Baahubali is a movie that is being made uniquely with world class standards. Now, once again the film unit is creating a unique name for itself by doing something that has never been done before in Telugu Cinema.
From today (November 3rd), internationally renowned Foley artiste Phillipe Van Leer will be working for 'Baahubali' for a period of two weeks at the famous Dame Blanche complex in Belgium. The facility and the Foley artiste are highly regarded in Europe and around the world.
The concept of Foley is relatively unknown among Telugu film lovers. A quick look up in Wikipedia will give you this definition - "Foley is the reproduction of everyday sound effects that are added to film, video, and other media in post-production to enhance audio quality. These reproduced sounds can be anything from the swishing of clothing and footsteps to squeaky doors and breaking glass. The best foley art is so well integrated into a film that it goes unnoticed by the audience".
So in layman's terms, Foley recording will give filmmakers the right ambient sounds and background noises that will go a long way in increasing the authentic feel of a scene. Water sloshing, swords jangling together, footsteps on hard marble, ripple of a cloth in the wind etc. are some of the sounds that Foley aristes try to recreate effectively.
The recording will go on from the 3rd to the 14th of November . Director S.S. Rajamouli and his team have chosen the Foley artiste along with sound designer P.M. Sateesh to enhance the audio visual experience of 'Baahubali' for the viewers.
Shooting is currently going on at Ramoji Film City. Prabhas will be seen as the hero in this big budget period drama while Rana Daggubati will be seen in a negative role. Anushka and Tamanna are going to be seen as the female leads in this big budget Arka Mediaworks production.
