English Synopsis
To demonstrate the huge task the NZ Coastguard has finding vessels lost at sea, we capsized a boat, stranded 4 people in the ocean, and challenged New Zealand to find them, and save them, in a live-rescue event.Real-time ads drove people online to a search plane simulator in order for them to race against the clock to find the missing boaties. A GPS on the boat fed its location into the simulator, which also updated according to current weather conditions and the fading light. Volunteers soon realized they were faced with a hopeless situation – a feeling all too familiar to the Coastguard.
