Due later this year, the next installment of James Bond’s adventures, Skyfall, is an exciting prospect for many. Here we go behind the scenes on the Sam Mendes production and are given an insight into the design process (a huge undertaking as always with Bond) via Oscar winning art director David Gassner. From initial sketches to vast, complex sets, 007 has always relied on its sharp aesthetic as much as its story lines to keep audiences coming back for more. Press play to find out how it all comes together. (Phaidon)
