Urumeen will have motion capture animation done indigenously

The Simhaa-Kalaiyarasan-starrer Urumeen will have a five-minute opening sequence that has been done using motion capture animation, a technology that was used in Rajinikanth’s Kochadaiiyaan. Says the film’s director Sakthivel Perumalsamy, “It is widely believed that motion capture animation involves huge cost and takes too much time. I just wanted to break this myth. The opening scene in the film involves a huge battle and I cannot afford a budget to go for hundreds of actors. So, I decided to do it this way.”
