Ocean Ranger Documentary

JMS completed work this past November on a computer animation project for CineNova Productions. The Ocean Ranger oilrig was lost with all 84 hands on February 15, 1982 to a violent Nor’easter in the Hibernia oil field off Newfoundland. JMS provided the documentary writers with technical advice and content review of the script as well as computer animation production. The engineering-style animations consisted of a series of sequences that visually described the oilrig’s design, construction, ballast system configuration and other concepts contributing to the rig’s sinking. The final production first aired internationally this past May on The National Geographic Channel.
