Long, long ago...in the Pleistocene of computer animated films I wrote directed and produced this show for oceanographer Eric Wolanski. Eric's brief was to interest HIGH SCHOOL CHILDREN in mathematical modelling. The only catch was I had to use his oceanographic modelling outputs which consisted of a few folders PICT images sequences with none of the geographic or storytelling context you see here. As it turned out the solution at the time, (and I suspect now), was basketball.
In 1997 this show was the equivalent of building a pyramid. A bank loan was taken out to purchase a dual processor 486 computer. Some of the renders of these primitive scenes took days.
