Winter, a dolphin at the the Clearwater Marine Aquarium, and subject of the movie “Dolphin Tale,” is a top attraction along with three other dolphin residents. CMA asked Provis to create an interactive experience to allow guests to meet each dolphin in an exhibit called “Meet the Pod.”
Provis provided extensive rotoscoping to isolate the dolphins, created a 3d scene with realistic background dolphins and reflections, and provided programming and technical consulting to ensure the exhibit would perform flawlessly.
Today, guests walk up to the 98” 4k monitor; press one of four mechanical buttons; and the chosen dolphin swims out to greet the guest. While the project was technically complex, the final exhibit is simple and elegant.
