BRIDGING SCIENCE AND ENVIRONMENTAL TOPICS TO THE PUBLIC
The Underground VFX is a multidisciplinary consortium of artists, scientists and technologists focused on communicating environmental and scientific topics to a wide audience. We artfully combine our experience from film, visual effects, virtual reality, and interactive media to create immersive content that allows the public to engage, be excited by, and more intelligently respond to the scientific and environmental issues that are shaping the world of the future.
VISUAL EFFECTS AND SCIENCE
With over 25 years of experience, we’ve been creating large-scale CG natural environments, cityscapes, massive dynamic cloudscapes, underwater scenes, and microbial animations for film, TV, museums, and private companies. By using computer generated tools and techniques from film and cinematography, we can depict scientific phenomena typically too large or too small, or happen too fast or too slow for people to comfortably grasp. Thus, extremely large and slow moving events like climate change, deforestation, landscape evolution, or even expansion of the universe, can be cinematically adapted into a time scale in which a non-scientist can identify with and understand. Equally true for events that are too small or too quick to see directly - we create clear yet visually rich depictions of cellular, molecular or even subatomic phenomena.
