Shooting a film in 3D can be expensive, but making a 3D film using a stereoscopic camera rig equipment is exorbitant. According to director Hemant Madhukar, the equipment which was used for films like Amazing Spiderman and The Dark Knight makes viewing a better and a more exciting experience for the audience. "The rig which is made by a US based company called 3Ality is designed to hold two cameras in such a way that they are used like one giving more depth to the picture. The rig is expensive, the time taken to shoot this way doubles, and one has to hire the services of a stereographer, which further adds to the cast. All this makes it very expensive, but the 3D effect in the theatre is amazing," says Madhukar, who shot his Mumbai 125 Km, a horror film using a rig.
Also shooting in 3D needs more light than when shooting in 2D, says the director who had earlier helmed the horror flick Flat. "For Mumbai 125 Km, 90 per cent was shot in the night; we had to light up the jungle of Mumbai's National Park and Film City, where we shot the film," he adds.
The film's cast includes Karanvir Bohra and Veena Malik and is slated to release early next year.
