In this animation Studio Mitchell have created a realistic 3D virtual sea scape with a 3D modelled motor yacht passing by.
As the boat passes through the water it creates a bow wave and even a 3D wake. Other details are the red ensign waving in the wind, all achieved in 3D.
Marine film footage can be extremely costly, sometimes requiring both aerial and ocean based crews. However with 3D animation and visualisation marine projects whether it's a boat. ship or even an oil rig; can now be presented pre-build and to a tight budget.
