After the recent success of its association with the AR Mugugadoss’ helmed ‘Holiday’, the Mumbai based VFX studio is back in the news for collaborating with the recently released Born Free Entertainment Production’s ‘Bobby Jasoos’.
Speaking to AnimationXpress.com FutureWorks creative director Abhishek De says: “We have collaborated with Born Free Entertainment earlier to create the animation of their logo and we have recently re-done it for them as well. Both Dia and Sahil are wonderful people and they always have been supportive of our creative inputs for their projects.”
The production house approached the studio with a mnemonic of a little girl and wanted to incorporate the same in the film but was not too sure on how to use it. “They had come up with a mnemonic, which was like a design, where they had a little character that was representing ‘Bobby Jasoos’ as a child, so I kind of kept that in mind while creating the title sequence for the film,” adds Abhishek.
The complete pre-production work on the title sequence took nearly six weeks, but once the design and look was approved the 10 odd artists working on the sequence managed to wrap up the final sequence in just about three weeks.
Abhishek expounds: “Since the title track was not really fitting into the film well, we thought it would be best used in the title credit sequence where we can use the animation as well and create a sort of a back story for ‘Bobby Jasoos’.”
Apart from the title sequence, FutureWorks has also executed over 60-70 VFX shots which include: matt painting composites, green screen composites along with a few day to night composites as well. “There is a very pivotal character in the film, who has a missing toe and this is a very integral part of the narration and the idea was to make it more believable,” he reveals. “These are small little things but it was needed to go in the flow of the film. And since they went to Hyderabad to shoot the film, we didn’t want things to look hyper real but only add to the narrative of the feature.”
