Indian CGI takes over?

Interesting juxtaposition:

1) the awsome final scene of Enthiran, apparently India’s most expensive, and highest-grossing ever, film: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yysbbPStfWw

2) Today’s LA Times report that California firms are loosing their edge in special effects, with an increasing share of that work being done in India, Singapore and China

“Not long ago the visual effects industry was dominated by a few California companies with their own proprietary techniques and tools, along with the artists trained to use them. Now, thanks to advances in technology, the adoption of standardized techniques and readily available digital workforces, the industry has fanned out around the globe.”
