Mr Perfectionist SS Rajamouli is leaving no stone unturned to make his upcoming epic Baahubali grandeur. The latest is that the maverick director has zeroed in on internationally renowned “Foley” artist Phillipe Van Leer, who has worked for films like “Mr. Nobody”, “JCVD”, “Ben X” and etc, for Baahubali.
Foley artist is very different and new craft to Indian films as one recreates an original sound source by mimicking in a recording studio. This is usually helps while with the addition of recorded sound effects after the shooting of a film. Mr Van Leer is going to work on magnum opus Baahubali for a period of two weeks at the world-famous Dame Blanche complex in Belgium. He is going to work along with the film’s sound designer P.M. Sateesh.
Perhaps, this is the first time that a South-Indian feature film is having a Foley artist for the film. Considering that Baahubali is historical and periodic film involving war sequences, Rajamouli said to have roped in Mr Van Leer. With this, Rajamouli’s Baahuabli has rung a new record. Looks like, the film will be a visual splendour in making.
