Kayal gets Dolby Atmos audio; To release on Dec 26 (Tsunami Day)
Kayal an upcoming film directed by Prabhu Solomon will be released on Tsunami day, December 26.
The story is set in the tsunami-hit areas of coastal Tamil Nadu and the makers are planning to release it on the same day.
Dolby Laboratories announced that the much anticipated, Kayal will be mixed and released in Dolby Atmos. The announcement was made at the occasion of the music launch of the much anticipated movie, Kayal at the Sathyam Cinemas in Chennai.
Filmmakers use Dolby Atmos to place and move sounds anywhere in the movie theatre, including overhead, to make film audiences feel as if they are inside the move and not merely watching it.
Kayal is directed by Prabhu Solomon and produced by Madhan of Escape Artists Motion Pictures. The film features newcomers Chandran, Vincent and Anandhi in the lead roles, while D. Imman composes the film’s music.
The Dolby Atmos version of Kayal is being mixed by re-recording sound mixer Tapas Nayak at G Studio in Chennai.
Dolby Atmos has quickly become the preferred choice for next-generation sound in the cinema, with major studios, award-winning filmmakers, and exhibitors from around the world embracing its approach. Unlike traditional channel-based sound systems like 5.1, 7.1, and 11.1, which require filmmakers to think about the number and location of speakers, Dolby Atmos allows them to simply designate where in the cinema space each sound should be placed or moved to make audiences experience the film as if they were within its world.
The audio was launched on November 13. Siva Karthikeyan, Arya, Vikram Prabhu, Thambi Ramaiah, Vemal, Amala Paul and Anjali participated in the event. While talking about the movie the director said, the film will be different from his previous films Myna and Kumki.
