Our Ocean Conference 2016

Since 2013, John Kerry has held a conference for global leaders on the key issues facing Earth’s oceans with a plan to commit to actions to protect the world’s waters.

In 2016, for its media presentations, the conference employed a single, seamless screen that spanned 3 walls for a total length of 180 ft. To make the opening of the conference both memorable and inspiring, the goal was to create a film that transformed 16×9 footage into seamless 18×1 images that would submerge the viewer in beautiful, full-screen, underwater landscapes. Above is the resulting 6-minute film showcasing the ocean’s beauty as well as the issues threatening its survival.
