*EXCLUSIVE* The making of TZP Clay Animation

Remember, you saw it here first!! :)

Stop motion animation veteran, Dhimant Vyas and Aamir Khan Productions have generously shared photos of the making of the Clay Animation sequences from Taare Zameen Par.

Also read the exclusive interview with Dhimant Vyas where he explains the technique he used to animate these sequences and chats with us about his experience of animating for a Bollywood film for the first time ever. Taare Zameen Par or ‘TZP’ has made Bollywood history by being the first Hindi film to extensively use clay animation in the movie.

    Hi Kaka,

    You are great! I am very unfortunate that I did not get chance to work with you when I was in TIS. Excellent movie and great work like a “Masterpiece”.

    Hi Dhimant,

    Your style of stop motion ..is different and Innovative, Since I was amused when I saw this on screen that someone from pixsar or wall disney guy must have done it . But he turn out to be Indian Guy. Simlply great.
    I am also doing clay animation so I know what efforts it takes to create this aniamtion.
    Go onnnn…
