Ore Nyabagam, a romantic film starring newcomers, is set to become the world's first 2D HFR (high frame rate) film. HFR films use a higher frame rate, 48 or even 60 frames per second, while normal films use 24 frames per second. The HFR technology was first used in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey by Peter Jackson. It was shot in 3D HFR.
Says Vignarajan, the director of Orey Nyabagam, "When you shoot at 48 frames per second, you do not have motion blur, which is common in normal films. This causes less strain on the eyes. Also, you get life-like images when you shoot in HFR." He compares this progression to the audio industry moving from stereo to surround sound.
The HFR technology had come in for some criticism during the release of The Hobbit as the hyperreal images made the movie-watching experience similar to watching something on HDTV
The director has shot the film using a digital camera (Red Epic) but adds that suing the technology is also expensive in certain ways. "One needs three times more hard disc space to store the images. And editing the images is a challenge,"
