panel discussion on phantasmagoria and special effects
On the threshold between superstition and science, the fantastic allure of the illusion has long been a driving force behind popular entertainment. From pre-cinematic illusions to the hyper-reality of contemporary special effects.
Join our panel including researcher Saige Walton, special effects maven Sean Cubitt (author of The Screen Effect), Dr Angela Ndalianis (author of Neo-Baroque Aesthetics and Contemporary Entertainment Media) and Professor Ian Gibbins as they discuss the power of moving image deceptions.
