Building a City

Originally based on production concept, Makuta’s artists designed a huge 7Km diameter period city for SS Rajamouli’s Baahubali. Building intricate interconnecting structures to form the initial palaces, we assisted in practical set layout with the on-set art department, liaising with our artists and collaborating to ensure that the design work flowed from the live set through to the digital extensions. Through several iterations and hundreds of detailed elements incorporated into the shots, the vastness of the city centre stretched out to the horizon where it could only be seen in its entirety.
