NightSchool: How to Design a Coral Reef
How do you create a digital coral reef so large and complex it will fill a 75-ft. planetarium dome screen? Get a behind-the-scenes look into the creation of the Academy’s latest show, Expedition Reef, with production designer Mike Schmitt and animator Ken Ackermann—members of the Academy’s award-winning Visualization Studio—and underwater photographer and 3D modeler Yasmeen Smalley-Norman. Learn how they used cutting-edge computer graphics and techniques to create a photorealistic, scientifically accurate coral reef ready for its close-up.
