First Stop – The Third Floor
The Third Floor is a progressive previsualization, postvisualization, and virtual reality company that has worked on over 70% of the animated blockbuster films that we see in Hollywood. Think Avengers: End Game, Star Wars Hans Solo and Spiderman to name a few. The work that they do on these films gives you a better visualization of what we see like flawless 3D animation and virtual reality. Founder Christopher Edwards walked us through various scenes that The Third Floor team worked on for Spiderman Far From Home.
Second Stop – Ironhead Studios
As soon as you walk into Ironhead Studios you are immediately awed by the incredible display of mask and costumes. Most of them were very familiar ranging from Daftpunk’s helmet to the incomparable Black Panther and of course the amazing Spiderman! No matter your age, you were sure to be impressed with their body of work.
Jose Fernandez, founder of Ironhead Studios, has had a love for Spiderman since he was a kid that dreamed in the comic book world. He shared with us that his older brother introduced him to Spiderman for the very first time and he never lost touch with his infatuation for him. In grade school, he lived for Halloween because he had a reason to show off his passion for special effects makeup and costume.
Ironhead Studios created the Spiderman far from home costume all in house. They were given a concept sketch and took it and ran with it. Within their studios, they house a complete team from sketch artists, to animation artists, to seamstress to sculptures and painters and more. They are the real deal. Jose admitted to having to troubleshoot the costume so that the actors wouldn’t overheat. He figured out a way to install tiny fans, controlled by a magnet, to blow inside the helmet of the Spiderman costume. In his eyes, the Spiderman Far From Home costume is the epitome of Spiderman costumes. I agree!
Final Destination: The Magic Castle w/ Jason Latimer
We were treated to a private show at the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood by the awesome Jason Latimer. Jason is a world champion magician, curator of the iconic Fleet Science Center, and co-host of the Science Channel series SciJinks. Latimer unites magic and science to inspire curiosity and demonstrate how the right question changes everything.
From bending light to shaping water, his illusions are featured globally on Television Specials, Series, Live Shows, STEM Labs, & science festivals. Latimer’s works has sparked millions of minds to embrace their ability to wonder.
Thank you Sony Animation Studios for this unforgettable day! All opinions expressed are my own and honest!
