Digitally created video clips shared as real visuals of giant aquatic creatures caught on camera

A video is being shared on social media claiming it as visuals of giant aquatic creatures caught on camera in an ocean. Let’s verify the claim made in the post.

Claim: Video of giant aquatic creatures caught on camera in an ocean.

Fact: The video shared in the post shows two different video clips that are digitally created using the Computer Graphic Imagery (CGI) technology. A 3D animator named Borisao Blois created these videos and published them on his different social media handles. The video does not show real visuals of giant aquatic creatures. Hence, the claim made in the post is FALSE. 

On reverse image search of the screenshots of the video, we could not find any reliable sources related to this video. On observing the video carefully, one could see watermarks of two TikTok profiles that are displayed at different time intervals on the video. When we searched for this video on these TikTok profiles, we found the same video clips in a TikTok profile named ‘borisao_blois’. They can be seen here and here. A description of one of these videos stated, “ The Great Maja has responded and moving south” (when translated from Spanish to English).  

Borisao Blois is a 3D animator who publishes animated videos related to sea creatures, robots and other concepts. Borisao Blois published the same videos on his Instagram and YouTube handles stating, “The day of the meeting has arrived… Several dozen underwater drones, an aerial team of helicopters, many cameras and hydrophones; everything is ready to capture the moment. The suspected battle is about to begin and the entire world is watching. The Bloop finally comes face to face with El Gran Majá and the tense atmosphere shakes everybody, shakes every breath”. In the description of one of the videos, he credited the music to ‘REPULSIVE-Virulence’. 

A few other CGI videos published by Borisao Blois can be seen here, here and here. From all these pieces of evidence, it can be concluded that the video shared in the post shows an animated video created by a 3D animator named Borisao Blois.

To sum it up, digitally created video clips are shared as the real visuals of giant aquatic creatures caught on camera.
