NMM – Sea Observations
Beakus were asked by fimmaker Mike Paterson to create three unique videos for the National Maritime Museum's 'Old Weather' project. The aim is to promote the campaign to crowdsource volunteers to transcribe the weather recordings in hundreds of old ship's log books. The data will feed in and augment existing data of weather patterns through the ages, helping to build up a more reliable forecast for times ahead.
The three films we created are 'Crowdsourcing', 'Sea Observations' (seen here), and 'Weather Reconstructions'. We used a variety of styles and techniques from pared-back motion graphics to 3D CGI and motion-tracking.
In this movie we explain why measurements taken at sea are so useful in developing weather patterns across the globe and on land. Using a mix of 3D and 2D animation the info-graphics clearly illustrate our interviewees message.
