3D Explainer and Safety Visualization Videos

USNC approached Deep Sky to produce a series of videos that promote and explain their state-of-the-art technology, which is setting the new standard for nuclear safety. The project consisted of one video demonstrating the Lifecycle—showcasing how nuclear energy is a safe, environmentally-responsible solution to the problems of climate change—and another video showing their Standard for Safety.

The most important shots were safety-related, conveying the precautions that prevent environmental catastrophe by emphasizing the way reactor heat dissipates into the ground and the safe storage of used reactors. A simulation to demonstrate the MMR's ability to withstand natural disasters required us to simultaneously show both above- and below-ground facilities. Because its particular details make water so difficult to simulate—namely, the tiny size of fluid particles—our team rendered a destructive tidal wave that would adequately show the facility's capabilities.

In order to demonstrate that the MMR was capable of powering an entire town with a population of 5,000, we had to digitally create the town. Building a complete environment is always challenging, particularly when scientific accuracy is so important and the environment needs to be adaptable so it can change during a simulation. We constructed the environment around the established camera movements, depending on whether the shot required a 3/4 angle, wide-angle zoom-out, or a close zoom-in for a fly-through shot.

The main goal of these videos was to be informative and scientifically-accurate. Using detailed environment modeling, complex VFX, and hyper-realistic simulations, we were able to convey USNC's priority of safety while highlighting their state-of-the-art technology.

USNC | MMR FARM (Timelapse)

USNC | MMR FARM (Timelapse)
3D Visualization, 3D Animation, Motion Graphics

MMR® is like a carbon-free natural gas powerplant. It can match changing demand and make up for intermittent renewable power supply. As the sun sets or the wind slows down, the MMR® Energy System picks up the slack ensuring demand is always met. No interruptions. No excuses. No carbon. Ultra Farms include MMR® units, wind and solar assets to minimize electricity cost while meeting 100% of demand.
