Prime focus, global post production and vfx house has delivered yet another visual treat for Mukesh Bhatt’s Tum Mile with the VFX team led under the creative guidance of Merzin Tavaria, Chief Creative Director and the Digital Intermediate team led by Rohan Desai, DI head and Chief Colorist , Prime Focus.
The VFX team of 79 creative professionals was led by VFX Supervisor Ritesh (Ricky) Aggarwal and the look and mood of the film was set by ace Colorist, Aashirwad Hadkar.
What we have created in Tum Mile is exceptional, said Merzin Tavaria. “Depicting events from the past with a see-it believability factor was a challenge for Prime Focus but we’ve successfully recreated the scenario and realistically projected it with effective live-action effects, complete CG shots, Compositing, matte painting etc”, adds Merzin.
Talking about the DI, Rohan Desai said, “Since the movie is set in the backdrop of a real incident, the client wanted the scenes to look as real as possible. In the movie, some scenes are shot in glossy and colorful locations of South Africa and the others in Mumbai with the backdrop of the torrential flood. As always, extreme change in conditions and locations was a challenge to the DI team. The team had to merge each and every scene to ensure continuity.”
Tum Mile is a love story set against the backdrop of the infamous July 2005 Mumbai floods. Directed by Kunal Deshmukh of Jannat fame, the film stars Emraan Hashmi and Soha Ali Khan in lead roles.
