Kochi: Kerala’s largest film shooting floor, VVM Studios, will be inaugurated today at Kalamassery in Ernakulam. Speaker P. Sreeramakrishnan will open the studio floor at 6pm. Directors Joshi, Ranjith, siddique and scenarists John Paul, A.K. Sajan and dignitaries from film and cultural fields will attend.
Sprawling in an area of more than 12,000 square feet and taller than a three storey building, the floor offers shooting facility with helicams and large jibs.
Wooden pegs are embedded across the entire studio floor for securing various props created as part of a scene.
To reduce production costs, the studio floor can be split into two, allowing production units to rent out the entire floor or only half of it, based on actual requirements. The floor has direct access to the air-conditioned make-up rooms and rooms where lead artists can relax between shots.
VVM Studios is set up on an extensive plot facing the Periyar River. There is enough space within the complex to set up a wide range of shots. Wide tarred roads offer ample scope for setting up street scenes.
The complex also has suite rooms, deluxe rooms, VIP lounge and an executive lounge for the director and lead artists to relax in comfort between shots.
