Dart River Wilderness 360 action!

08 Feb 2016
Animation Research Ltd. team members Craig McNaughton and Sophie Luther found themselves in the middle of some of the world's most stunning scenery courtesy of Ngai Tahu Tourism this February. For the second shoot in the 360 series they found themselves on the Dart River Wilderness Jet which propels you down from Paradise (yes that is a place) to the middle of beautiful nowhere along the Dart River.

From there they ventured out in Funyaks to explore the rock pools and waterfalls of the area while paddling themselves back to Paradise. All of this was captured on the 360 rig which ARL has custom built for this purpose. The specialised filming technique and equipment has been developed to allow the viewer to become totally enveloped by the scenery and adventure of Ngai Tahu's experiences.

Golf tracking in the Middle East

07 Feb 2016
At the start of 2016 the golf team spent three weeks in the Middle East. It’s always a culture shock for the boys and the golf often competes with the camel riding, dune bashing, and late night shenanigans. The tournaments all went really well and the training of the new operator, Reece Witters, was completed. The team worked in Abu Dhabi, Doha and Dubai over the three weeks and spent time with ball-tracking company ProTracer to integrate the virtual world with the 3D ball tracks.
