Ive got a lot of work at the moment, but ocean simulation and bad weather always intrigues me, so Ill give it a shot.

Im gonna go for the ship, animating an offshore oilrig capsizing...

Shape of the hull is roughly outlined... I will be playing with ocean and the hull after dinner...

At the moment, the ocean is rather plain. Im using Mayas Ocean Shader for now, but Im thinking about using RealFlow for this project.

Story outline so far:

1. Camera follows close rusty anchor-chain from seabed up through water to oilrig. Chain breaks. Camera gets a hit by parts from chain, camshake.

2. Pan oilrig, as weather goes worse.

3. Close rig rail as waves and spray gets closer as the rig slowly tilts over to its side. Big wash of water over rail.
