Skywork Studios has now captured the Bollywood screen in 3D. To introduce briefly, Skywork Studios specializes in Live Action Stereoscopic 3D and are Digital Film Service Providers.
Their most recent movie 'Pizza 3D' a UTVproduction was very well received by the audiences and praised by the critics for their high-end technology &camera work which were creatively used for 3D story telling.
Both as owners and operators Ashish Mittal and Surabhi Khetan Mittal aim on providing quality services and solutions to their clients. On successfully completing ‘Pizza 3D’ they look at joining hands with varied directors, producers and production houses in Bollywood to jointly work together and concentrate on films that can explore the creative use of Live Action (Stereoscopic) S3D.
Skywork is equipped with a well-experienced team and the highest technology developed for shooting live action S3D films worldwide.
Films like ‘Transformers – Age of Extinction’, ‘X-Men – Days of the future past’, ‘The Great Gatsby', 'The Hobbit' (All parts), 'The Amazing Spiderman’, etc. were all shot using the fully automated3D Rig known as the “TS5”. The TS5 rig weighs 25kgs, and can be mounted on a Jimmy Jib, techno crane, or used handheld or on a steady cam. The shooting speed is better than any other 3D technology in the world and production can actually shoot at the speed of a 2D film if planned well. Using the TS5,Red Dragons along with Ultra Prime lenses create the same quality one receives on a big budget Hollywood movie without being as expensive.
Stereography changes how you approach composing a shot. In essence choices of placing the cameras, choosing the lenses and framing for shooting native 3Dall are to be suggested by Stereographers. So in best case scenario, depending on the production Ashish and Surabhi (3D Producers & Stereographers) are not only involved during production but ideally participate during post scripting or during the shot division stage of a movie and complete the project as stereoscopic post supervisors to ensure that the creative and the technical aspects of 3D are not compromised with. Based on the project they also fly down their international team members for certain expertise required by the film.
Skywork Studios has carved a niche for itself in the Indian film industry. Asend-to-end Stereoscopic 3DService Providers, their team has completed films like OM and ACTION (2nd unit) in Hyderabad, India in 2011 and 2012. They’ve also worked with Real Image in creating a 120fps HFR 3D promo in 2012 (this was a technical breakthrough) and A Mythological short film for Sagar Arts in 2013.
They are currently shooting the first Indian historic live action S3D feature film “Rudramadevi” in Hyderabad. This film has a budget of Rs. 55 crores and the director has hired the same team from Jodha Akhbar to ensure that the production quality is of the highest level.
Along with Digital filmmaking, the Stereoscopic 3D tide is high and it is bringing new fresh cinema world over. Filmmakers like James Cameron, Martin Scorses, Peter Jackson and Ridley Scott have all embraced 3D. Using the Ts5 system along with a well-experienced team, filmmakers are getting comfortable with technology and they are concentrating mainly on creativity and no longer battling with technology. It is time for more filmmakers to aspire to do the same here in India.
