Rajinikanth's 'Kochadaiiyaan' better than earlier motion capture films: Phil Stilgoe
Tamil superstar Rajinikanth's magnum opus 'Kochadaiiyaan', which releases worldwide on Friday, is a lot better than several earlier films made using motion capture technology in the west, says Phil Stilgoe, founder of Centroid motion capture company, which worked on the movie.
Soundarya Rajinikanth Ashwin-directed 'Kochadaiiyaan' is India's first motion capture photo-realistic 3D animated film. "I've been in this industry for nearly 15 years and I have seen the technology evolve. I can confidently say that 'Kochadaiiyaan' is a lot better than several earlier films made using motion capture technology in Hollywood," Stilgoe told IANS in an exclusive interview. "I'm more interested in how will this technology be in a decade from now and how India will use it to make it their own," he said.
Stilgoe also says the film should not be compared with any other film made using the same technology because the factors involved are different. "It's unfair to compare 'Kochadaiiyaan' with other films because you're talking different budgets, different time frames and different experiences. But I don't think these comparisons will be there in five to 10 years time because people will realize they were wrong to jump to conclusions," he added.
While 'Kochadaiiyaan' was made on a budget of Rs 125 crore, Stilgoe clarifies that not all motion capture films incur high costs. "The perception that you need to have high budget to use motion capture technology is wrong. For instance, if you were to go to a location and need a crowd of thousand people, you can create that with just two people in a studio in a few hours using this technology and save a lot of cost," he said.
In that case, why did films like "Avatar" and "Tin Tin", also made using the same technology, cost so much? "Initially, it was for big budget films during the technology's experimental phase. A film like 'Avatar' was made on thousands of crore using this technology because it was during its nascent stage and the makers were exploring it," added Stilgoe.
"The west invents new technology and works on it, so there's also invention cost involved besides production cost. Whereas, India wants to just use that technology to make some money," he said. For motion capture technology to become more accessible, Stilgoe believes 'Kochadaiiyaan' is the best film to set the ball rolling because it has megastar Rajinikanth in it.
"Indians have become ultra conservative and feel it's wrong to explore and that's where I think 'Kochadaiiyaan' is a landmark film because it dares to explore," he said. "To be able to turn heads in a direction needs a clout of Rajinikanth and that's why I think this is the best film to introduce us to motion capture technology especially to Indian cinema," he added.
In order to help India make the best use of the technology, Stilgoe's company has collaborated with Chennai-based company PixelKraft to launch its Indian arm Centroid India. PixelKraft's director Siddharth Kumar says a few Tamil films are gearing up to be made soon using motion capture technology.
"We are on the verge of announcing a few titles in Tamil which will be made using this technology. We hope these films will usher in visually a new breed of films. We hope our collaboration will bring a certain visual style to storytelling," Kumar said.
He feels the reason why 'Kochadaiiyaan' is considered an animated feature for children is because our visual literacy is low. "It's unfortunate that we see 'Kochadaiiyaan' as an animated film for children. This is because our visual literacy is very low as the majority of us have missed reading graphic novels and comics. If we don't embrace this film, we'll never appreciate the technology," he said.
Jointly produced by Media One Global Entertainment and Eros International, 'Kochadaiiyaan' also features Deepika Padukone, Jackie Shroff, Aadi Pinisetty, Shobana and R Sarath Kumar in important roles. ◕‿◕

Kochadaiiyaan mobile games surpass 1 million downloads
Mumbai: Two official mobile games inspired by the forthcoming Rajinikanth-starrer "Kochadaiiyaan" have crossed one million downloads on mobile applications.
The games, titled "Kochadaiiyaan The Legend: Kingdom Run" and "Kochadaiiyaan The Legend: Reign of Arrows", are developed by Vroovy, a joint venture between digital media company Hungama and game service company Gameshastra.
They were made available across iOS, Android and Windows platforms mid-March.
"With the blockbuster film slated to release this month, we have witnessed an upswing in the number of mobile game downloads. We are delighted that the anticipation and reach among the masses has helped us surpass the one million downloads mark across appstores," Neeraj Roy, managing director and CEO, Hungama Digital Media Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., said in a statement.
"Kochadaiiyaan", directed by Rajinikanth's daughter Soundarya R. Ashwin, is slated to release May 23. It is touted to be the country's first 3D animated photo-realistic motion capture film. ◕‿◕

We earlier reported that Santhanam starrer Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham would release on May 10th. From what we hear, Sun TV has bought the satellite rights for the movie for a whopping sum. Reportedly, the sum almost took care of the production costs incurred.
Meanwhile, Santhanam completed the shoot for Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham day before yesterday. The team cranked a song in Perungudi, and wrapped the shoot. According to sources close to the team, Santhanam has performed some tough dance moves that include flooring as well.
Vallavanukku Pullum Aayudham is directed by Srinath, and has music by Siddharth Vipin. ◕‿◕
In 'Kochadaiiyaan', few shots of the film are being captured in a realistic format (as shown in the below still) as such scenes should be in such a way.
Remaining portions would be having the animated look since only such particular coloring could chose that of a history film and it would take you to a virtual world and it would justify the heroics of a warrior. ◕‿◕

Rajinikanth Did Kochadaiiyaan Not Because I'm His Daughter: Soundarya
Filmmaker Soundarya Ashwin, who is making her directorial debut with Rajinikanth starrer Kochadaiiyaan says her father agreed to be part of this mega project for the script and not because she was his daughter.
She said, "Once he was convinced about the script and that it requires a certain kind of technology then only he said yes. Because the kind of action sequences you will see in Kochadaiiyaan, it is not possible in live action or in visual effects to get this kind of impact."
"Only after he was convinced about this technology, he agreed to do the film and not because I was his daughter. That did not even make a difference. I was confident of handling the project and my father said ok go ahead," Soundarya said in an interview.
The director says that she felt blessed to work with Rajinikanth, 63, in her debut film. Soundarya added that when the project happened he agreed to do the film not like a doting father but took a professional approach. Soundarya claims, "This is a performance capture photo realistic film. It is a first attempt here (in India) but it is very famous abroad (Hollywood).
" Soundarya says, "Usually, films like this take approximately five to six years but we have been over ambitious and god has been kind and it took less than two years to make this film," Soundarya said.
She says it was not deliberate on her part to cast her father in her debut film. "We started Rana and my father unfortunately fell ill and then he got better. And when he came back (to do films) we did not want him to do undergo much physical strain because Rana is a period film and Kochadaiiyaan is a prequel to Rana," Soundarya said,
The director concludes, "Kochadaiiyaan is Rana's father. We wrote the story as Rana's story was already there. We wanted to make it less stressful for my father and decided to use this technology... it is easier compared to live action." ◕‿◕
