KOCHADAIIYAAN uses photo-realistic performance capture technology. It is done with the actors performing actually with 40 cameras shooting at the same time. It's translated into a digital image chosen by the director to give a fantasy feel.
Motion capture is essentially like a big sat nerve system where the markers placed on thebody are actually cars and the cameras around the studio are like the satellites that track them.
KOCHADAIIYAAN is the first fully CG Stereoscopic film to release in India.
KOCHADAIIYAAN is an animated film but not a cartoon film.
The technology captures the generic set of expressions that cover the basic musculature of the face. It requires a set of expressions that is very specific to the actor, such as a smirk or a smile, something that only the actors do.
There's no costume or co-actors or anything else. The actors just have to imagine everything around them.
It uses helmet cameras on all the principal actors to capture details of their facial expressions.
Rajinikanth has lent his voice for one of the songs of KOCHADAIIYAAN. He reached the recording studio and was casually informed about Soundarya and A.R. Rahman that they want him to croon.
The film will also see Thalaiva Rajinikanth do a special Rudra Tandav, which promises to be a treat for his umpteen fans.
KOCHADAIIYAAN is slated to release this summer. Have a look at the making below and we're sure you'll be left amazed
