Fulfilling a lifelong dream of the nation’s favourite naturalist, David Attenborough‘s Natural History Museum Alive 3D is the result of a collaboration with the scientists of the Natural History Museum. Produced by a BAFTA and Emmy award-winning team, this film was shot in 3D by the same team behind Gravity with visual effects produced by a team whose combined credits include work on the Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings franchises.
Combining spectacular visuals with David Attenborough’s extraordinary insight and delightful interaction with these creatures offers viewers a captivating window into prehistory, as they join him on a unique and enchanting journey through time to discover how these animals once roamed the planet.
David Attenborough commented: “I have been coming to the Natural History Museum since I was a boy. It’s one of the great places to come to learn about natural history. In this film we have the technology to bring back to life some of the most romantic and extraordinary extinct creatures that can be conceived; some are relatively recent animals like the dodo, others older like the dinosaurs, and some we only know through fossil evidence. Using our current scientific knowledge, this film brings these creatures alive allowing me to look at some of the biggest questions surrounding them. I hope that it will make people think about these extinct creatures differently and bring the Museum to life in a new and exciting way.”
