Why is his SuperHero video so special…?
“The creation of the Superhero video was inspired by Marvel &DC creations. The uniqueness of the video lies in the visual effects that were created exclusively using LED lights through a unique motion technique that resulted in Light Paintings formations. No graphics, animations or VFX were used in the video,” said Rakesh.
“The Superhero video creation was exhaustive. We’ve captured around 12000 light painted images in tenure of 9 months. It almost took 8 hours to shoot two seconds of a video effect. Playing all the images in a sequence will give a video effect with nice and natural visual effects. He added his video creation is the first of its kind for which he has done lot of hardwork”.
In the process of capturing experimental photographs with a DSLR, Rakesh discovered something interesting called Light Painting. He found the images of Light Painting equivalent to Graphic effect and this grabbed his attention of which he later developed a full-fledged Superhero creation.
