The exquisite visual effects are a key element in the success of the THRIVE movie. The film continues to go viral, being passed word of mouth and hand to hand in families, workplaces, communities and networks in 25 languages around the planet.
The 3D animation and visual effects are the work of Goa Lobaugh and his team at liquidbuddha.studios. We have received messages of gratitude from healers, scientists, spiritual teachers, inventors, researchers, historians, children and more — thanking us for depicting the geometries of nature in a way that makes the invisible visible and honors its beauty.
Goa had a profound insight years ago that part of his calling this lifetime was to use computer graphics for the transformation of human consciousness at this critical time. That commitment, together with his understanding of geometry, was directed by our script and his own strong inner guidance to manage 1.8 million files and produce the result that has touched millions of hearts and minds in cultures worldwide.

In the process of creating these artistic masterpieces, Goa and his team also created a visual effects toolset that saves time and shares understanding for others wanting to represent nature’s fundamental patterning in virtual imagery. The toolkit includes fast creation of animated toroidal evolutionary wavefronts, phi-spiral vortices, jitterbugging vector-equlibriums and more! Now liquidbuddha.studios is generously making the “Cosmic Geometry Toolkit” available as an open-source project on GitHub. Interested artists, geometers and visual effects specialists can find out more about the toolkit.
Goa continues to work with Thrive as a Managing Director for ThriveConnect, and also supports new energy teams with 3D printing services and consultation.
The 2D animations in THRIVE were created by Michelle J. Enemark who works in Brooklyn, New York. Michele was the top choice in our nationwide search for the sort of skill and creativity that we needed to communicate challenging and vital information in an entertaining and memorable way.
Here is her “Making of THRIVE” reel:

We are forever grateful to Michelle and Goa for putting wind beneath our wings and inspiring us and over 23 million others.
