Riva VFX & Animation Studios delivered 700 VFX shots for this movie
Riva VFX & Animation delivered around 700 VFX shots for Rajkumar Hirani’s PK. "PK" is unprecedented character of of the movie, Aamir Khan got transformed in to PK, by using flat hair, green lens, less make up, and popping ears.
Speaking to Media Mr. Hirani said, “Viral and his creative team at Riva has delivered far beyond my expectation, Their team give me confidence to go on when I felt challenged in shooting sequences which were next to impossible or difficult like the train blast sequence and also putting together the opening sequence with the spaceship enveloped in a cloud landing”.
Viral Thakkar, Creative Head & Partner at Riva said“ We are equally delighted to have been a part of the making of the film PK, and the opportunity to have worked with a visionary director like Rajkumar Hirani.”
The team spent over 3 months in R&D and putting together the different elements for the opening sequence.” says Sudhir Trivedi, Head of CGI at Riva. “ Also the character PK had one quirky trait which were the protruding ears, and during one particular sequence, he wiggles his ears, such and more sequences were entirely created in CG.“
VFX Supervisor for the film Prashanth Thakur, said Our brief was to keep the film looking as realistic as possible and not take away from the film’s story telling, which was largely focused on emotions, values & learning. The visual effects subtly filtered into the film’s screenplay and in no way makes it appear large and intimidating.”
Yogesh Chhag, Marketing Head at Riva couldn’t have been more excited with the company’s portfolio burgeoning with on going projects like Baby, ABCD-2, Dil Dhadkne Do, Airlift, Bangistan, Wazir and more. “We aim to reach all sections of the industry. Our all clients have found working with Riva markedly different in terms of the level of support and personal attention that they receive. While we are pleased to received nominations and awards, We never compromised with quality and we treat each project with the same level of care and dedication”
