Sony Pictures Imageworks’ “Surf’s Up” is one of the few animated movies I would recommend to anyone without a second thought. It was produced during the short time in the late 2000’s (2007 to be exact) when full CG-animated films were a field where fresh ideas met fantastic budgets. There’s a whole lot of interesting stuff about this movie, but probably the most groundbreaking technical aspect were the waves. Few films have since captured the feeling of a vast ocean and huge bodies of water. In this far too short video one can at least get a glimpse at how this was achieved.
