EMG-3D (Euro Media Group) has co-produced a series of 3D documentaries about the world's largest forests in French overseas territories and the second episode will allow viewers to explore the forest of Réunion in Guiana.
Currently in post-production, the second episode in the series, directed by Olivier Chiabodo and co-produced with Lithium Productions, will be broadcast on Tuesday 20th March on Orange’s 3D TV channel. A team of ten people spent two weeks with the first 3D Sony TD300 cameras available in Europe.
According to EMG-3D, the major advantage of these cameras is the dual focus optical system, which is as fast as using mirror rigs. This system also allows the left and right lenses operate in a perfectly synchronised way, with high-precision adjustment of the focusing, the zoom and the diaphragm. The Sony TD300 3D camera was featured on 3D Focus TV last year.
For the underwater 3D sequences EMG-3D has adapted a diving bell to allow the underwater world to be explored. Capable of reaching depths of almost 80 metres, this system allows 3D images to be recorded of underwater lava flows and the many species of coral that form the island’s marine ecosystem.
The first episode was aired on October 15th and is still available to watch in analgyph mode on Dailymotion in 3D : French Guiana in 3D
Orange TV viewers will be able to watch the second part of the series on March 20th.
