Fiordland Link Experience

22 May 2007

When Infinity Group approached ARL to produce a 6min promotional film for their latest project, they knew we had the right mix of skills to help them out. Still in proposal stage, The Fiordland Link Experience is a new concept in tourism transport between Queenstown and Milford. The trip itself is an exciting alternative to the current congested drive. After a cruise across lake Whakatipu in an energy efficient Catamaran, purpose-built all-terrain vehicles take back country roads to Kiwi Burn where they connect with an electric monorail system. The monorail travels through to Te Anau Downs where passengers catch the bus for the final leg through the tunnel and into Milford Sound.

Our 'one-stop-shop' approach saw the scenic beauty of the area captured from the air using Peter Thompson and Aeroptics gyro stabilised HDTV helicopter camera system and the stunning footage back on land shot by our very own Graham McArthur (from sister company The Video Factory). The CG animation components were worked on by the team at ARL, working from CAD drawings, maps, sketches and reference material to create photo real imagery, complete with reflections in train and bus windows and wake splashing against the bow of the Cat.   The music score, sound design, narration and multiple reproductions for distribution were all produced by The Video Factory. The project came together seamlessly and the result was a stunning film to assist Infinity in their consent and consultation process.

Dunedin Stadium

21 Mar 2007

When Arrow International asked ARL to bring to life the proposal for the new Dunedin multi-purpose Sports Stadium we were delighted to help. Working from aerial photos of the harbourside location, combined with architectural plans from HBK sports architecture, a 3D scene was modeled. Cameras were then set up on the periphery of the scene and still shots taken from various angles. Shots then needed to be re-touched in CG; brightening the autumn light, creating landscaping and trees and then adding reflections in the windows and water. The resulting representation of the proposed stadium aided in both the public and council consent & consultation process.
