About the project
Norwegian oil and gas supplier Hydro constructed undersea pipeline to transport gas from a Norwegian undersea drill station to the UK mainland. Toxic was asked to produce animations and press material for this project, and I did some detailed 3D renders that they used to promote the pipeline around the world. Both the film and advert show an angler fish finding the huge pipeline and reading a plaque that tells him this is 'The Worlds Longest Subsea Pipeline'.
Hydro wanted the film screened across three plasma screens at a 6:1 ration. The above film is best viewed in full screen.
André Hitsřy built all the models and made the textures, and also did the animation. I was in charge of art direction, shaders, rendering and compositing.
