seven films but his adventures have failed to find favour with general readers and audiences What makes Dibakar’s film notable is his attempt to Indianise and universalise an investigator who has been generally viewed as quintessentially Bengali Sharadindu admittedly tried to project his truth-seeker as an exceptionally brilliant Indian who lived in colonial times but helped British-Indian policemen apprehend criminals rather than seeking help from them — a supposition explored and justified in numerous Western detective stories In postmodern India imperialism might be a thing of the

magic this time Neither the contents of his 38-page political report dismissing the breakaway Communist Party of Nepal-Maoists that it will dissolve and disappear in due course nor his claim that the

ignored taking actiongiving credence to suspicions that such bungling in a centralised party like the UCPN-M would not have been possible without his patronageespecially because all commanders were his loyalists There are doubts if the probe teams will bring out any concrete reports and punish the guiltyexcept perhaps finding some scapegoats at lower levels But politicallythe plenum was simply an wasted exerciseas the biggest party in the Constituent Assembly (CA) elected to complete the constitution-writing and peace process hardly had any occasion to introspect and analyse the failure on

pursue this part of my career because I was actually groomed to take over the family business “He is a textile man so I was supposed to work under him and do that But he saw that spark (filmmaking)

Updated: May 29 2014 12:53 am A still from gravity Top News Richard Graham graduated with a degree in civil engineering from Nottingham University eight years ago He didn’t have the intention of pursuing a career in the field he was trained in and wanted to break into the film industry With a penchant for technology Graham taught himself the intricacies of visual effects and joined Framestore the British visual effects company based in London in 2008 as a VFX line producer Graham was one of the four visual effects producers from Framestore who conjured up those larger-than-life visuals in Gravity the Sandra Bullock-George Clooney starring science fiction thriller which won seven Oscars earlier this year one of which was for visual effects He was in Pune recently to speak at a seminar organised by Anibrain Digital Studio Graham has been working with Framestore for the past six years and besides Gravity has top-grossing films such as Prince of Persia (2010) Clash of the Titans (2010) and Iron Man 3 (2013) under his belt He is awaiting the release of Paddington Edge of Tomorrow and Guardians of the Galaxy later this year Gravity itself was a three-and-a-half-year-long experience for Graham “We worked on it from the first storyboards till post-production” says Graham “The total number of people who worked specifically on the visual effects was 440 which is probably more than two-thirds of the credit list on the film” The film says Graham is the the biggest and longest project he has worked on “It did not involve more money Basically we had to be innovative and manage the budget well” he says “The film was made efficiently If one goes to Box Office Mojo the website that compiles budgets of all films one could see that it cost something around $110 million which is reasonable for a film of that size and scope It wasn’t super expensive but it was technically demanding work” he says The film also employs a counter-intuitive filming process “The shots were very long which meant that everything had to be planned to the minutest detail This was done using animation” says Graham “There was an animated version of the film and there was also a version in which we worked out all of the lighting so when you moved from one place to the next the lighting stayed consistent” he says They then proceeded to shoot with the the actors “The cast saw the animation and would have dialogue read-throughs in advance and we would mash the two Following this process we shot with the actors over six months After the actors had done their part we finished the film in the next 18 months” he says Graham had walked into the VFX industry in London when it was at a nascent stage He says that the industry has matured and gauges where it is heading “These days more and more of the frames are being generated digitally When we started we would add animation to photography but in Gravity as I mentioned we did the opposite” says Graham “On bigger budget films there is a larger demand now for animation because there are no limits to what can be achieved” [email protected] For all the latest Mumbai News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by
