Recognition of Resilience

30 Oct 2020

Animation Research Ltd has been recognized for our resilience and ingenuity during the COVID19 pandemic, manifested in the successful pivoting of our services in growing relationships and business between the USA and New Zealand during 2020.

The 2020 AmCham - DHL Express Success & Resilience Innovation Awards recognized 6 New Zealand companies, including Animation Research Ltd. Our Sports Division 'Virtual Eye', was able build a new platform to continue covering PGA Tour Golf from our offices in Dunedin (where traditionally we deployed crews of up to 12 people to locations around the world) and also support Major League Baseball with the aid of state-side staff, once international travel became impossible.

Time Tripper

13 Jan 2020

Queenstown's Underwater World observatory has been turned into a virtual time machine called 'Time Tripper', telling the story of how New Zealand, and in particular Queenstown, came to be. Fossils that are millions of years old have been found in the Otago region, so 'Time Tripper' is no far-fetched fantasy.

Animation Research Limited was hired to create the vision for 'Time Tripper', transforming history into a brand new video experience. Says ARL Managing Director Ian Taylor, "I had this idea about the dinosaurs that were being found in the South Island and basically thought, what if we built a time machine. Take people back and show them dinosaurs".

The new attraction will service around three million visitors who make their way to Queenstown each year. Māori history, the formation of Lake Wakatipu and some unusual creatures, are all part of the new attraction bringing a different kind of thrill to the tourist hot spot.
