Cine Drilling Landscape architect
We are always thrilled by the gargantuan scenes shown in movies. Some awe inspiring scenes of the film are shot on rough terrains, on huge boulders, on thrilling cliffs. All the stunts performed on these sites give a dimension of reality to the movie. Cine Drilling Landscape architect is all about such “sets”, which are specially “designed” for that particular scene.
Have you seen those breathtaking scenes in the film “Vertical Limit” or have you ever wondered about the terrain where “cliffhanger” was shot. Although most of the scenes in the film are shot in studios using some colossal sets, sometime real terrain and outdoor shoots are necessary to add “reality” to such scenes. This is where a cine drilling architect is needed to handle the situation.
Cine drilling architect is an artist who works behind the screen. You will not notice him on the screen but if you look at the natural “sets”, where the movie is shot you will find how his work has helped the film to become a great movie.
You might be wondering what a cine drilling landscape architect does, right? He actually “carves” suitable locations required for particular scenes. Suppose director needs a river, flowing by an enormous boulder, with a wooden bridge on it. It might be hard to find such a location and even if you find such a location, it may not be economical to go there with all the crew for a single shot. At such times a cine drilling landscape architect comes handy.
It is very probable that the director can find a large boulder. The cine drilling landscape artist drills the place around that boulder and create a ditch that looks like a natural riverbed. Now by circulating water in this ditch, the scene of a river flowing by a boulder can be created. The wooden bridge can also be set temporarily. This gives a far more reasonable and economical solution than moving entire crew to a suitable site and then shoot a single scene. In such circumstances a cine drilling landscape architect is indispensable.
The property department is virtually incomplete without a cine drilling landscape architect, if a director wants to shoot a magnanimous, action packed movie that requires a number of diverse location to give the touch or reality to his shots. Even though suitable locations are available, aesthetic sense demands some changes in the natural disposition of the location.
This is also well handled by a cine drilling landscape architect. He is as indispensable as a choreographer, a stunt director, or an art director. He can “beautify” the landscape to such an extent that these restructured locations are passed as “real life” locations and viewers crave to visit the location at least once.
The days are gone when the entire film was shot in a studio using colossal set. Now people demand movie to be more realistic. This demands for scenes to be shot in natural setting; and as the natural settings may not be suitable for such shoots, a cine drilling landscape architecture becomes one of the most crucial crew members during shoot.
