David Attenborough’s Conquest of the Skies 3D

The power of flight is one of nature’s greatest achievements.  From its humble beginnings, over one hundred billion creatures soar through the sky today, from tiny, nectar-drinking hummingbirds to armoured airborne beetles, bizarre winged lizards and sonar-guided bats hunting in the dead of night.

In Conquest of the Skies 3D, David Attenborough travels through time to unravel the astonishing, 300-million-year story of the flying animals.  Who were the first flying creatures, where did they evolve, and how did they adapt into the huge variety of aeronauts that fill our skies today?  Only now can he reveal the hidden mechanics behind their gravity-defying skills, using cutting-edge CGI, the very latest in high-resolution filming techniques, and pioneering scientific analysis.

Galapagos

The landmark 3D collaborations of David Attenborough and producer Anthony Geffen have already triumphed: from the BAFTA-winning Flying Monsters, to the stunning Bachelor King, and most recently the acclaimed Kingdom of Plants, an exploration of plant life as never seen before. Now comes Galapagos, first series from Colossus Productions, the newly-formed merging of trailblazers Atlantic Productions and Sky 3D. With this ground breaking series, Colossus has cemented its position as world leader in 3D.  Attenborough and Geffen have pushed this medium, its time-lapse techniques and technology to their limit, meeting the unprecedented challenges posed by the unique species and environments of the Galapagos. The series takes us on a voyage through the stunning archipelago that changed the way we see the world.

David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive 3d

In this stunning new project Attenborough takes us on a journey through the world-famous Natural History Museum in London, revealing it as it’s never been seen before, in a compelling tale of discovery, adventure and magic.  As the doors are locked and night falls, Attenborough meets the extinct creatures that fascinate him the most, as they magically come alive in front of his eyes; dinosaurs, ice age beasts and giant reptiles.   This is a special collaboration of experts and curators from the Natural History Museum with 3D and ground-breaking CGI technology.  Set within the spectacular Natural History Museum, this 90 minute film fulfils the dreams of the nation’s favourite naturalist.

Micro Monsters 3d

In this revolutionary new series, David Attenborough reveals the marvellous adaptability of the most successful group of animals on the planet. Using pioneering macroscopic 3D techniques, he explores in unparalleled detail the intricate, sophisticated behaviours of these fascinating creatures and the complexity of the environments they build and inhabit, in a world normally hidden from the human eye. From armies of killer ants to spiders weaving silken trap doors, ferocious scorpions with paralysing stings and beetles shooting boiling chemicals at their enemies, bees communicating with a waggle dance and assassin bugs that clothe themselves in their victims’ corpses; David Attenborough will – for the first time in stereoscopic 3D – take viewers deep into the macroscopic world of bugs.
