Step into a new world of artificial backgrounds and boundless imagination
Bruno Savill De Jong’s first curated season focusing on the craft of background design will kick off on 19 November at the Cinema Museum. Screenings info here.
VFX work and background design is meant to be invisible and unnoticed. But some films take a step beyond Naturalism, embracing a unique art direction of artifice. In an age where digital effects and 360 immersive green-screens can create ’anything’, the technical craft and tangible ’reality’ to these films demonstrate a different path of film’s boundless imagination - even if here, you can touch the sky.
