Ashoka the Hero -  VFX_001

As challenging as production was, it was a cakewalk compared to post production. The VFX team worked on a variety of different FX and 3d packages to create the effects. Once the VFX was locked, the layers were all sent to the compositing team where they were rendered for the editor.

Ashoka was created using myriad software platforms across three different locations. All lead characters were hand drawn, then scanned and cleaned up for digitization. For minor characters as well as crowd scenes and long shots, the animation was drawn directly using Wacom tablets.
