ALOYSIUS VINCENT – III
The tenure of service in Venus pictures made a group of people [ Vincent, PN Sundaram, CV Sridhar, P Madhavan, NM Shankar and a few others of whom I am not too authentic to name here] work for movies- “Amara Dheepam”, “Uthamaputhiran”, “Punar jenmam,"" Meenda Sorgam” and the blockbuster “Kalyana parisu”. In each of these, Vincent stamped his class, even as CV Sridhar was registering his credentials in trend setting as a story/Dialogue writer.
It was in “Kalyana parisu” time that Director T.Prakash Rao took ill and had to be off work for quite some time. Venus Pictures had everything on the anvil for picturizing “Kalyana parisu” and were not too willing to shelve the schedule; they right away cajoled THE STORY WRITER SRIDHAR to take up directing the movie, using the established technical crew of Venus Pictures. A hesitant Sridhar ventured as a Director and quickly rose to national fame by his articulate story telling that brilliantly availed of the skills of A Vincent in making the right impact in the visual medium. Vincent’s calibre in planning some strategies of ‘panning the camera’ were too innovative to miss even by a novice viewer. His penchant for lighting cum camera orientation in visual presentation lent massive support to Sridhar’s natural inclination for novelty.
Even cinematographers unfailingly acknowledge with awe and delight, Vincent’s skillful lighting and ‘camera pan shots’ through some song sequences in the movie “Meenda sorgam”. Also of interest is the information that A V was the first cinematographer to have employed
“ zoom shots” as early as in “uthama puthiran” ; the technique had to wait for years before others could grasp the precise methods of executing the “zoom-framing” for effect.
Another feather on Vincent’s cap has been his innovation of employing the diffuser in creating the effect of depth. The pre-Vincent era witnessed the use of applying ‘ground glass’ shields as diffusers; but A V chose to use plain glass with a thin coat of Vaseline whose area could be varied to suit the occasion; also, the same piece can be wiped clean and used later with modified diffusion [wider or narrower] as may be required. All these point to one pertinent issue – ‘getting the desired effect by sheer innovation’.
No doubt Vincent’s image zoomed past many others in no time.
