Shankar partners with the Avatar team

Mar 19, 2013

Director Shankar’s grandiose ideas have no boundaries and he will go to any length to ensure that the required technology and technical assistance is made available to execute his ideas. As he roped in the legendary Stan Winston Studios, that worked on Terminator and Jurassic Park, for Rajini’s Enthiran, he has partnered with Weta Workshop for his latest film ‘I’.

Weta Workshop is a studio backed by the Oscar winning director Peter Jackson and his companion Richard Taylor, and their credentials include works for Avatar, Lord Of The Rings & The Hobbit to name a few.

Shankar has stated that the Weta has worked on Vikram’s make up for a special song that was shot in a magnificent set created by art director Muthuraj. The director says that the song coupled with Vikram’s make up and performance will definitely be new to Indian cinema.

The film has only about 1/3rd of the shooting left and it is believed that all the remaining portions will utilize the Weta Workshop for the make-up department. Clearly Shankar is aiming at international standards for ‘I’.
