Almost all my BB2 Studios and Freelancers, supposed to be in an exclusive list close to my chest, are used in 2.0 Post. Makuta investor GD, introducing me as a former employee ( I’m it’s co-founder ) and Pete admiring, rather grudgingly, about my work-hour starts at 4am. This means I’m still a force to reckon with in VFX :) Yay !! Jokes apart, here are the status update. SYERAA shaping up nicely as Magnum Opus, only couple of VFX Scenes left to be shot. SAAHO, will be a record breaker for Maximum number of VFX scenes ever filmed, MAAMANGAM next schedule this month and Prabhas’s JAAN kick-ass VFX Climax previz are some of the news worth sharing for 2019 start, from my stable. Stay tuned folks.”
