In-Camera Effects

"Theatricality and deception are powerful weapons," says Christian Bale's pre-Bat Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins, encapsulating Christopher Nolan's ethos in one handy sentence. With the help of British SFX virtuoso Chris Corbould, the director has, as far as possible, made his films the old-fashioned way - with models, props and the kind of physical effects he'd started to master from the moment he picked up his dad's Super 8 camera. We doubt he flipped too many lorries aged eight or shoved his brother into a rotating corridor, but it's easy to see how impressive the sci-fis of Ridley Scott and Stanley Kubrick must have looked to the young Nolan. Corbould - the man behind Pierce Brosnan's T-54 chase through Moscow in GoldenEye - had the experience (11 Bond films and counting) and skill to bring Tumblers, Batpods and exploding towers into being.
