STUDENT EXPERIENCE OF MAAC CHOWRINGEE OVER 24FPS VFX CHALLENGE SHOOT
Every year, we arrange shooting for 24FPS VFX Challenge. This time on 14.7.16, we had arranged a place near Gateway Hotel, Ruby and started our shooting set-up process we set up the light & chroma shoot platform. It almost took around 1 hour 30 min to do the entire setup & after that we had started with the shooting. We had arranged a high end DSLR camera, with a professional cameraman, arranging track for camera movement, baby lighting, softbox etc.
Students made arrangement of all the props, costumes, makeup etc. It took full day to shoot as per our requirement. This year we also did the Chrome Ball Photography, which was a new thing to the students, and later on they will be using that data for their CG lighting purpose. One of our highly experienced faculties’ from Maac center, who had worked in Hollywood movies, came from Mumbai to guide us. It was a fun filled day with lots of learning, planning, and execution.
