VICTORIA THE T.REX

Victoria the T. Rex is a travelling exhibit of
a massive, 66 million year old Tyrannosaurs fossil,
which features an interactive media experience
created by Animism Studios.

Victoria Baby T.Rex

BABY

T.REX

T.Rex had feathers???

That's right, baby T.Rex was almost as cute as a baby duckling.
Working hand-in-hand with renowned paleontologists, Animism's assets team helped create the most accurate interpretation of what






these babies looked like.The latest evidence suggests; T. Rex had a covering of downy feathers as a baby, then shed most of these feathers as they matured.

Beginning with 3D scans of the
fossil, Animism then worked with
palaeontologists to conceptualize,
design and render a T. Rex based on
the current scientific evidence and theories.

The goal was to create a unique
dinosaur with “complex
patterns and colourful patches.”
Animism’s CG asset team set out to define how the audience
would perceive the creature.

PALEO-PLUMAGE

Adult tyrannosaursues may have been covered in complex feathers, much like modern birds. Since accuracy and realism were crucial to the project, Animism used Houdini FX software to create and simulate CG feathers complete with “quills” and “barbs”.

THE LOOK

LIVE
ACTION

Having direct access to the fossil itself, meant that
Animism had the opportunity to take its live action filming
crew out to the restoration lab and shoot all the footage
used in the exhibits introductory video.

ENVIRONMENTS

Animism’s CG environments team took on the challenge to recreate
South Dakota’s vegetation and landscape… from 66 million years ago.
The team used fossil records and incorporated the latest
scientific research to bring Victoria’s world into the digital age.
