On the green slopes of giant volcanoes lives Microraptor. Not a bird, nor a normal dinosaur: with four wings, this small, feathered dinosaur glides between trees in search of lizards or insects to feed its young. Being tiny exposes it to various threats from its neighbours: on the ground, Sinosauropteryx – a squirrel version of Velociraptor – and the massive Yutyranus – a sort of feathered T-Rex – roam in search of dinner. Highly exposed on the ground, Microraptor can only climb trees to escape. Its neighbours have other strategies: primitive mammals rely on dens to hide in and poisonous heel spurs to inflict deadly wounds; coloured Caudipteryx – a peacock version of a small Velociraptor – or “Pyjama raptor” – another fluffy raptor – have to run through the maze of trees to confuse their predators. Every minute, Microraptor battles to survive: Darwinopterus pterosaurs attack through the canopy, winter brings snow and volcanoes spew deadly clouds of ashes. Will Microraptor thrive long enough to give its chicks a chance to flee and venture out of their nest?
A lone climber, suspended hundreds of feet in the air, struggles to find the next finger hold, defining progress in inches. The dramatic visuals immerse us in a gripping contest of human determination versus the reality of gravity’s potent grip. CLIFFHANGERS explores the precarious relationship of humanity’s quest to scale some of the world’s highest places, while also revealing the scientific and technological advances that have enabled us to conquer these peaks, exposing the heartbeat of the human soul.
A tapestry of jaw-dropping action, combined with rich STEM content…..for example, physics of the real world – how climbing is a tug-of-war between friction and gravity, while skiing involves the same battle of forces in reverse. Educational insights about the engineering of climbing gear and skis, and the aeronautical effects of a wingsuit, are seamlessly integrated with dramatic visuals and action. The film will be narrated by Willem Dafoe and release early 2018.
Unique pictures from above. This documentary shows a different angle of people and country, during a glide flight above the metropolis.
25 years after the reunion between East and West Germany, this movie shows pictures from different perspectives. Which visions and dreams marked this region? What changed and what emerged from the city’s contentious history? We take a look from above to see the city and its citizens.
The movie unites nature, urbanity, tranquility and the rush of a metropolis. It unites parks and skyscraper canyons, lake capes and wetlands, curvy courses of rivers and straight streets. With exhilarating pictures we take a trip through Berlin- from sunrise til sunset.
Due to high quality flight recordings and panorama pictures, we are able to get a glimpse at how the people make this area their home.
A spectacular journey in Ultra HD cinema through the most remote and fascinating nature parks in Namibia, Africa, underlines the need to restore human contact with wildlife. Elephants, lions, leopards, giraffes, buffaloes, hippos and many other wild animals share the same biological and spiritual bond with nature as the human race, but growing pressure from the predatory behaviour of man and the spread of civilisation across the Planet is threatening their survival.
THE LAST WILD is a cry for the need to restore contact with and respect for nature and all the living things that inhabit it in order to build a new more positive and sustainable world.
The Last Wild film offers to the audience a touching cinematic experience discovering one of the remotest wild regions of Africa and promoting the need to preserve a more respectful relationship between humans and nature.
The film travels to the Western Kalahari region, in Namibia, inquiring about the spirit of the wild and the deep sense of the human condition as part of the nature cycle.
The Last Wild, a very high quality film shot in 4K resolution from the ground and from the air, joins spectacular pure wildlife images with a deep conservationist message and a very moving soundtrack.
Filmed in the remote Khaudum National Park and its surrounding area, and in the Kavango-Zambeze region that borders with Angola, Zambia and Botswana, capturing spectacular landscapes, meeting bushman tribes and finding herds of elephants and buffaloes, big cats, rhinos, hippos, crocodiles and many more wild animals.
The Last Wild spread out a very powerful conservationist message to the next generations, contained in a symphony of cinematic sensations, taking the audience to contemplate the ordinary rhythm of nature and wildlife without interferences, connecting with it, as it was part of it.
Enjoying The Last Wild film, the worldwide audience will experience an extraordinary adventure that connects human spirit with the spirit of wildlife.
Experience in riveting 4k, an immersive expedition in the most hostile and magic environment of the southern hemisphere and discover the survivors of the cold and trailblazers of Evolution… Following extreme diver and biologists Laurent Ballesta and acclaimed photographer Vincent Munnier, experience the hardships of one of the deepest dive ever made in the South Arctic and discover for the first time unexpected underwater oasis and a full scale Iceberg seen from below.
The African savanna is a place of raw beauty. It is also the setting for fierce battles between lions and hyenas. Tough and scraggly, hyenas are known as the “scavengers of the savanna.” They are intelligent predators who are a nuisance to the king of all beasts because they target the same prey. While lions display overwhelming power, the hyenas’ weapons are solidarity and teamwork, which they use to outwit their larger rivals. The standoffs between these carnivores can quickly escalate with hyena pups sometimes caught in the middle. Viewers get a front row seat as these animals use their size, strength, and smarts to compete for the top spot.
Some would consider the dwarf mongoose the cutest creature on the African savanna. Measuring 25 centimeters in length, they are actually the world’s smallest mongooses, living in a land with many predators. They survive by forming packs of about 20 members and observing unique social rules. In and around the anthills they call home, the mongooses follow a rigid hierarchy, where the lowest-ranking member of a pack is responsible for the most dangerous duties. Eating and sleeping are secondary to watching out for enemies and protecting the pack. Why do these animals risk their own lives to serve the other pack members? It is, in fact, all part of an ingenious master plan.
The glorious Chitwan National Park extends over the foothills of the Himalayas in Nepal. A large river fed by melted snow and monsoon rains runs through this World Heritage site, attracting endangered species such as Indian rhinoceroses and Indian elephants. Mingling among them are gharials, one of the world’s largest crocodiles. At six meters in length, the main feature of this conspicuous creature is its long, thin jaws filled with razor-sharp teeth. Gharials swish their jaws back and forth to catch fish with impeccable timing. Males also make an explosive sound when courting females. This episode, filmed over an extended period between the dry and rainy seasons, reveals the wisdom behind the secrets to their survival.
The Galapagos Islands are home to a treasure trove of creatures that have gone through unique evolutionary adaptations. One of the most extraordinary is the flightless cormorant, an endangered species. These birds can swim and hunt on water, but because their wings are so small, they are the only cormorants among 30 or so species in the world that cannot fly. Life on land is a series of challenges for them. The parents use their small wings to protect their young against the scorching sun and predators. However, once in the water, they are unbeatable. Using intricate moves, they display impeccable hunting skills. For the first time ever, cameras capture their tireless efforts to survive on a desolate, lava covered island.
