So hopefully everyone has seen the glorious triumph that is Mad Max : Fury Road.....and how could you not have with trailers like this:
If you are anything like us, after you have seen something that you like you go and find out how it was done. As we spend far (honestly) far too much time on the internet doing exactly that we thought we would start a new 'thing' called a 'Creative Link Repository'.
In essence this will be a series of links to other sites which have helped us understand how 'stuff got done!'.
This will be both for our (and we hope your) benefit, and as new items come up they will get added, so if you have a link which we have missed, we would love you to contact us in the comments and let us know!.
So in no particular order lets get Mad Maxing!
As always our friends at FXGuide have an excellent series of articles and interviews to get stuck into:
A graphic tale: the visual effects of Mad Max: Fury Road by Ian Failes is an excellent article detailing the who, what and how of the production.
This is backed up an excellent, FX guide podcast by Mike Seymour with guests visual effects supervisor Andrew Jackson and colorist Eric Whipp who both have really interesting takes on the Film.
There is also a VFX SHOW dedicated to MMFR, which we haven't had a chance to listen to yet, which will be more of about opinions on the film by the FXguide team and guests with production suggest, these are usually a good listen.
Here is a great interview with Colin Gibson the films production designer on how the cars of the film came to be.
