From Metropolis to the latest blockbuster, the film industry continues to amaze us with bigger and better special effects, set design, direction and storylines. The industry is packed full of creative minds that keep on finding new ways to challenge our perceptions of reality. Intellectual property (IP) supports their innovation, enabling them to generate an income and continue to push the boundaries. But what happens if we don't value IP? Creating Movie Magic is an educational resource using the film industry as a way to explore ingenious design and technology skills, and the career opportunities in one of the biggest employment sectors in the UK.
