Animations & Simulations/ Oceanos

In 1991, the South African cruise ship Oceanos suffered a sea chest failure with 600 passengers and crew aboard. A relatively small problem with respect to the 492 foot long vessel, but would prove to be the beginning of a progressive flooding sequence that eventually overcame the ship and lead to the vessel’s sinking.

The client requested “schematic-style” computer animation sequences for their National Geographic Channel documentary production Oceanos: Cruise Ship Rescue. The animations developed consisted of a series of sequences that described the ships arrangement and equipment layout, ventilation and sewage system configuration and other concepts contributing to the ship’s sinking. The client asked that the animations have an “engineering” or “schematic” look to them in order to distinguish them visually from the realistic animations that where developed by a third party.
