Corals on the Great Barrier Reef spawn at the end of each year, a few nights after the full moons in November and December. BioQuest Studios teamed up with AIMS researchers at the National Sea Simulator to capture that magical moment.

It is a delightful sight, considering the Great Barrier Reef has suffered from two devastating, back-to-back bleaching events that wiped out a substantial percentage of coral cover. The fact that the survivors have reproduced gives a glimmer of hope for the future of the reef.

The BioQuest Studios team trialed their new motion control system and optics to make the event look as cinematic as possible. The results speak for themselves, generating an incredible amount of detail.
