Rotomaker; India’s VFX giant recently bagged the “Best VFX Company” award at Indian Glory Awards 2021.
With an impressive portfolio which amalgamates titles from VFX and gaming industry, the group not only works on world class VFX movies from Hollywood and international markets but also has its academy which provides courses in regards to VFX and more.
Originally based out of California, the studio has eventually spread its wings to various other locations. With more than 1000 movie credits to their name, including acclaimed Hollywood movies, regional movies, and television series, the studio has risen as a formidable name in the industry. The fact that they are authorised could be attributed to the rigorous auditions they underwent by the likes of MPAA, Disney, Marvel Studios, FOX, Warner Bros, Sony Pictures Imageworks and other VFX facilities in Hollywood.
Founded back in 2008 by industry veteran Madhav Reddy Yatham (Mike), the studio has been pushing forward in terms of operations and productivity under his leadership. Rotomaker and the group of companies is thriving and generating more employment. The company, which began on a modest note with 15 employees, currently has around 1500 persons working in various departments.
Using a robust backend of talented artists and leading technologies paired with superb management, Rotomaker’s clients enjoy unprecedented savings on their VFX outsourcing needs. Rotomaker in India has become synonymous with VFX outsourcing.
A chat with Reddy gave us an overall idea of how he, as a successful entrepreneur, took Rotomaker Studios to where it is today. “I started my career in 1993 in India. I studied animation and visual effects at CDAC, Pune initially and then moved to Mumbai for a job. I was in the feature film division of Crest Communication, working for Shyam Ramana as the head of film visual effects division for around four years and then I moved to Vancouver, Canada. While in Canada I worked in a company called Rainmaker. Eventually, I moved to the U.S.A. with a citizenship in the year 2000. During my time in America I worked for Deluxe, Technicolor, Ascent Media Company 3, Sony, Warner Bros., Universal and various other post-production facilities,” shares Yatham.
We hope Indian studios like Rotomaker keep making our country proud with their achievements.
