up and enhancing the chills and thrills for the Hollywood movie
Piranha 3DD. This much awaited movie is scheduled to hit the screens
in India on June 15.
3DD is a sequel to the original which released in 2010. Ever since,
the franchise has built itself a huge fan base. With all the cutting
edge technology at its disposal Maya Digital Studios have taken
this movie to a whole new level. The visual effects promise to make
this an edge of the seat experience for the audience.
film has been shot in 3D stereoscopic format and hence matching
the left & right eye was a key challenge for team Maya. Doing
2D to stereoscopic 3D conversion for an underwater film was a humongous
task, given the fact that a lot of these shots also required painting
out creatures and reflections, or adding other objects like modelled
log in one of the key sequences. Maya also added blood and bubbles
to many shots, to indicate the injuries & respiration underwater
where in the fish continued to injure the people in the film.
3DD promises to enthral the audiences giving them something they
have never before seen on screen.
Piranha 3DD is a horror-comedy film directed by John Gulager from
a screenplay by Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton and will showcase
all the visual effects magic that Maya Digital Studios can conjure
up on the screen.
