Trailer for Rise Of The Continents

Those of you who aren’t Bots and actually pay attention to me on here might already know that for my actual job I make CGI for Television at BDH in Bristol.

Recently we worked on a landmark series for the BBC called Rise Of the Contintents, this involved visualising the unimaginable changes that have taken place on the Earth over hundreds of millions of years based  data generated by paleogeologists and satellite scanning.

This is a preview of show featuring the presenter Iain Stewart (Professor of Geoscience Communication at Plymouth University), leaping, fully clothed, into the top of the Victoria Falls, free as a lamb in springtime. This sequence contains no, I repeat no, CGI.

The series has already aired in the States and here is a link a trailer for that version, which does contain some of the work we did.

The series begins in the UK at 9pm, Sunday 9th June. (ie tomorrow).

As you were.
