The integration of VFX (Visual Effects) in the Uganda Film Industry today.
While shooting our awesome film KEMI - The Final Tragedy , the Director took a shot that our Make-up Artist hadn't planned for hence couldn't do her Special Effects Makeup of a wound on the baby's head on set, and when the Director locked his picture in post Production and presented it to the make-up artist for confirmation of her work, she noticed that the shot she didn't plan for was used, this tasked the director to find a Visual Effects Personnel to fix the mess, Ochwo Emmax from VIA FILM STUDIO was hired to do the job and with his skills and expertise in Visual Effects he was able to fix and add a believable wound effect with two houseflies in the shot as shown in the VFX breakdown video below. The same person did the coloring of the Film.
KEMI had it's Ugandan Premiere theatrical Release at the Country Cinema Mbarara where it showed for 7 consecutive days from 8th to 14th March 2020 before the COVID 19 Wave and Lock down hit the country.
This film had been scheduled to have a Kampala Premiere on 9th April 2020 at Theatre Labonita but this Premiere and other planned Country screenings didn't happen due to lockdown.
We hope to have this film screened all-over the country and world when the world gets back to the new normal after lockdown.
