"Chimelong Ocean Kingdom is widely regarded as a gamechanger, in terms of product quality, originality and as a proving ground for east-west collaboration."

Mediarific's team, led by creative director Jeff Cappleman and supervising animator Emerson Frota, created a full 11 minute 3D pre-visualization of the "Deep Sea Odyssey" dark ride attraction. This dark ride attraction actually passes in and around the massive, record breaking aquarium - unlike any other of it's kind in the world.
The pre-visualization went above what was expected and included full-color animatics of the media sequences, animated gobos with passenger activated interactive lighting effects, and simulated video of guests in the ride vehicle enjoying and interacting with ride elements.
"We started this project with a certain budget and a tight schedule. They were aware that the budget was not where it should be for the quality that was delivered. Jeff delivered and they were happy with the results....it was certainly above and beyond the budget, and the schedule, and on top of that - change after change after change
that our clients requested at the final hour. Jeff continued to come through with revisions and get us what we needed for our client.
We never worried about Jeff’s competency, reliability, and execution since we have had a working relationship with him for 14 years and know his excellent work ethic...
...Jeff is a pleasure to work with, he comes through when you wouldn't expect that he would."
