HIndie Awards 2016: Best VFX

Best VFX

Credit where credit is due, Baahubali had some stunning visuals. While at times the VFX did feel ropey, overall it was a genuine delight to see. The struggles of creating from scratch; a fascinating visually powerful world is no easy task and Baahubali makes great strides for Indian cinema in the Fantasy department however easy it is to spot the vfx in the film. 

Then there's works that require an authentic rebuild of a world long past us. It's not an easier task in any way despite that it has ready made references available through pain staking research for it. 

There's no way to really judge which is better, but one works wonders yet still falls flat by the standards [and budget] set by the other. 

In that case the latter wins, so here is winner of the HIndie Award for Best VFX...

Bombay Velvet, Prana Studios and Team!

With a mix of 3D animation reconstruction of 1960's Bombay and the use of Matte Painting to truly visual recapture exteriors of an iconic coming of age Bombay as well as the shading, coloring, texturing of interior and exteriors to imbue a period like quality to the look of the film. 

Bombay Velvet's VFX is a shining example of the daunting task taken by the below mentioned VFX team in visualizing Anurag Kashyap's vision to a tee. It's no doubt that the film hemorrhaged heavy losses, but with the stunning works these individuals have done together; it is no doubt their efforts require a loud applause.
