Living Volcanoes

Visual Effects

Each and every 24 hours, 30 volcanoes erupt across the earth. These magnificent and terrifying wonders are both a danger to, and a source of life on our planet.

Moonraker collaborated with True to Nature on this enlightening story, telling the fascinating truth behind one the greatest natural phenomena of the world.

Using NASA data sets we developed an aesthetic to illustrate the sheer volume and significance of volcanoes on earth providing UHD shots that helped tell the story in a compelling way. We also created atmospheric shots showing the molten Hadean Earth as it was 4.6 billion years ago.
