“Film is the Gold Standard of image making”, Paul Franklin (2015 Oscar and Bafta winner for Best Special Visual Effects)

Recently decorated for his achievements in Visual Effects for Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Paul Franklin talks to the BBC about the differences in the mediums of film and digital image making.
