Aoraki, Mt Cook in 3D

17 Feb 2008

Local and international visitors to the new Sir Edmund Hillary Alpine Centre at Aoraki Mount Cook can now experience an unforgettable journey from the explosive Big Bang to the midst of the majestic Southern Alps, all without leaving the seats of its brand new 3D theatre. The spectacular 15min 3D film, takes the audience from the explosive beginnings of time, through the mystical Ngai Tahu Maori legend of Aoraki and on into the dramatic landscape of Aoraki Mt Cook. The film blends computer animation with stereoscopic footage to immerse the audience amongst the high peaks and glaciers of the Aoraki Mt Cook National Park in an inspiring 3D cinematic experience unlike any other.

The 3D project was a long time dream of Animation Research Limited CEO Ian Taylor - “This is a project I have been thinking about for a really long time, but without the vision and support of the Valentine and Davies families of The Hermitage, it could never have been achieved. We knew we could create the technology and had the people to make the vision a reality, but had no prior examples of this kind of work to show them. They backed the idea from the start and told us to go for it. That wouldn't happen anywhere else.” The Film was directed by Emmy Award winning cameraman Mike Single, the music was composed by highly regarded musician Neville Copland, and CGI post-production was done by the Video Factory in their dedicated 3D Stereoscopic edit suite.
