Christopher Nolan Is Wired
Filmmaker Christopher Nolan edits the December 2014 issue of Wired (out now). A trailer for the issue appears on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ao4Uc3JkfgY, but I was unable to embed the video here. The collaboration is in celebration of the release of Nolan's last film Interstellar. There are a number of pieces about space/time travel in general (including a very long piece on the making of The Right Stuff film from 1983), but the most interesting to me were the ones that offered insight into the filmmaking process through the words and experiences of Nolan and two of the co-creators--astrophysicist Kip Thorne and production designer Nathan Crowley--involved in bringing his film to life. As an added bonus, the issue also includes a comic book style story set within the world of the film.
