BBC effects - better than you thought!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BBC VFX: The Story of the BBC Visual Effects Department (Hardcover)
It is sad but the BBC got such a bad rep for effects because of shoestring budgets and poor quality. This book redresses the balance and shows the astonishing miniatures and props made for BBC programs over the years. Work includes the well known stuff like DR Who but also showcased is the amazing work for drama, kids tv and comedies.
There are great photos of the sets and models and interesting facts. Sometimes during editing a programme the effects are ruined, as with the infamous Casualty plane crash!
This book shows the hard work, enthusiasm and detail that went into every project.
It is a good book, a little brief on detail in some areas but very enjoyable.
