The 300 film marked an important point in how to show the films we know. It is like seeing a painting in motion. This film has incredible visual effects and a very artistic color correction, inspired by the comics, which is in turn, where the film is inspired.

In the book, mainly focused on the production of the effects, we can find a lot of material about the development of props, greenscreen, makeup, scenarios, 3d … it is a small making of what we have seen in the film. He is a good companion if we want to learn more about how this whole project has been built.

Inside we will find quite a variety; concept art, character design, storyboard, set design … but relatively scarce. It is not a very thick book, so the material we are going to see is much smaller compared to any video game art book. Perhaps it is a good idea, in case we want to know more about the film, look for information about the making of that may be on YouTube or in the content of the Blu ray.
