so that their vision is realised. I imagine there is quite a bit of trial and error / experience involved with that approach. And then there is extensive PreVis where the vision is developed by a team (of which the director may or may not be a part - though I think they should be) and the main task of the director is similar to that of a conductor in an orchestra. The instruments and musicians are there, the sheet music is all set and done, the stage is set - and now it's all about coordinating everyone to create a perfprmance that's more than the sum of its parts.

And here you can see the difference between the MCU where everything is mapped out and tested years prior to shooting and the DC Universe, where they shoot and reshoot and reshoot because they don't know what they want the movie to be.
