    Story

    Prior to the 1955-58 Commonwealth Trans Antarctic Expedition (CTAE), led by explorers Sir Vivian Fuchs and Sir Edmund Hillary, no other expedition had ever successfully crossed the Antarctic via the South Pole.

    In keeping with the “Heroic Age” of exploration, part of the CTAE’s purpose was to carry out scientific research. This included seismic soundings and gravimetric readings, which were done as part of the International Geophysical Year. Along with a few other vehicles, the Tucker Sno-Cat was selected as the primary vehicle by Transport & Engineering Officer David Pratt, after hearing about the success Tucker had with the military during and after World War II. 

    Our Trans Antarctic Expedition Design Poster, part of our Extraordinary Vehicle series, took nearly 300 hours to produce and was custom designed in partnership with the Tucker Sno-Cat Corporation.

    UNIQUE PRODUCTION PROCESS

    Our expertise in CGI and 3D modelling means we can recreate and digitalize any moment from history. We spend many hours researching to be as accurate as possible, perfecting every single detail imaginable. With this, we’re able to use our highly detailed models to create animations, social media content, behind the scenes documentaries, and more – taking them beyond just being a piece of artwork.
