Meet the Filmmaker: Paul Franklin (Visual Effects Supervisor for Inception)
Join Paul Franklin as he discusses the mind-blowing effects behind the box office smash Inception at the Apple Store, Regent Street in London.
Insightful and Entertaining
I was enough to go along to this very talk at the Apple Store on Regent Street, London (You can see my little, ginger head in the front row!)
Franklin gives a very in-depth look at some of the more obvious special effects shots in 'Inception' as well as a few little things that you may or may not know where digitally enhanced. The most amazing thing about the talk was that very few visual effects shots were actually used in comparison to other major blockbusters including Nolan's past films; most of the jaw-dropping scenes in the film were done 'In-Camera' to ensure the dream world was more tangible by grounding it in reality.
If you enjoyed the film, you'll find this talk a great companion piece without it taking any of the magic away from the visuals on screen.
