FXGuide.com recently did a really nice feature on some of the visual effects in this summer’s most talked about film, Inception. They recorded an in-depth podcast with the vfx supervisor on Inception, Paul Franklin of the acclaimed visual effects house Double Negative. They also have a fascinating write up on the miniature effects featured in the film done by Ian Hunter and his team at New Deal Studios. Both Franklin and Hunter talk about the attention of detail in going into making this film’s visual effects as realistic as possible. Whether it be filming 1/6 scale miniatures at 72 frames per second, or coordinating with the costume department during the wire-work to help conceal gravity direction, both of the teams at New Deal Studios and Double Negative had their work cut out for them when it came to selling the visual effects in Inception.
It looks like this Inception news train isn’t stopping anytime soon. This time, we’ve got a new six-minute behind the scenes video on the set of Inception, and four new interviews with Christopher Nolan, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
Yea. Five new videos. Crazy.
