Incredible Visual Effects Breakdown
It is evident from the budget that the entire population of India has rushed to the cinema theatres to watch the movie.
So do you know how the scenes were created in the movie?
Can you remember the sequence of Tiger versus the wolves?
Let me elaborate the entire VFX breakdown of the succession.
The wolves were trained for months to match the action sequences of the required scene Salman fighting among the icy mountains of Austria.
The wolves were shot in live-action and they faced the camera with utmost care and responsibility.
Dealing with wild animals like wolves is not only difficult but also risky.
Here in this scene, the entire production team captured the portions of the wolves running behind Salman and Junior and their motion was tracked.
Independent actions of Salman were shot with the help of a camera.
Afterwards, both the scenes were compiled and blended together as per the storyboard’s necessity.
Prior to accomplishing all the scenes, the storyboard artists were set to plan all of the scenes so that the director gets a visualization of the sequences clearly.
As a result, this will help at the time of the shooting of the scenes with the wolves as well as Salman.
With a view to aiding the VFX artists to compile and combine the two parts of Salman and the wolves together, the storyboard artist worked hard to turn out the actual scene with exact clarity and precision.
Apart from this scene, several other scenes in the movie have also used Visual Effects.
The oil tanker blast scene has consummated a major portion of the VFX with much precision as per the scene’s requirements.
The scene where the truck hit the front area of the hospital is a massive scene where the film portrays the blast of the oil tanker.
The stuntman Sam trimming is assigned with the task of blasting the truck in the above-mentioned area and he had done this successfully and carefully.
However, the blast needed more fume and fire explosion effects which were missing in the real scene.
These effects were added by the Visual Effects team to add vigor to the explosion scene of the movie.
In the movie, there are several other instances of explosion scenes like the car crashing and exploding.
All these scenes would not have been possible without the effective use of the Visual Effects.
As it is a story that depicted extensive actions and fighting scenes, so it is obvious that they would require efficient works and contribution of VFX.
In the fighting scenes on the hills, Salman has done most of his parts in the wire.
Thus it can be drawn that wire has been used effectively in the scenes.
But within this, the action sequences of Katrina cannot be missed.
Though the film had rocked hard the floor of Moviemaking, it could have used much VFX techniques in certain portions.
It would have employed some advanced level of Fume FX or other explosion Visual Effects software to enhance and embellish such scenes of blast an explosion.
The film has indeed shown the efforts and the hard work of the entire crew as wells the director and the artists.
