Mind Of A Giant gets to the heart of what it is like to be a modern elephant surviving in a world of poachers, new human settlements and other dangers, as revealed by revolutionary new research. Together with the top elephant scientists in the world, we learn that elephants are smarter than we ever knew before.
Holey and Moley were commissioned to design the identity, apply special effects and create accurate scientific animations for this award-winning feature film. Commissioned by Off the Fence Productions, the feature film recently scooped the best science film at the International Elephant Film Festival, and is fast gaining further recognition and nominations across the globe. Holey & Moley produced over 20 shots for this Ultra HD Feature Film, from accurate 3D scientific representations of the Elephants brain and anatomy to 3D topographic survey maps and cognitive representations of GPS tracking data.
A wide variety of graphic techniques were used to infuse science and data to represent diverse visualisation from 330º ‘Elevision’ to ‘Thunderstorm Sensory Weather Perception’. Always in-keeping with uncompromised empathy and a humble respect for these marvellous giants.
