Happy Pongal

Thursday, January 14th, 2010

Hi Everyone…

Ubhayakusalobhari!!! (UBKS)
(Its a Sanskrit word used by Ambi in ANNIYAN. Meaning: – I am fine… Everything ok here… Hope you and your family doing well… etc… etc…)

Most of you have asked about Stanwinston Studios role in Endhiran.

Yes. Endhiran is the first Indian movie to use Stanwinston Studio’s Animatronics technology. We all are proud and happy to be associated with No.1  Hollywood studio who did a great job in movies like Jurassic Park, Predator, Terminator, Ironman and the recent Avatar.

Myself, Rajini sir and our Technical crew have been at Los Angeles for couple of weeks at Stanwinston Studios for scanning, make-up test and preproduction works in July 2008. We all are excited that we are working at the place where Steven Spielberg, James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger have worked.

After 1½ half years of preparatory work a group of  top technicians came to Sun Studio’s Chennai sets and worked around for 4 months. 22 scenes of Endhiran Movie have been shot using Animatronics and Special Make-ups. Most of Important scenes was shot lively with Rajini sir using Animatronics without CGI.

At the end of the day Stanwinston people told that they are very happy that Endhiran movie utilized maximum animatronics techniques in so many scenes in all possible ways, which is very rare in Hollywood too… Cool….

Wish you all a very very Happy Pongal…!!!

And my pongal is on the sets with Rajini Sir, Ash and Endhiran crew.
Today we are having shooting.

C U again ASAP.

Yours
Shankar
