We congratulate Atlantic Productions and the teams involved in creating another stunning documentary – The Bachelor King 3D with David Attenborough. The project started some time ago and tells the story of a King Penguin’s life struggles and successes in the remote Sub-Antarctic.
Shot on location in South Georgia, ONSIGHT embraced the challenge of designing a bespoke workflow and a compliment of equipment to suit the enormously challenging conditions. The Camera Rental department supplied cameras and accessories plus skilled crew. RED Ones and SI-2Ks were selected using 3Ality Technica Quasar and Neutron rigs for quality, flexibility and reliability the project required. Combined with Ultra Prime and Optimo DP lenses, the penguins’ world was filmed over 5 months. The small 3D crew, including DoP Paul Williams, were not short of roles or experiences as the shoot unfolded.

Producing a CGI doc about extinct creatures that would be fit for both the TV screen and Imax took a lot of work and planning, says Anthony Geffen, Producer and CEO of Atlantic Productions.
When Sir David Attenborough and I sat down at the end of a day’s shooting in the Canadian Rockies, we had no idea what it would lead to. David has a fascination with pterosaurs and we began talking about bringing them back to life using CGI, based on the latest research. Then we came up with the idea of telling the story in 3D. A bottle of wine later, we were imagining these giant creatures flying around the Red Pig Tavern.
