Default David Attenborough's Conquest of the Skies 3D

David Attenborough's Conquest of the Skies 3D

David Attenborough embarks on an extraordinary journey to unravel one of nature s most gripping stories the evolution of flying animals. The power of flight is one of the greatest miracles of nature. Over one hundred billion creatures soar through the air today - from nectar-drinking hummingbirds, to armoured airborne beetles; from bats hunting in the black of night, to bizarre winged lizards.

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 3D 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.

ONSIGHT is the proud provider of cameras and picture post in 4K, HD, 3D and 2D for Colossus Productions’ new landmark series Conquest of the Skies (3D) - the facility’s seventh David Attenborough collaboration with Atlantic Productions and Sky.

The Post division designed a 4K workflow and oversaw the media management, based on a variety of camera formats, including the Epic as provided by ONSIGHT's camera team. There was also a mixture of shooting techniques, such as a 3D-Epic equipped Octocopter by Digital Cinema Films with R&D from ONSIGHT. This captured incredible aerial footage in Borneo and the UK’s Fenland. The camera division also provided a wide range of innovative 3D systems.

ONSIGHT later facilitated plate preparations, DI, VFX, conform, QC as well as mastering and deliverables. This included the ability to screen the 4K masters, combining 5K live action with 4K VFX and CGI from Zoo VFX. Senior Colourist Andy Lee maximised the flexibility of SGO Mistika by switching between the colour grade, depth grade and VFX conform. VFX Stereo Artist Miguel Caamano Riveiro supported the project with stereo corrections and compositing.

In this fascinating series, David Attenborough tells the evolutionary story of flight from the first insects to the vast array of creatures in the skies today.

Conquest of the Skies premieres on Sky 3D and Sky 1 HD on New Year’s Day 2015 with Episodes 2 and 3 continuing on 8 and 15 January respectively, followed by a special making of film. Watch the extended trailer and visit the series' official website here.

Probably not. Many of the other Sky3D Blu-rays are noted as region B on Amazon.uk, but are in fact region free. I can probably let you know when it comes out. Most likely I will order this.

Would you mind letting me know what specific ones you are aware of that are listed as region B, but are in fact, region free. Definitely interested in these.

Box collection? Have a specific link?

FYI: Also tested the U.S.A. edition of Flying Monsters 3D with David Attenborough and find it to be Region-free.

LINK They are all the same discs. However at this time it appears that Amazon is out of stock so is replacing with another seller and cannot be shipped to the US.

Weird, works for me. For some reason Amazon.uk and Amazon.com will list items that are identical and available from Amazon or other sellers separately. It also seems it is easier to find the ones not sold by Amazon.

Same here.



The lower purchase price to import to the U.S. always surprises me because they (Amazon.co.uk) subtract the VAT cost from the gross retail price.

So when it cost's £14.00 for a UK customer who has free shipping, it is reduced to £11.67 for a U.S. customer import and then £3.08 is added for the international shipping charge = £14.75 total. That's only £0.75 total difference from the posted price for shipping to the U.S or a $1.15 UnitedStatesDollars to ship to my home.

My order just shipped. Unfortunately, it seems that the international shipping has been REALLY slow lately. The last thing I ordered from Amazon UK took over two weeks, It used to take only about a week, sometimes less. The last order I placed with Amazon.de took almost a month! Could be the weather, I guess.
