Mexico's Cenotes
Exhibit Animation

This animation depicts how cenotes, water-filled sinkholes, are formed in the Mexican Yucatán peninsula over hundreds of thousands of years from glacial erosion. Displayed on a mounted TV screen next to the Vancouver Aquarium’s exhibit on Mexico’s Cenotes in the Tropics Gallery, the animation was created for visiting aquarium guests.

 

Provided with a script from the client, I drew the storyboards, designed the visual assets, animated, composited and rendered the final animation.
