3D Animated Short Documentary: Drain the Ocean, Terragen 2, Maya


i-drain-the-ocean-documentary-bbc-terragen2422 VFX and animation studio produced an impressive sequence of landscapes emerging in every place of the globe. Using the procedural modeling of Terragen 2, just released, and a combination of real topographic data the artists, sculptors, matte painters and compositors at 422 created an astounding simulation of a total terraforming of the Earth.

Drain the Ocean, directed by Steve Nicholls will be shown in 2009 on National Geographic Channel

    Couldn’t believe my ears~

    I congratulate Steve Nicholls and the team on their great “Drain the Oceans” presentation…Sunday August 9, 2009.

    The logical sequence – ending with the subduction trenches was a good conclusion to a well-done piece.

    The part I found hard to believe was – National Geographic—having become the feminized politically-correct POS it has become in the last 20-years, failed to blame white, heterosexual males for ANYthing!!! – Was this a breakthrough to a long-needed turn-around towards what the Grovsner family had brought the world? …or was it an oversight?

    I guess – as the Discovery group always does, boilerplate condemnation of this minority’s destruction of the planet will be edited into future showings if the chosen classes complain.

    larry you should see in the 3d animation world. They only hire white people and only hire enough minorities so that they won’t file some kind of racist slander. I have only seen a few companies that actually love diversity.
