From Star Wars and Avatar to Lord of the Rings and Inception, the ability of a filmmaker to create a world we want to frequently revisit is something we all admire, yet rarely discuss. World-building in all forms of entertainment can leave you mesmerised by a setting’s beauty or enamoured by a fictional society’s very existence.
In this new Roundtable episode, Shane, Ben, Terry and Jason discuss the techniques filmmakers use that allow us to fall in love with their worlds as well as some of the shining cinematic examples of films that accomplish that in a spectacular way.
