Malayalam cinema is going from strength to strength.

Kathanar, which features Jayasurya, riding high on the accolades of Amazon Prime Video's Sunny, is a film using virtual production technology, aided by sophisticated workflows like Tech-Viz, Stunt-Viz and Post-Viz.

Asset-creation processes like full body 3D scans using 200DSLR camera photogrammetry rig and Vicon-based infra-red biped motion capture have already been initiated.

Hollywood films Jungle Book and Lion King were the pioneers of this technology.

"We are grateful to have an opportunity to bring these technologies used in international cinema to Malayalam cinema through Kathanar," Jayasurya tells Subhash K Jha.

"Kathanar will be a global cinema that will integrate the technocrats in our country. The pre-production and principal photography of Kathanar will be completed in a year and it will release in seven languages."
