Symbolics Museum – CG Orca – Free Willy

Rather than train a real whale to leap to freedom in the open seas, VIFX inserts a CG whale between shots of animatronics for Free Willy. The CG orca was created with Symbolics software and hardware and rendered with RenderMan.

The Symbolics Lisp Machine Museum memorializes the Symbolics Lisp Machine (LispM) and the company that developed and manufactured it, Symbolics. Thank you for visiting.
