Two-time Oscar nominee John Mathieson BSC (Gladiator, The Phantom of the Opera, Robin Hood, 47 Ronin) recently completed work on The Man from U.N.C.L.E., an update of the stylish 1960s television series of the same name.

In some ways, the colors and textures of the period production design lent themselves to digital, he says.

If you grew up in the ‘80s it’s likely that at one time or another you found yourself inside a video arcade playing video games for hours on end at just 25 cents a pop. It was during this time period that a farm boy named Tim McVey from Ottumwa, Iowa—the Dodge City of video games— became the champion of Nibbler, the first arcade game with a scoring threshold of one billion points. It took McVey more than forty hours—and only cost him one quarter—to hit this milestone.
