Iron and Fire

What does a super do in his spare time? He has to focus. He has to do what needs to be done. And so Iron man skillfully prepares his dress while his city in the background is devasted by a (paper) firestorm. What can you do? If YOUR super-power would be ironing, what would you YOU do?

Iron in Berlin

Anastasia is in Berlin for a week staying at my place and we visit some places for insights about the best way of making her stop motion the least painful. There is also a good deal of talking about the story of Iron Man and some good ideas come to the story.

Iron man meets the football monster

Anastasia Tasic has a passion for superheroes. She even hosts one in her room in a tiny self made puppet set. For her episode in the film this super will become Iron Man, equipped with the super power to:  iron. Of course Iron Man can also fly and is very much into watching football. Probably that’s why he misses to tackle the problem with the city being attacked by a monster in a prober way.

The monster on the other side is not the classical Godzilla-style creature with big claws and bad manners. Tatiana Moshkova’s monster is made of people who couldn’t watch the match properly because of a power blackout. Who said that football makes people aggressive? No football is even worse.

The stories of Anastasia and Tatiana will interact over the course of the film and finally give us the answer to the question: Will Iron Man finally save the city from the destruction caused by the monster? And will electricity be back before the end of the match?

There is Anastasia Tasic, Krunoslav Jovic, Nenad Krstic, Uroš Krčadinac, Vid Rajn from Serbia, Ivan Ramadan from Bosnia, Tatiana Moshkova from Russia, Katre Haav from Estonia, Scotsman Steward Comrie as well as Michael Schwertel, Martin Kleinmichel and Till Laßmann from Germany.
