When magicians reveal their tricks, usually the awe and wonder wrapped up in something seemingly mysterious dissolves magic into something that is nothing more than a well-rehearsed allusion. That, however, is not the case for the minds behind the special effects in the film Doctor Strange.
The YouTubers ILMVisualFX posted a new episode to their Behind the Magic series to reveal how the time warp and mirror dimension scenes in Doctor Strange were created. And while no one asked us to sum up the episodes in two words or less, let us simply say this: Mind blowing.
The effects are so tedious that you will be left with more amazement than you had before watching the clip. You’ll see. You’ll all see.
