8 talks about the making of movie magic
Until I get my act together and get something original posted for 2013, here are some TED talks about moviemaking to tide you over. For those not familiar with TED, it’s a non-profit group that promotes “Ideas Worth Spreading” from innovative thinkers and visionaries in the fields of Technology, Education, and Design. Speakers are allowed just 20 minutes to get their ideas across. I haven’t taken a look at all of these talks about moviemaking yet, but so far J.J. Abrams’ talk about the “mystery box” is my favourite. Enjoy!
And don’t worry, there will be fresh Popcorn soon…

A member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and former senior vice president of marketing and communications at Sony Pictures, Levy has always been fascinated by the sleights of hand that filmmakers use to create illusions. And he knows he is far from alone. In the 117 years since the Lumière Brothers terrified audiences with their Train Pulling Into a Station (1896), Levy explores how visual effects have evolved.
