Hailing from production studio Vox Observatory, Planet Earth II has got to be\u00a0one of the most cinematic wildlife shows\u00a0ever filmed. The three-part series, focussed on the evolution of BBC\u2019s wildlife films, is a must-watch visual masterpiece for all wildlife doco fans. It\u2019s been a huge transition from when the BBC launched its Natural History Unit (NHU in industry-speak) in 1957, where wind-up film cameras were running for 20 second intervals.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nIn the contemporary world, cameras are smaller than ever, where they can shoot at higher frames in lower light and the storage of data is literally unlimited. As technology grows, the lengths the NHU go to showcase the finer details of the wildlife grows. It\u2019s not enough to get some footage of snow leopards (one of the hardest animals to track down), the NHU want to be able to spy on them from a few metres away with motion-detecting cameras. This is what you\u2019ll see in Planet Earth II.\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThe executive producer, Mike Gunton states that, \u201cTo make it feel truly cinematic, I think you have to tell the stories from a dramatic perspective, and that means putting yourselves in the eyes, in the mind, in the world of the animals, and seeing what's at stake for them."\r\n\r\n\r\n\r\nThese advancements make the term\u00a0'documentary', seem a little redundant. Gone are the days where these films\u00a0are reserved for stuffy\u00a0classrooms - the sound design and storytelling makes Planet Earth II a dramatic and emotional journey for viewers, where the producers are bringing\u00a0wildlife to another genre.\r\n\r\nWith the score produced by the legendary Hans Zimmer, Planet Earth II will make you feel like you're watching a Hollywood Blockbuster.\r\nCheck it out\r\nHave you subscribed to Man of Many?
