Wonders of the Arctic

Wonders of the Arctic centers on an ongoing mission to explore and come to terms with the Arctic, and the compelling stories of the many forays into this captivating place. Underlying all these tales is the crucial role that ice plays in the northern environment and the changes that are quickly overtaking the people and animals who have adapted to this land of ice and snow. (Run Time: 20 minutes)

Great White Shark

Misrepresented, maligned and on the verge of extinction, the great white shark is an iconic predator: the creature we love to fear. Great White Shark will explore the great white’s place in our imagination, in our fears and in the reality of its role at the top of the oceanic food chain. (Run Time: 20 minutes)

Sea Monsters, A Prehistoric Adventure

When strange bones are discovered in a muddy Kansas river bank, paleontologists set out to investigate a mystery buried in time. Through photorealistic animation, we travel back to the Late Cretaceous period, when the sea was dominated by giant marine reptiles, some as large as present-day whales. Go back in time to join one of these incredible sea monsters on her journey from the safety of life in the shallows to the center of the action in the most dangerous seas in history. (Run Time: 40 minutes) (Recommended for those at least 8 years of age.)

Tiny Giants

In an adventure of giant proportions, Tiny Giants 3D reveals the astonishing lives of the smallest of animals. Using the incredibly immersive power of specialist 3D cameras, audiences will be transported in
a very intimate way into another world and experience the titanic battles these creatures face to survive. A chipmunk in a wild wood and a scorpion mouse in Arizona’s scorched deserts are both forced to grow up fast when they find themselves alone for the first time. Facing experienced rivals and huge predators, our chipmunk hero must find courage to gather enough nuts for winter. Forced out of the family home, our adolescent scorpion mouse is then swept away in a flash flood. He needs to learn the skills to survive and lay claim to his own patch of desert as he becomes an adult. Only by using their ingenious ‘superpowers’ can our heroes not only stay alive but also become masters of their universe. (Run Time: 20 minutes)
