LONDON, UK (Jun. 17, 2014) – The world premiere of David Attenborough’s 3D Journey will be shown daily at the CLiMAX Dome on state-of-the-art Ultra-D™ glasses-free 3D screens from Stream TV Networks in the Greenpeace field at this year’s Glastonbury Festival (25th – 29th June).
This exclusive event includes previously unseen footage, behind the scenes material and spectacular clips from his new films, telling the story of seven unique projects where Atlantic Productions, award-winning naturalist Sir David Attenborough and Sky 3D have collaborated to push the boundaries of filmmaking.
“I’m delighted that our collaboration with David Attenborough can be shown to the Glastonbury audience on this exciting new glasses free 3D television”, comments Anthony Geffen, CEO of Atlantic Productions.
“We are thrilled that our Ultra-D glasses-free 3D technology will be used to showcase Sir Attenborough’s incredible 3D productions for the quarter million leading-edge music fans attending this year’s Glastonbury Festival,” said Stream TV Networks CEO, Mathu Rajan. “By creating an experience that captures the enthusiasm of festival goers, we hope to help raise awareness of Greenpeace and its many worthy causes.”
Landmark 3D films produced by Atlantic include: the BAFTA-winning film telling the story of the pterosaurs – Flying Monsters 3D, the extraordinary narrative of an adolescent penguin set amongst the dramatic penguin colony of South Georgia; Penguin King 3D and the award-winning series Kingdom of Plants 3D – which uses macroscopic techniques to reveal the hidden and fascinating world of plants.
Colossus productions’ (a joint venture between Atlantic & Sky 3D) recent successes include: Galapagos 3D, exploring the unique species and environments of the archipelago, the award-winning series Micro Monsters 3D using the latest macro camera technology to show previously unseen world of insects and bugs. Colossus Productions’ latest film, David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive, uses cutting-edge CGI to bring David’s favorite extinct creatures back to life, and won the BAFTA for Specialist Factual last month.

Over the last five years, he has worked with producer Anthony Geffen of Atlantic Productions, and together they have established themselves as world leaders in factual 4K and 3D documentaries.
