      Ace Cinematographer PC Sreeram Says Hollywood Is Not His Competition, Criticizes English Films


      Ace cinematographer PC Sreeram says he does not consider Hollywood as his competition because film-makers there are only churning out sci-fi, fantasy and superhero films.

      "I don't consider Hollywood as my competition. I think they should consider us competition as the world is neutralised on digital technology," Sreeram told PTI.

      The Southern cinematographer, who has filmed acclaimed sci-fi I, said these days producers in the West are mostly coming out with computer-graphic oriented or fantasy films while the scenario is changing in India.

      "If you see at films from London, I think the projection is so bad. Before it was not like that. I think the 'maya' of Hollywood is gone. They are making CG oriented and fantasy films," he said.

      "Mostly they (Hollywood film-makers) make films on Superman, Batman and that is why they are shifting to TV series like 'Game of Thrones', 'House of Cards' etc. I think one just can't show fantasy films... you have to make films that are different. Hollywood film-maker Clint Eastwood did a brilliant job in 'Flags of Our Fathers'," he said.

      With the success of Indian big ticket film like Bahubali, the 60-year-old artist said, "Things have been changing in a big way. India has seen unbelievable growth. Today Indian cinema is seen all over the world. The market is growing."

      Sreeram is currently working on Sivakarthikeyan's upcoming film Remo, which is being directed by Bhagyaraj Kannan.
