The visuals and post production for Ayalaan

The film is nothing short of a visual spectacle and the editing and production crew did a wonderful job of bringing life to the green screens. Quite the testament to the efforts of the production team.

Film design and visuals

Led by director R Ravikumar and visual effects supervisor Bejoy Arputharaj, the team put in considerable thought and care into conceptualizing the design and model of Tattoo. From the inception of the project to the final release, the team did a wonderful job to bring the lovable alien to life on the big screen. The director started to sketch for the character, and it took him nearly seven years to lay the character that would captivate audiences and make them fall in love with Tattoo.

To ensure authenticity of the character, the creators also tried to source a 2 crore rupee puppet from the US, however, logistical challenges meant that the plan had to be dropped. The team later opted to use an indigenous puppet. A great showcase of resourcefulness. This not only helped to lower the production cost but it also offered the creators more control over the lighting and details during the filming.

Motion capture technology also played a crucial role in bringing the alien to life. Actor Venkatesh served as the stand-in for capturing the movements for Tattoo. Despite the team being bounded by a more strict budget, most of the expenses were geared to enhance the quality of motion capture instead of reliance on heavy VFX. This resulted in a visually striking character that is able to seamlessly blend into the visuals of the film.

Post production

The post production phase brought out the real commitment in each of the crew to deliver a world class cinematic experience on the big screen. With over 4500 visual effects shots, Ayalaan is trying to push the boundaries of Indian cinema to rival international standards. And despite the production being halted due to the COVID 19 pandemic, the team remain steadfast in their commitment.
