- NEW DELHI - It is a tie-up that is likely to catapult the outsourcing of animation - which has the potential to generate more than US$1.5 billion for India - to another level. Barrie M Osborne, the legendary producer of Hollywood blockbusters like The Lord of the Rings, The Matrix and Face-Off, will partner with N Madhusudhanan, a visual effects veteran in India, to found a visual effects studio here that will cater to a global audience already high on three dimensional (3D) and special effects. The studio will be modeled along the lines of the famous Weta Digital in New Zealand, renowned for its work on The Lord of the Rings trilogy. What is more, Osborne is set to produce his next blockbuster in India.
