development of technologies, availability of machinaries and other leading
production houses in India make us believe that more animation films are
yet to arrive in coming years.
Tamilrockers are the leading
piracy site in India. They leak all the movies that are releasing in India.
They release the pirated versions of animated movies too.
What is animation?
movies are the graphic content films that are made by spending huge amount of
money. These films are mostly developed on the basis to attract the children
towards watching cinema. Animation movies are loved by all aged people.
HISTORY AND DEVELOPMENT OF ANIMATIONS
We may think
that the animation comes as a result of development in the cinema, but the real
fact is that the animations that lead to the development of cinematography. Let
us rewind towards the ancient days where the magic lantern light and the shadow
light which gives an idea about the cinematography to the people. The motion of
the objects against the wall by light gives the ideas about shadow play.
Later this was made use by the artists and
developed it into an art, which were seen as animation by the people. This laid
the stone for the development of cinema as well as eventually animations.
Before the advent of the
cinema and films the people developed the devices that were used as a tool to
display the animated objects. This can be viewed only by one or few persons.
Then in the modern age these devices are used as a study material or object by
the animation students.
Phenakisticope is the first
successful rotating device used in the evolution of animation. This is a
rotating device that explains the science and principle of animation. The
illusion is the principle of animation development. Phenakisticope is an successful
device as early said, is popular among the entire Europe and it earns a
respectable amount of money for the sellers.
The next development is the
flip book in the animation world. We all know about flip book, in this the
pictures are drawn on every page of the book in a random manner and the book is
flipped open when all the pictures drawn in it appear as a motion or simply
like a video. The principle behind the working of this simple flip book is the
In 1888, the first animation film is played with
the help of Praxinoscope, in which the pictures are drawn in separate sheets
and produced with the help of 600 frames which plays 15 minutes of video.
Later the standard animation
movie was played in 1890s. More advanced technologies are followed over the
years. The stop motion technique and the CGI animations. In this the computer
graphics techniques are used. Machinima is use of 3D technology in the computer
graphics. The people using this technique are called machinimists and the
device used is called Machinimators.
The first animated feature
film was El Apostol developed in 1917. Poor Cinderlla in 1934 and Snow White
and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937 are the famous animated movies. 101 Dalmations in
1961 was another film that succeeded commercially
Beauty and the Beast in 1991
was the first animated film to be nominated for its best picture at Academy
Final Fantasy: The spirits
Within was the motion captured and CGI animated film that was released in 2001.
Toy story 3 was another successful animated film that earns $100,000,000
worldwide also the first animated movie to be released in 7.1 surround
ANIMATION MOVIES IN INDIA
Kochadaiiyaan, Mighty Raju are
the recent animated movies that were developed in India.
The popular animation movie in
Tamil is Kochadayan, is a historical, action movie starring Rajinikanth and
Deepika Padukone. The movie is written by K.S. Ravikumar and directed by Soundarya
R. Ashwin. India’s first photorealistic motion capture movie as the appearances
of the animated characters are the real copies of the respective actors.
Rajinikanth, Shobana, Deepika Padukone, Aadhi, Jackie Shroff were the popular
actors among the movie cast of Kochadaiiyan. Nasser plays the villain role. Decreased
comedy actor Nagesh was made available in this movie using the 3D model. The
song track and the back ground music was done by A.R. Rahman. The movie was
released on 23rd May 2014 after several delays.
Why the animated movies
are not working out in India?
The budget is the main problem
for the Indian producers, so that there is only a less amount of movies coming
out. Production budget may be a reason but we should not say it is the major
factor because we can make a good animation film with the same budget spend on
the films releasing in India by changing the script alone. Because the Indian films
were failed to attract the audience. People also making comments on the social
medias platforms about the lower movie ticket cost in India might be a reason
for the decreased budgets of production houses. That comment was totally a bullshit,
the reason behind this is already people were craving for the piracy sites
likes tamilrockers because of increased ticket costs after the hit of
monetisation and GST. Increasing the ticket cost will not work.
The another reason is the
movie makers doesn't respect the intelligence the children having in these days.
They need to make movies for the children. On making animated films one need to
be concerned and limit the adult contents in the movie and make movies which
every people watch.
The movie makers need to
produce the animated movies with good content. It need to be more imaginative
and should impress the people watching. Our directors are just making the
normal movie in animated form, that really doesn't work. People were watching
the old stories for a long period of time and not going to appreciate this
Will there any hope for
animations in coming days?
People are expecting a variety from the film makers. As the
scope for the beginners in animation is hard, because it is not the normal
cinema. You need to be successful, you need to stay in the particular field.
Dedication and hard work which makes you successful.
