Bollywood melodramas can be more entertaining in 3D: Fink


MUMBAI: Bollywood style melodramas can look best in 3D, said Hollywood VFX Supervisor Michael Fink, while speaking at Ficci-Frames 2011.

“While testing movies to be converted into 3D, I always ask for a scene that has dialogues in it. An action scene with fast moving images can’t offer us the detailing and depth of a dialogue scene.”

3D is an interesting business and many film-makers in Hollywood want to make movies in this format.

“The key challenge is that 3D is very subjective. Viewers can disagree on which content looks better on 3D,” Fink noted.

The session was moderated by Tata Elxsi COO Nagarajan S and other panelists were Intel Corporation DevRel visual computing director Steve Santamaria, Quantel sales director Martin Mulligan and Side Effects Software Canadian operations chief technology officer and VP Paul Salvini.

The session discussed about the value of 3D content in movies, television, games and entertainment.

Salvini gave his credits to Avatar for serving as a catalyst in boosting the demand for 3D across the world (at $2.7 billion it was the highest grossing Hollywood film ever). “A significant advantage of 3D content is that in most cases the pirated version can never be at par with the original print,” he remarked.

Mulligan highlighted the growing interests in 3D among the sports providers. “In soccer, 24 cameras were used to capture the shots. But when 3D cameras are used, only six are needed to make the experience real fantastic," he said.

Fink mentioned that the distance between the left eye and the right eye cameras determine the depth of 3D. “A film-maker might want to pull the audience into a scene or might throw a rocket at them so that they duck," he said.
