Those of you who worked on Iron Man at ILM and DNeg will get a kick out of this:
Ra.One is beyond a movie. It’s just outstanding. The special effects of Iron Man are nothing in front of the effects used in Ra.One
Not sure why Ra.One is being compared to Iron Man. Maybe because it’s a ripoff? Hollywood is all about hype and as long as you don’t believe your own, you’re fine.
I wrote about Ra.One a few months ago and pointed out that not only did they rely on VFX from outside of India, but the supervisors had some negative opinions of the quality of VFX education in India.
But I know, it’s all going to India no matter what I say. Ra.One follows a succession of attempts in India to blow the lid off how to do VFX cheaply. Yet they seem to keep getting more and more expensive.
