Why are CGI-animated films so costly?
A regular CGI film a-la Pixar- costs an equivalent amount to a live action movie, hundreds of millions of dollars most likely. Budget on a live action shoot goes on physical areas, sets, props, explosions, stunts, etc. But with a CGI motion picture it's a different story.
When a lot of individuals think of CGI
(computer generated imagery), they conclude of a motion picture with unique effects or flying company logos. But CGI animation
, in addition, can be applied to imagine complex concepts that would be complicated to explain in any other way.
