Return from the Pole – Animated Feature – AMNH 2010

This animated feature was developed as part of the exhibition “Race to the End of the Earth” at the American Museum of Natural History and narrates the story of the conquest of the South Pole in 1911. The video narrates the story of the last days of four British explorers who, after loosing the race to the Norwegian team and confronted with weeks of snow storms, found slow and solitary deaths. The narration is set to the last entries of Robert Scott’s diary, found months later by a rescue mission. The animations are based on hundred-yeal-old original illustrations published in “The Sphere” newspaper.
