Ben Wheatley’s dystopian film High-Rise is about a skyscraper divided into social classes. But the building at the heart of the film never existed. It was created with clever practical and visual effects from Milk VFX.
“The building’s exterior wasn’t real,” Wheatley explains to Inverse. “Everything else was practical. On the sets, some of it was built, some of it wasn’t. But most of it was. We tried to achieve a lot of it practically if we could, just because it’s easier.”
