True to Nature is in production on Predators In Action (w/t), a new wildlife series for National Geographic International, produced by the Bristol-based indie, in association with ITV Studios.
The six-part series will follow the fortunes of some of the world’s most formidable apex predators, including leopards, grey wolves and crocodiles, focusing on their high-stake hunts and the multitude of factors that contribute to their success or failure.
Combining premium specialist archive footage and innovative new VFX techniques, each episode will feature a diﬀerent species and reveal ‘moment by moment’ the predatory features that are essential to overcoming the challenges to survive their world.
To bring to life these predator-prey interactions, a new 3D-graphics game engine will be used to freeze and showcase pivotal predatory events from multiple angles. These killer moments will explore hidden perspectives, biology and behaviour, all based on the latest scientiﬁc research, providing an immersive, analytical and comprehensive view of life as a top predator in the most dramatic of ways.
The series has been commissioned by Sarah Peat for National Geographic International. The Executive Producer for True To Nature is Wendy Darke and the Series Producer is Adam Oldroyd. Post production and VFXs will be provided by Doghouse Post Production. ITV Studios will handle international distribution of the series.
The creative ambition for Predators In Action (w/t) is to reveal brand new perspectives and insights into the animal kingdom’s most proliﬁc and iconic hunters in action.
Wendy Darke, Executive Producer, True To Nature said: “It’s great to be partnering with National Geographic International and ITV Studios for the ﬁrst time on an innovative new approach, gaining fresh insights into predators in action and the attributes, skills and behaviour that give them an edge, most of the time, in the competitive natural world scenarios of predator vs prey.”
Adam Oldroyd, Series Producer says: “Predators In Action (w/t) oﬀers an exciting opportunity to combine the latest VFX and game engine technology with some of the world’s best natural history footage and examine these incredible predators from an entirely new perspective.”
