    Cinema goers are used to being spoilt by lots of special effects and enormous film budgets. To provide top quality production, each member of the crew must be really important. Sometimes we don’t even pay attention to details that really matter for the final product. All we see is a sequence of scenes, particular visualisations and special effects. The truth is they all require a lot of effort and time, sometimes even months of work.

    It’s just incredible. So much time for a film lasting 90 minutes. If you would like to see how some of the biggest movie productions were made, you must see the gallery below.

To film it, there was an F/X technician under the table with an acetylene torch cutting the table from underneath
