The recent movie Chhota Bheem: Himalayan Adventure, from the famous 2D animated series Chhota Bheem has been well appreciated by the viewers. We all know that the character Chhota Bheem is quite famous among the kids and the success of the movie was already on the cards, but the movie was appreciated by the critics as well for the advanced techniques used while developing the animation. Created by Green Gold Animation, there are few facts about the VFX used in this movie which are still unknown. These are:
New Avatars for the characters: The story of the movie is about the journey of Chhota Bheem and his friends to the Himalaya. Due to this, all the scenes were created in the snow and the animators had to recreate all the characters in a new avatar.
Like for the first time, they had to create Chhota Bheem in full clothes with cardigans, muffler, socks etc. and his female friends were seen in highlighted makeup in winter wears. Recreating a well-known character in all new avatars was really a tough job for the animators.
Creating Skiing part in animation: The managing director of Green Gold Animation, Rajiv Chilaka has told in an interview that creating the scenes of skiing were the most difficult part of the movie. Chhota Bheem was shown skiing and also fighting while skiing in this movie. The animators had to learn the skiing sport, in order to create the real action on the screen.
Creation of 3D background: A lot of efforts were also made while creating the 3D background. All the characters were developed in 2D animation, but the background like Himalayan Trees, snow mountains, snowfall and other background environment were created with the help of 3D and CGI effects. In fact, CGI was the reason for the delay in its release, but somehow it managed to make it in the winter.
Number of animators: Around 300 animators worked behind the scenes for the creation of extraordinary effects. These animators really worked hard and gave us this super- advanced piece of animation. They have also set a benchmark in the field of visual effects in India.
These facts have made it clear that Bollywood has improved a lot in technology and a better animated movie with good VFX is just around the corner. If you are intuitive in nature and have the passion towards animation, then you can go for various types of visual effects courses in India.
