DINOSAURS OF ANTARCTICA Wins Big at GSCA Films Awards

WINNER! 

BEST FILM

BEST VISUAL EFFECTS

GSF is honored and thrilled to have received the GSCA Film Awards for Best Film and Best Visual Effects!

We want to acknowledge the tremendous production and logistical support provided by the National Science Foundation, as well as the expertise and creativity of our science advisers, who helped us tell the story of their incredible research. Many thanks as well to our partners in New Zealand, without whom the film’s stunning prehistoric locations would not have been discovered or accessed.

“We owe a very special thanks to BUF Visual Effects and JF Tremblay – whose VFX team brought a very eclectic cast of prehistoric beasts to life, with extreme scientific rigor and oversight by dozens of academic advisors,” said Don Kempf, President and Founder of GSF. “Thanks to our director Dave Clark, and to our producing/writing team of Andy Wood and Deborah Raksany, our line producer Rob Grzymala, and to our director of photography Reed Smoot. Huge thanks to our post-production maestro, Rick Gordon and to Brian Eimer for the amazing and otherworldly soundscapes and mix. Our composer Cody Westheimer delivered a truly evocative score. Fotokem and Legend provided their usual post wizardry.”

We are grateful to our many education and outreach partners and to Discovery Place for the development of our educator’s guide. We also appreciate our many leasing museums, a list that has grown to over 80 markets worldwide. Despite the challenges of the past couple of years, the feedback and performance metrics from the film’s runs so far have been spectacular. Lastly, we appreciate the GSCA voters for this wonderful recognition!

ABOUT THE FILM

From the Permian through the Jurassic, journey to the south polar landscapes of Antarctica hundreds of millions of years ago. Roam the primitive forest and thick swamps with bizarre dinosaurs and colossal amphibians. Enter a surreal world of bug-eyed giants and egg-laying mammals – where survival means enduring the sunless, six-month polar winter surrounded by meat-eaters with night vision. Join intrepid Antarctic scientists on a quest to understand the ice continent’s profound transformation over deep time — investigating the parallels and differences between prehistoric climate events and human-triggered warming today.

Welcome to the lost prehistoric world of Gondwana…
