Elephants
2024
40, 24

Elephants 3D is an epic journey across Africa, Asia, and Australia, getting up close and personal with the largest land mammals on the planet.  Elephants are symbols of strength, power, and wisdom, and they have captured our imaginations for centuries.

Sadly, most of the world’s elephants could disappear from much of the wild within a generation.  Climate change, habitat loss, human conflict, hunting and poaching have devastated elephant populations, estimated to be down from 1.2 million in the 1970’s to around 500,000 today.  But who are these species, how have they adapted to their unique ecosystems, and why must we protect them?

The film traverses the vast plains and rich rainforests of Africa that are home to the Savannah and Desert Elephants, to the grasslands of South East Asia and the Indian Elephants that live there, and finally, to Melbourne Zoo in Australia.  It’s in Australia that we meet Luk Chai, the elephant who is helping to secure the genetic future of his species.

The Wonderful World of Elephants 3D is not just an insight into the elephants themselves but the incredible and diverse environments they inhabit and the people protecting them and the future of their species.

Angkor: The Lost Empire of Cambodia
2021
39

A civilization that rose to become the envy of the world, only to disappear … a mystery waiting to be unlocked by modern archaeologists, scientists and explorers.

Following an epic spree of religious building whose scale and ambition rivals the pyramids of Egypt, Angkor is the scene of one of the greatest vanishing acts of all time.  The Khmer kingdom lasted from the 9th to the 15th centuries and at its height dominated a large swathe of South-East Asia from Myanmar to the west to Vietnam in the East.  As many as one million people lived in Angkor, the capital, which sprawled across an area the size of New York’s five boroughs, making it the most extensive urban complex of the pre-industrial world.  By the late 16th Century, the once resplendent capital of the empire, with its thousands of elaborate temples and religious monuments, was being overrun by the surrounding jungles.

Many experts have attempted to provide answers, and theories abound.  1300 carved inscriptions survive on temple doorjambs but the Khmer people of Angkor left not a single word explaining their kingdom’s collapse. This will be a visually stunning film … an epic adventure where science, mystery and ancient civilization intersect.

Australia’s Great Wild North
2018
41, 37, 25

Far Northern Australia is a land of extremes.  Huge bushfires ravage the ancient landscape in the dry season and the world’s biggest thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding in the wet season.  These almost Jurassic conditions have created some of the richest wetlands on Earth.

The coast, rivers, and waterholes are haunted by sharks.  The plains are guarded by territorial buffalo and venomous snakes but the apex predator here is a living dinosaur the salt water crocodile.  They have been on the planet in almost identical form for 200 million years – even surviving the meteor strike that wiped out the rest of the dinosaurs.

Crocodiles are the ultimate predators.  They attack with stealth, are extremely aggressive and can grow up to 7 meters in length.  Up here, they have even been known to attack and pull fisherman out of boats.

This film will carry the viewers across the whole Top End of Australia, from the wild Kimberly coast through mysterious and rarely seen Arnhem Land and then deep into the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape York.

Come with us on an epic journey through some of the wildest landscapes on Earth as we take you deep into crocodile’s world.  Australia’s Great Wild North will be shot in magnificent 8K for IMAX and other Giant Screen theaters.  Specialized underwater camera rigs have been designed to get the audience closer than ever before to the most powerful jaws on Earth.
