Little Monsters - Hide & Cheat - The Secrets of Nature
Presents some of the animal kingdom's strangest survival strategies. The most startling behaviour patterns aren't found among the classic big animals such as lions or polar bears, but among nature's smaller creatures: Poison dart frogs, chameleons, praying mantises and scorpions, to name only a few. These "Little Monsters" are masters of survival. Until recently, only a handful of scientists enjoyed the technical means to study them up close. But now, thanks to 3D visualization, large audiences can experience a chameleon thrusting out its tongue at close range, rattlesnakes striking at their targets to within fractions of an inch, praying mantises hunting and hummingbirds feeding, filmed from inside the flower! Rather than simply delivering a flat representation of these amazing stunts, modern 3D provides for an emotional experience. And with its ingenious combination of slow-motion-3D and timelapse-3D, "Little Monsters" even improves upon state of the art 3D for greater impact, yielding unbelievable scenes the world has never seen and "felt" before.
