This filter was made to bring awareness to man's impact on our oceans. Our trash is not only killing our reefs but killing the wildlife that live and feed off it! Change the world by changing mindsets!
What it does
This filter brings the bottom of the Ocean into your space. The filter opens up to a reef that is polluted and it is your job to clean up the mess. Tap on the garbage to cleanup and watch the coral and environment come to life.
How I built it
This was built using SparkAR, 3ds Max and the Adobe suite.
Challenges I ran into
The biggest challenge was getting all the 3d objects in to make it feel alive. With only 4mb to work with we managed to fit a environment with a bunch range of animated characters. Using the patch editor to bring the interactive side but also use it to fade objects in and out.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
I am proud that we managed to make a beautiful effect and be able to make something for a good cause. Hopefully sharing this effect will help change mindsets.
What I learned
I have learned that you can make something interactive and engaging out of serious topics. I have learnt that this medium can be a powerful tool to bring awareness.
What's next for Ocean Cleanup
Hopefully we can get a organisation to allow us to publish it on their page and influence their community. Would be amazing to get people to donate to them through our interactive experience.
