ONE LIFE, up close and personal now at the movies
The producers say ONE LIFE is unlike any other natural history documentary.
The say, "using specially developed filming techniques we’re able to show animals at critical moments in their lives."
"Whether it’s a mother protecting her newborn baby seal pup, the tongue of a chameleon capturing its prey or grebes dancing across a lake ONE LIFE shows how life has answered the challenges faced by each of these living things."
The producers say the approach is high in drama, wonderfully intimate and unashamedly emotional.
"There are moments to make you gasp in awe, stare in wonder, laugh and cry."
As a feature film "we’ve put together different stories which, when combined, reveal key themes of life showing what an incredible force life is on our planet."
"Presenting this amazing footage on the big screen has allowed us to show astonishing sights - you will see intimate details such as a frog, no bigger than a human fingernail shown up close on a cinema screen many metres high; the biggest fight in nature between ten 40 tonne humpback whales battling for supremacy, an epic scene done justice on the big screen."
To accompany this George Fenton has created a beautiful musical score composed of different elements to reflect the creatures that we see.
"We’ve had the great good fortune to have Daniel Craig work with us as a narrator lending his voice to our new feature length narrative."
"The cinema offers us a chance to offer audiences an immersive experience, using cinema surround sound to make it feel as though you’re there with the animals; you will feel the air reverberating when the silverback gorilla beats his chest!"
One Life opens at cinema's Friday 20 April.
