The Great Waka
Award-winning theatrical fulldome short animation, the third in the collection HOW IT WAS TOLD TO ME: Maori Legends from New Zealand.
This New Zealand Māori tale tells the story of how a fisherman, Tamareriti, created the Milky Way with all its constellations, and for the first time brought light to our Southern night skies.
Look up from The South Pacific, and you’ll see his Great Waka canoe travelling across the sky. Find out how the waka came to be there and how through the ages it has guided Polynesian sailors navigating the southern seas.
This theatrical fulldome animation was created by OHU Domes and features recordings of traditional Māori Instruments, and showcases high-end creative storytelling for full dome screens.
There are many versions of these stories stemming from different Iwi tribes of Aotearoa New Zealand.
These three short films were developed by OHU Domes for Stardome’s ‘Matariki Dawn’ show in Auckland, and feature recordings of traditional Māori instruments by Dr Richard Nunns, narration by Te Kohe Tuhaka, Tānea Heke, Rangimoana Taylor and sound design by Dylan Storey.
