UN: Growing a World Wonder

Client: UN

Growing a World Wonder is an African-led UN backed project with an epic ambition: to grow an 8,000km line of plants and trees across the entire African continent. Its goal is to provide food, jobs and a future for the millions of people who live in a region on the frontline of climate change.

Once completed it will be the largest man-made structure on Earth, and a new Wonder of the World.

As part of the campaign to raise awareness, Hello Charlie were asked to create CGI elements for a 360 VR film that would be launched at the 2015 Paris Climate Conference.

Using Maya and After Effects we worked on a sequence that would form the climax of the film. Within the unique 360 degree environment, the viewer would be transported from a live action high aerial drone shot through the atmosphere to a satellite perspective on the globe, and the first time we see the Great Green Wall in its entirety.
