MI6 Confidential - Casino Royale: The Peter Lamont Portfolio

MI6 Casino Royale: The Peter Lamont Portfolio
MI6 Confidential have revealed the contents of their 100-page special for 2019. Buoyed by the success and response of his first contribution, production designer Peter Lamont once again shared amazing stories and illustrations from another of his favourite films – Casino Royale (2006).

Peter Lamont has produced an exhaustive visual history of his work on Daniel Craig's debut. On this picture, Peter oversaw units on multiple continents and recounts his memories location- and studio-scouting, recalling visits to construction sites and landfills in South Africa, Germany, and Wales before settling on the Bahamas and the Czech Republic.

This has produced a remarkable and rare preface, documenting the range of places that were considered for the film as the script evolved in the pre-production stages.

From there, Peter walks us through the film as it plays out, detailing his and his colleagues' contributions to the practical and aesthetic elements of Daniel Craig's first hand as Bond.

Packed with rarely seen visual materials from Peter's own collection and the EON archives – this is a fitting send-off for one of 007's longest serving crew-members.

In this special issue of MI6 Confidential:

• Exclusive introduction by director Martin Campbell
• Peter's memories of casting Daniel Craig
• Never-seen photography from pre-production, global location scouting, recces, and set constructions
• Over 60 behind the scenes photographs from Lamont's personal collection
• Dozens of illustrations, pre-visualizations, 3D renders, models and more from the design process
• Peter recounts working with Martin Campbell, Michael G. Wilson, Anthony Waye, Martin Asbury, Chris Corbould and more

Order this limited special issue of MI6 Confidential from before it runs out of stock.
