Bollywood isn't quite known for making films which are true-blue VFX spectacles. Yes, in practically every second film there are certain scenes, the impact of which is enhanced using VFX. However 'designed for VFX' films are rare. Last few months have seen blockbusters like KRRISH 3 and DHOOM 3 boasting of some heavy-duty VFX. Now in 2014, Bollywood would see another major biggie with VFX as the driving force in the form of CREATURE.
VIKRAM BHATT AND BIPASHA BASU
The Vikram Bhatt directed affair is designed as an out and out VFX flick. In fact at the time of the film's announcement itself, it was said pretty loud and clear that the genre as well as VFX in the film would be on the lines of JURASSIC PARK and ANACONDA. Currently, Vikram is actually working on accomplishing that, now that the principle shooting is over and it is time for editing studios to take over.
There is an interesting piece of trivia though, when it comes to managing his actors interact with all the imaginary objects, stage and setting. While he was pretty well aware of what lied of him shot after shot, Vikram refrained from overwhelming his actors by detailing the complexity of the situation.
'What's the need for that,' wonders Vikram, 'When it comes to technology, I have my creative cast and technology centered talent. When it comes to actors though, I am a bridge between them and my crew. I don't tell my actors that hey, this is 3D or this is where VFX would come, so you should do this or that. I never explained even Bipasha about any special camera that I was using or called her after every shot on the monitor to show her what has been shot. The whole idea is for everyone to be spontaneous and it is my job as a director to not confuse people.'
We would like to see the eventual outcome once CREATURE releases all over on 30th May.
