TWA Flight 800 Animations

posted in: highlights, portfolio | 0

This is a short clip from the “TWA Flight 800″ documentary featuring animation from Aloe Design. For the map section, Aloe Design worked closely with the producers to translate original radar data into animation representing the exact flight path of TWA Flight 800. The witness point of view animations were created with direct input from the eyewitnesses. The closeup 3D animation of the plane emulates the look of the original NTSB animation of this event.

Aloe Design created all the animation in this clip. The video and audio segments are used with permission from the film’s producers.

This animation was created by Aloe Design for court case use. The video depicts a freshly set concrete structure having structural failure under its own weight. The structure had “crane lift anchors” placed too close to the edge of the structure (where it shows 6.5″ mark). This caused the concrete to break when too much load was placed on the anchors. It then fell and damaged the operator. The concrete was animated by a custom physics simulation which was created to match eyewitness accounts.
