IBC2011 Special Award
From time to time, IBC makes a special award to a project, a person or a programme which has gone the extra mile and achieved something truly remarkable. This year the IBC Special Award grew out of the judging process for the Innovation Awards.
Flying Monsters 3D with Sir David Attenborough was nominated, in the content creation category, for its post production on SGO Mistika at Onsight in London. Some of the judges, though, had the chance to see the complete programme and were hugely impressed by the way it uses technology to – literally – bring fossils to life. The stereoscopic 3D is a natural part of the creative process, putting computer generated pterosaurs into real environments seamlessly.
