BANGALORE: Visvesvaraya Museum as a part of its ongoing endeavour to impart informal science education through entertainment, launched a new 3D film on Sunday at its 3D digital theatre facility at its premises. The film, titled ‘SOS Planet’, was an entertaining movie with stunning 3D visual effects that dealt with a serious topic of environmental crisis that planet Earth is confronting. The message of environmental crisis that planet Earth is facing was presented in an engaging way with a hope that the children and their parents, adults and school teachers would enjoy. But underneath the exhilarating 3D stunning effect was an important message, that the visitors could get, to be respectful to planet and take responsibility for it.
This film with dazzling digital and 3D effects was produced by nWave Pictures, a world leader in 3D film production, in partnership with the World Wide Fund for Nature. The film used computer-generated characters and animations in a way that audiences plunged into the core of some of the most serious environmental crises facing the Earth. The film drew the audience into three lush environments, with a blend of live action and animation, using computer-animated animals to graphically illustrate the dangers confronting each targeted region.
The film highlighted the fragile planet and its changing environment from a new perspective, from the chill of the Artic, to the depth of the ocean and to the thrill of the jungle. It took the viewers to the heart of the environmentally challenged areas of planet highlighting the cause and effect of three critically important environmental conditions the global warming, ocean habitat depletion or destruction and
The unique glimpse of several habitats reminded the audience that planet earth is the shared home of several interconnected species and by ensuring its health and diversity. People of all ages enjoyed the film.
The Digital 3D Theatre immersed viewers in a virtual world with 3D images. It had a high definition digital media server for the display of stereoscopic digital film. The theatre was equipped with two state-of-the-art digital video projectors, giving unparalleled colour fidelity and brightness to enable a vivid projection onto a 3.6 metre wide screen.
