Inception was an amazing film and the storyboards are mind-blowing. For example, in one scene Arthur (Joseph Gordon-Levitt) has a fight in the dream world. As it goes on gravity goes away leaving Arthur to fight up walls and ceilings. It's hard to imagine a scene from such simple lines as:
INT. HOTEL CORRIDOR - NIGHT
As Arthur hurries down the corridor, the corridor starts to
TILT, and Arthur is forced to run UP ONTO THE WALL- he rounds
a corner- STRAIGHT INTO another Security Man- Arthur HEAD
BUTTS him and they STRUGGLE- as they struggle, the corridor
SPINS around, THROWING THEM UP ONTO THE WALLS, THE CEILING as
wall becomes floor they DROP through a door into-
INT. HOTEL ROOM - CONTINUOUS
The fight continues all over the spinning room- and we-
INT. HOTEL ROOM - NIGHT
Arthur and the Security Man DROP to the floor, Arthur on top. Arthur gets up- heads to the stairwell.
Gabriel Hardman did it though. DGA had an article on it in "Altered States" and a sample.
The dreamscape of Christopher Nolan's Inception was filled with odd angles and spinning rooms such as this one. Storyboards by Gabriel Hardman helped the director realize his vision for 500 visual effects shots.
