A Year in the Life of the Bowhead Whale
a film by the UA Museum of the North
Our whale heroes may be 15 meters large, but their prey can be as small as a grain of rice. This week, we took one of our previously built open underwater environments and made a host of changes, including swimming inch-long krill models with better textures, some new experiments with underwater “fog” and camera rack-focus and motion blur, and topped it off with a statistical spectrum wave simulation which gives results that are about as real as it gets for simulated sea surface wind-driven waves.
