Mohawk Media were approached to create an animation in English & Te Reo Māori as part of a series celebrating the 150 year anniversary of the Royal Society Te Apārangi in New Zealand.

We transformed archived images into three-dimensional dioramas with dynamic text overlays and a timeline to create a historical universe to fly through with English and Te Reo Māori versions.

One of the big challenges here was the quality of the available archived images. Many were old, damaged photographs, or low-resolution sources from old scans.

The Mohawk Media production team had to use every trick in the digital media toolbox to turn these into clean, high-quality images for use in the animation.
