VFX

Danny Boyle’s Life of Pi won the VFX Oscar and two studios that worked on the film – Rhythm n’ Hues and MPC – both having used a substantial number of their team members in India. Studios like Prime Focus, Anibrain, Tool Box, Maya, Red Chillies have been instrumental in altering the Hollywood perception that only US-based studios excelled in visual effects. India’s contribution to Hollywood movies is well known – the last two Harry Potter films, Pirates of the Caribbean, Percy Jackson, Life of Pi, Skyfall, Prometheus, The Jungle Book, Blade Runner have all used India talent. This has been enabled as larger studios have extended their pipelines and proprietary tool sets and software to India.
