The makers of Rajinikanth-starrer Kochadaiiyaan did it for their CG stereoscopic entertainer. And now, the makers of Arya and Sayyeshaa’s Teddy have done it for their film. What, you ask? Use motion capture (mo-cap) technology. Yes, Teddy, the makers say, is the second film — a Tamil language one, again — to use the technology extensively to bring to life a teddy-like character.
Director Shakti Soundar Rajan had revealed that the computer-generated special character will have screen presence of more than an hour in the film. And now, he informs us that he has relied on motion capture technology, which was first experimented within the country by the makers of Kochadaiiyaan. He says, “Unlike the Rajinikanth-starrer, ours isn’t an animated movie. The technology has been used only for one particular character. We roped in an artiste to bring the special character, which will appear for 80 minutes, live on screen.”
