While we were in production with different scenes throughout the film (See Captain America: The Winter Soldier Case Study) Marvel asked us to help them tell the story for a climactic 3 minute sequence within the film. We needed to tell the story of how Hydra’s impact on 20th century crisis infiltrating world governments, creating planetary chaos and controlling the mind of a super assassin (Winter Soldier) to use at will.
Final HYDRA Sequence
Using different imagery that didn’t need manipulation we decided to redact and mark (with red ink) the implication of corruption throughout the world, all at Hydra’s doing.
Getting deeper into the story, we started to guide the viewer by making connections to specific moments or personnel, as if they were helping a detective forensically connect the dots to a global coup.
REVEALING THE SOLDIER
Within the sequence, we needed to place moments where The Winter Soldier "may or may not" have been seen. These glimpses gave more insight as to how Hydra was to gain global control and anyone who did not join willingly would feel the wrath of this master assassin.
CRAFTING THE STORY
Once all our doctored imagery and archival clips were ready, we researched all the film footage Marvel provided to insert shots of past movies like the Captain America: The First Avenger. Once we had all the storyline pieces in place we put together the construction and domination of Hydras worldwide infiltration!
