Hallucinating Cinema: Visual Effects in Psychedelic Films

Research output: Book/ReportBook


Little has been written about more than a handful of psychedelic feature films. Likewise, apart from their place in the science fiction and fantasy genres, VFX have not been studied in depth. This book will focus on the highly distinctive role played by VFX in trip sequences in feature films. It will explore how VFX have been used as a new psychedelic tool to destabilize mainstream narrative conventions and to open philosophical questions rarely addressed by cinema.
