    How Akshay pulled off his 8x10 Tasveer double act

    How Akshay pulled off his 8x10 Tasveer double act
    Bollywood loves 'seeing double'. Its motto: when you can have two hunks for the price of one, then why not?
    The latest 'double act' was in 8x10 Tasveer , where Akshay Kumar faced off with Akshay Kumar. And this time, the techniques used were a little different.

    Earlier, Bollywood relied on techniques like shooting in several layers and shooting with the help of chroma to make the role believable. But in 8x10 Tasveer , director Nagesh Kukunoor went a different way.

    He got VFX house Prime Focus to do frame-by-frame rotoscoping (a technique of cutting out images). Here's how it was done.

    All of Akshay's scenes were shot twice - in two different layers - using a dummy character wherever needed. Later, the dummy character was rotoed out from each frame and replaced by the Akshay shot.

    And some of the sequences were more difficult to pull off than others - like the one on the boat.

    'It was a long sequence and was shot on a boat where everything was shaking,' said Merzin Tavaria, the creative head of Prime Focus.

    'As the part of the post production, we had to roto out Akshay in each and every frame. Besides, all the shots needed to be stabilised because of the shake.'

    However, the sequence that taxed Merzin the most was something totally different. 'The scene where both the Akshays fight was the most challenging one,' he said. And we can imagine why - think about all that delicate cut and paste work.

    After checking out these pictures, we plan to rent the 8x10 Tasveer DVD and see if we can spot any of the effects ourselves.
