I dont know how many people will understand what i mean “Kalyana Samaiyal Sadham”. But those who are fond of old tamil/telugu movies must have seen/loved the famous song of Mayabazar “Kalayana samayal Sadham” in which you could see an enchanting performance of SP.Rangarao.
Apart from great music,great performance there is one other thing that makes me put my remote aside for some time when i see it on tv. It involves one of the oldest visual effect techniques that is used in films. Yes the technique where the ladoos and sweets plates appear on the floor is called STOP MOTION . It was one of the finest Stop motion graphic that was done in indian movies to my knowledge.
I discussed about making a stop motion short with my team. soon we will do something similar to kalyanan samaiyal sadham. I will write about how to do a STOP MOTION when i am taking it. For now enjoy the song and you will feel like eating after seeing the video:)
When i started to make short films, all the ideas was based on certain visual effects or the list of tutorial that i had access to. i put together all visual effects and wrote a story around it. Well that was good for starters, but as i started learning visual effects from hollywoodcameraworks, i realized that creativity must be put first and visual effects must comprehend the creativity.Success and failure of a film does not depend on the visual effects but how the story is being made visually effective with the help of technology.
“Always put creativity ahead of Visual Effects”
