3D digital avatar of MGR arrived soon!
The iconic actor-turned-politician MGR will be digitally resurrected in a feature film by director P. Vasu through the use of a ground-breaking new technology called N-Face. The technology developed by a Malaysia-based company allows real people from the past to be photo-realistically recreated onscreen.
Malaysia’s Orange County Sdn Bhd has been working with a leading Hollywood VFX Specialist to create a 3D digital avatar of MGR based on movie stills, publicity photos and films featuring the actor. They’ve also used artificial intelligence to define facial expressions and mannerisms characteristic of the iconic actor.
Talking about P. Vasu as the director of the project, Dato Margali Palaney, CEO of Orange County, says, “Vasu has the unique advantage of having grown up watching MGR from all possible angles, as his father was MGR’s make-up man.
