Book Review: The Making of Judge Dredd

The Story of The Fifth ElementIndustrial Light & Magic: Into the Digital RealmThe Making of Judge Dredd - 01

Although the film was a big flop, the creative direction and visual effects remain one of the best futuristic visions ever translated onto the screen, Canon's Megacity One is so layered and believable you're instantly transported into Dredd's world.

Transitions from green screen sets to digital mattes are prefectly seamless in these early days of match-moves. So creatively, this remains one of my favourite film art books, chock full of development sketches and production art.

Detailed prop photos show how craftsmen produce their works of art and its one of the first art books to feature a whole section of actual storyboards. Not to mention Gianni Versace's costume designs for all judges.
