Kīlauea: Hawaiʻi on Fire

Believe Studio is a creative studio specialising in high-end 2D and 3D motion graphics, design, and animation. With a strong eye for design and visual storytelling, we produce bold, cinematic work for some of the world’s leading brands and agencies. We work on broadcast design, title sequences, full cg animations and more.



On this documentary for PBS Nova we worked closely with the director, scientific researchers and Atlantic Productions/ Zoo VFX to produce animations for this project, Kilauea: Hawai’i on Fire. It premiered in the US on PBS Nova, 23 January 2019.  The film is a blow-by-blow account of the dramatic eruption of the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island in May 2018. This epic film features on-the-ground and post-event interviews with the residents, emergency personnel and scientists directly involved.

We created animated maps, markers, lava flows and more to further the narrative of the documentary.
