For a joint Sky 3D/Sky Atlantic commission, independent production company Pioneer Productions are currently producing a Ben Fogle fronted series about extreme weather called Storm City.
The team will simulate what happens during earthquakes, extreme winds, avalanches and floods. 3D cameras were fitted to a purpose built two-storey house as weather conditions are reconstructed and tests carried out to fully demonstrate the catastrophic damage that extreme natural forces can cause.
Ben Fogle said, “This is an extraordinary series to work on and it will look incredible too. I’ve been staggered by the scale and how much I’ve learned about the effects that nature can have on our environment. I hope people enjoy watching it as much as I’ve enjoyed making it.”
Celia Taylor, Commissioning Editor for Sky said “We all knew that there was an incredible 3D film to be made about natural disasters but Storm City has gone beyond that to deliver incredible science, massive stunts and highly emotive human stories that make it compelling, breath-taking and fascinating in equal measures”.
Storm City is due to be aired in 2D on Sky Atlantic and in 3D on Sky D in the Summer.
