Arjun : The Warrior Prince, was initiated in 2007 by director Arnab Chaudhari at UTV Animations. At the time, Raahil and the team at UTV started building the trailer for the film, which eventually also lead to the final look of the film.
The storyboard for the film was very detailed, to the extent that getting the same look and feel in the movie was quite a challenge. Raahil was involved with the Rigging, Technical and Outlining (For the 2D look) aspects of the project. This trailer was the turning point in his career and he learnt immensely from the experience, not only with improving skill, but also with the application of technically innovative ideas and its applications in a production workflow.
Due to the requirements of the project, Raahil also ended up learning MEL (Autodesk Maya’s core language), and this lead to a complete change in the way he would work as a technical artist from then on. Everything that followed had a substantial amount of programming involved.
This was one of the best and most exciting projects he has worked on so far.
