Antarctica – While You Were Sleeping

Joseph Michael’s a kiwi artist, filmmaker, and photographer with lofty dreams, plenty of patience and boundless energy for combining technology and art for the public to enjoy.

In 2015, Joe, a team of filmmakers, a sound recordist and various other intrepid folk headed down to Antarctica with the mildly complex goal of 3D mapping icebergs for their new project ‘Antarctica – while you were sleeping’. Four years of sweat, a myriad of technical challenges and probably some tears later the project finally came to life on the wall of the Auckland War Museum in New Zealand.

The Production Lamingtons series aims to show creatives in their natural habitat. It covers everything from equipment, planning, and creative direction, to alternative processes and gives insight into the workflow of filmmakers, photographers and other creatives who are pretty bloody great at what they do.
