In Conquest of the Skies, David Attenborough travels back in time to unravel the astonishing 300-million-year story of how these animals first appeared, and then evolved into the huge variety of aeronauts that fill our skies today. Only now, using the latest scientific analysis, can he reveal the hidden mechanics behind their gravity-defying skills. Ground-breaking new cameras, high speed filming and stunning CGI bring the viewer closer than ever to this astounding aerial world. From the steaming rainforests of Borneo to the frozen fossil beds of China, the arid canyons of Spain to the cloud forests of Ecuador, this series spans the globe to explore the thrilling and surprising story of how the flying animals came to conquer the skies.
ZOO completed over 100 native stereo 3D VFX shots and delivered at 4k. The CG creatures were the easy bit! The greatest challenge came from compositing mulitple Stereo 3d elements from various studio and location shoots.
Fantastic to be working with Sir David Attenborough again on this fascinating project.
