Cameraman Bala Bharani, who apprenticed under M.S. Prabhu has worked in four Tamil and one Telugu film so far. His work for the recently released Maayaandi Kudumbathaar has won him great appreciation. Bala Bharani had adopted a different and novel technique for the film. Instead of using a steadycam, he has used a smaller and mobile equipment carried on his shoulder to can the shots. He has also worked in Vedigundu Murugesan a cinemascope film starring Pasupathy and Jyothirmayi in lead roles. Most of the film has been shot in and around Pollachi. The colour, lighting and tone used in the film will be realistic as none of the actors in the film have used make-up.
He is currently working with director Ramprakash Rayappa and producer P.K Ram Mohan for the movie Suttu Pidikka Utharavu. He completed his studies from the Sacred Heart Martriculation School in his hometown Valparai. He is married to Asha Vanraj since May 2008, and they have a daughter Andriya Yazhini. He is part of the ever-growing community of the Association of Cine and Television Art Directors in Southern India. He recognizes the fact that a movie would not be possible without the work of an art director, who makes the movie realistic and relatable for the audience and at the same time stays true to the script and the director’s vision. The Association works to support the members in any way possible. This kind of initiative is necessary because art directors are behind the stage, but they also set the stage and therefore deserve appreciation.
