PIXELDUST STUDIOS CREATES MOVING IN-SHOW ANIMATIONS FOR NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC CHANNEL’S UPCOMING SEVEN-HOUR HD GLOBAL TELEVISION EVENT “GREAT MIGRATIONS”

Regarding the contributions of Pixeldust Studios to this project, Series Producer David Hamlin said, “Great Migrations features incredible tales of dramatic animal migrations, and we tasked Ricardo Andrade and Pixeldust Studios to provide us with a graphical depiction of animal movements around the planet that could mirror the stunning visuals in the film. The end product is highly artistic, informative and dramatic, and adds to the stories we are trying to tell.” “Pixeldust’s CGI challenge was to create an innovative, organic 3D environment that could blend flawlessly with the beauty and essence of the live action cinematography and narrative,” Mr. Andrade noted. “After weeks of research and experimentation, hundreds of migration paths were accurately| projected on a magically lit 3D animated Earth. The artistic camera moves and lighting we developed were a perfect complement to the epic musical cues and poetic narration depicted in this series. We are very proud to have worked with National Geographic Television on such a momentous and historic project.”
