We were asked by Circle Square to create a stormy sea and barrel wave to use as the backdrop

of a window display for a well known whisky brand.

We decided that the Bifrost plug-in for Maya would give us the flexibility and control we needed to 

to create a simulation that eventually consisted of upwards of five million particles. With the final simulation taking ten hours to simulate, it became major challenge to finesse the movement of the wave within the short deadline. 

To complete the sequence, a range of effects were added in post production including the clouds, rain, mist, lightning and water droplets on the camera lens. The final animation was then completed in-house at Circle Square who added the bottle and other brand elements.
