The Pender Harbour Ocean Discovery Station, PODS is an innovative new marine and freshwater research and education facility on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia. PODS will include a large aquarium, state-of–the-art laboratories, conference, performance, and community spaces as well as a restaurant.
This promotional film was produced from top to bottom by the Dendrite creative team after listening to the needs of the Ruby Lake Lagoon Society and the PODS team. Through an intimate understanding of the west coast, we were able to create this piece on an expedited timeline, working efficiently underwater, in the air and through the forests. PODS will be a game-changer for the community of Pender Harbour and we wanted to help them get off on the right foot.
