Taiwan-born Lee Ang had his latest 3D film production- Life of Pi filmed in his homeland, Taiwan. Most of the imageries were computer-generated for special audiovisual effects. However, 75 percent of Life of Pi was filmed at various Taiwan destinations including the main scene of the Pacific Ocean and its waves created by a specially designed wave-generating pool built by the film crews at the former Taichung Shuinan Airport, the exotic floating island during Pi’s journey at Pingtung Banyan Park, the Mexican beach at Kenting Baisha Bay, as well as the animals from Taipei City Zoo includes rhinoceros, lemurs and a Taiwan native Formosan black bear.

Now, an exhibition which displays props from the movie Life of Pi, interactive installations and 3D images, is held at the National Museum of Natural Science in Taichung. There is also an educational component on how to survive at sea.
