February 22, 2011, Christchurch was struck by a powerful 6.3 magnitude earthquake killing 185. In honor of the victims and heroes of that day, a memorial was built along the banks of the Avon River.

Presented with an open brief, I was tasked with creating an animation to show the public the design elements of the memorial. Realising the visual importance of the vibrant maple trees, I set to learning Speedtree to implement a realistic animated result.
