Asoka-The Hero.
video
We have seen lot of superhero in the past,who have taken over the imagination of the audience and children in special Shakthimaan is a brand that was quite popular in India in this genre.
However,creating a superhero one who is believe and connect with the audience is very difficult.That is why mythological stories are so popular in India.Where there have been few other superheros.The trend is going to break with Asoka-The hero.it is a 2d animated film that was the story of a young boy,who idolize his father a police men.
The movies is under the banner of illusion interactive and distributed by springboard films-division of PVR pictures,Mumbai.The film has been produced by Gyanendra jain and was directed by Gaurav jain.The hindi language movie is slated to hit the theaters on January 7th,2011.
Asoka-The hero is illusion interactive studio's first animation film.god,haven't they done wonders with an amazing script pulled out of from a simple concept.The experience of the studio in doing shorts and episode contents is quite evident and their core strengths which include concept that and production have come in winning notes.The movie made on a budgets of 2.5 Crore rupees is being released with 50 prints.
To add to the buzz and the eager anticipation are the efforts of the promotional vehicle which is coming up with licensing and merchandising.There are small cricket bats and bags,mugs and various other goodies to be taken home from various events held across.The country,even as we prepare ourselves with the country's next generation superhero.
"Why,I have been asked did i choose to build my myth around the emperor Asoka well to be honest.Emperor Asoka is personal hero of mine.Asoka has been one of the greatest emperors in the country.what is more remarkable is the fact that there are very few have showen the kind of character transformation that Asoka went through.To start with tremendous ambition and drive to gain and wield power and instead pursure peace and make such a critical choice,makes emperor Asoka,an admirable person and role model.His entire existence is a dichotomy and he isnt simply good or bad but much more complex"-Gaurav jain.

Movies in need of a sequel.
Here is our 3D animation studio at media freaks,we are continually exploring ways to expand entertainment one of the best formulas is to build upon one success and that may be the case with movies which may still need some sequels.
There are plenty of movies that have multiple sequels.I 'he begun to think it is considered mandatory for horror films.
Yet,there still seems to be many films that could and should have sequel made.The list could include childrens films,musicals and action films.creating a sequel always has the standard of the first movie to meet and preferably exceed in order to be a success.I imagine this can be intimidating for some producers but it should be a deterrent let's look at 10 possibilities.
  1. Finding Nemo
  2. The Incredibles
  3. The bug's life
  4. Wall.E
  5. Marry Poppins
  6. A Christmas story
  7. Top
  8. Mama Mia
  9. Big trouble in little china
  10. Avatar
I am sure as you read through this risk you through of other films that you would like to see a sequel made for there were certainly many more than 10 that could have been listed.some of these older once may have a remake before they are ever considered for a sequels.
But Avatar and the Incredibles are two.the 100,i will be watching for in the near feature.

A Happy Medium Between Animation And Live Action.
The blurring of lines between the genres has created opportunities for directors,cinematographers and others to transfer their skills.
When Gore verbinski was directing his upcoming mivie,"Rango",a spaghetti western -like tale set in a desert town overrun by bandits,he did what he typically does:have his principal actors,by Johny Depp and follow east members that include harry dean stanton,Abigail Breslin and Ray winstone ,act out key scenes.
The actors wore western costumers-Deep sported a giant cowboy hat and bandana and wingstone packed a sidearm,They had the usual array of props,including whisky glasses and sawhorses,on a stage at universe that also featured a saloon with a 40-foot-long wooden bar and the requisite swinging doors and even a chuckwagon.
This wasn't run-through for another one of verbinski's big-budget live-action movies.it was all done as part of a 20-day shoot to capture the voice tracks for his forst animated film,"rango",about a chameleon played by Debb with an identify crisis.
In animated movies,actors usually voice the lines of their characters in a recording booth.But verbinski figured he'd draw out more lively dialogue if the actors physically performed their scenes on stage.just like on a live action set.It was just like rehearsing a high school play,said verbinski,best known for directly the first three"Pirates of the caribbean",movies."Why give up on what we do in live action?.
With the extensive use of computer -generated animation,or CG,in movies such the"Pirates"franchise,"Avatar"and"Alice in wonderland",the lines are blurring between live-action and animated pictures in a way that Walt Disney himself could have scarcely imagined.That has created opportunities for directors,cinematography and even production designers to transfer their skills from one medium to another
