Miniature model making and visual effects for film 'Ra. One' (2011)
Mattes and Miniatures created a 1:8 scale visual effects miniature of Mumbai Railway Station and a 1:5 scale special effects miniature train and station section for the Bollywood superhero film Ra. One.
The model was designed to break away after a runaway train crashes through the entrance of the station. The building collapse was orchestrated with bomb release and cables, and the train was driven through the set via cables under the road surface. Train and building were shot separately then the crash was composited digitally.
