EMG-3D has co-produced a series of six 3D documentaries about the world’s largest forests: the ones in France’s overseas territories.
After the expedition to Guiana, EMG-3D now offers you the chance to discover the forests of Réunion, in 52 minutes of 3D.
Currently in post-production, this second episode in the series, directed by Olivier Chiabodo and co-produced with Lithium Productions, will be broadcast on Tuesday 20th March on Orange’s 3D TV channel, and in 2D on France Ô.
A team of ten people spent two weeks with the first 3D Sony TD300 cameras available in Europe.
The major advantage of these cameras is the dual focus optical system, which is as fast as using mirror rigs. This system also allows the left and right lenses operate in a perfectly synchronised way, with high-precision adjustment of the focusing, the zoom and the diaphragm. As the camera is fully integrated (as with the 2D model), the team was able to concentrate fully on the quality of the images and the 3D relief.
Until now, underwater 3D images have been rare, but EMG-3D has adapted a diving bell to allow the underwater world to be explored. Capable of reaching depths of almost 80 metres, this system allows 3D images to be recorded of underwater lava flows and the many species of coral that form the island’s marine ecosystem. This technological innovation allowed amazing results to be achieved!
> Tune in on 20th March to see in 3D the snowy peaks, lava flows and many other aspects of Réunion’s natural landscape on Orange.
> Broadcast on 15th October 2011, the first episode on French Guiana is still available in 3D on Dailymotion: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xmmadm_la-plus-grande-foret-du-monde-en-guyane-3d_creation
