Have you ever wondered how ideas from the page end up as the amazing sets they use in the movies? Someone's got to create them, translating them from the screenwriter's ideas. Skyfall's production designer shows you just how.
I've never really thought about it before, but those glorious sets must take some doing. You've first got to imagine them out of mere words, then create the individual pieces to put them together like a massive jigsaw in a studio -- it must take forever. Anything out of place will easily be picked up by the camera so it all has to be picture perfect.
The worst thing about creating a set must be knowing that at the end of it all, someone's going to come in and rip it to shreds to make room for something new. That must be so damn galling. [007.com]
