Sushant Singh Rajput tasted huge success when his last release, MS Dhoni: The Untold Story, fared well at package workplace. While various innovations were utilized to reveal Sushant as Dhoni on video of his important matches, the actor says filming in front of a green screen was one of the most important techniques used in the film. He feels that the training for acting before green screens will quickly be part of the curriculum at acting schools. Discussing the innovation used to replicate his face over Dhoni’s during important sequences, Sushant states, “Face replacement isn’t too tough. You have to rest on a chair and keep in mind 10 various expressions that have actually to be provided for a single shot. It is an entirely different art. What you saw in the movie is not deal with replacement. It is in fact body replacement.”
And while Sushant has actually been accepting compliments happily, he describes, “Body replacement is very hard, as you have to match your whole body language [with that of the character] I really played all those shots, and did wicket-keeping too. If people think it’s just deal with replacement, I take it as a compliment, since that means I have actually done a great task. There are couple of shots where I am holding Sachin (Tendulkar) and Yuvraj (Singh) is jumping on me– just those are face replacements. We have actually just begun doing this in Bollywood, so people will gradually understand the distinction. Soon, all acting schools will have a different topic, as part of which students will be taught ways to act in front of a green screen.”
The concept of editing a live action film is pretty easy to understand, right? There’s a whole bunch of footage that needs a whole lot of cutting to make the film work as a story. But how does editing work for an animated movie?
PASADENA, Calif., Sep 13, 2016 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — Chart-topping musical artist and Los Angeles-based filmmaker Michael C. Perry today announced that his film “Empty Box of Wine” has won first prize in the category “Best Animation” in the 12th Annual Action on Film International Film Festival. Perry is the lead singer in Jour Majesty, who last year rose to #2 on the indie folk charts; his entry into the film festival accompanies the upcoming Jour Majesty album, “Empty Box of Wine.”
This lushly animated film follows the romantic complications of two musicians as their troubles unfold against the rain-slicked streets of San Francisco. Inspired by a chance meeting in a hotel lobby that stirred up one of Perry’s favorite lines from Hemingway’s classic “A Moveable Feast” — “She was very pretty with a face fresh as a newly minted coin if they minted coins in smooth flesh with rain-freshened skin, and her hair black as a crow’s wing and cut sharply and diagonally across her cheek” — the film captures the spirit of San Francisco as seen through Perry’s eyes that day: wet, ephemeral and very much alive.
Famed UK music journalist Alex Faulkner has compared Jour Majesty’s music to the “rootsy Americana” of The Band as well as more modern artists, such as Ryan Adams.
The organic result of Perry’s successful commercial career in film, animation and audio engineering, combined with his band Jour Majesty’s many recent successes, “Empty Box of Wine” sparks a captivating conversation about the fleeting infatuations that compose the days, months and years of our lives.
The Action on Film International Film Festival ran September 2 through the 9th; screenings were held at the Krikorian Monrovia Cinema 12 & LFX. The black tie awards dinner was held on Saturday, September 10 at the Westin Hotel Pasadena.
