Colossal Squid

05 Jul 2010

The mere mention of the Colossal Squid conjures up images of a fierce sea monster toiling with a doomed fishing vessel. Little was known about this mysterious and elusive creature until, in 2007, the largest recorded specimen was captured by a New Zealand fishing boat off Antarctica. Using the knowledge gained while studying this captured creature, ARL were asked to create a 5 minute animation using stereoscopic 3D technology to immerse the viewer in the mysterious world inhabited by the colossal squid.

Search and Destroy

30 Jun 2010

Using real data gathered from a digital tag (D-tag), a device used to study whales underwater and gather sound data, we created a 5 minute animation for Te Papa Tongarewa showing what a Sperm whale actually does when he leaves the surface of the ocean. We worked closely with a team of marine biologists to make sure we were recreating an accurate depiction of not only the whales dive but the environment and other sea life that he would encounter on his way.
