Kingdom of Plants 3D takes an intriguing look at the secret lives of plants. This new major 3-part series, as previously announced by Atlantic Productions and Sky 3D, will be broadcasted in May 2012. ONSIGHT is delighted to have been working with both companies on a third project, presented again by Sir David Attenborough.
Filmed over a year at London’s Royal Botanic Gardens, ONSIGHT’s rental facilities provided cutting-edge technology, including 3D time-lapse and macro photography. The project was later passed to ONSIGHT’s Lab & Post team for stereoscopic finishing.
Anthony Geffen, Executive Producer and CEO of Atlantic Productions adds: “Having already worked together on two 3D films, David and I were keen to really push the technological boundaries in macro. So when the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew suggested working together to create a film, it seemed a perfect fit. With David’s passion for plants, and one of the largest botanical collections in the world in which to film, we were able to push the 3D technology to capture the lives of plants like never before.”
John Cassy, Director, Sky 3D, comments: “The combination of ground-breaking technology, high quality production, fascinating subject matter and captivating narrative from the master story teller himself ensures that KINGDOM OF PLANTS 3D is at once an immersive, compelling and truly breath-taking viewing experience which we’re thrilled to offer exclusively to Sky customers.”
Kingdom of Plants 3D will be showing on Sky 3D and simulcast in 2D on Sky Atlantic HD. Watch the trailer below.
