K2 Communications is proud to announce a partnership with Sydney, Australia based production company Wild Pacific Media to release the 45-minute Giant Screen film, Ancient Australia, in February of 2018.
The film will take audiences to a place most people have never seen. Few places on earth remain as wild and pristine as the top end of Australia. It’s a land that time forgot; in the dry season huge bush fires ravage the ancient landscape and in the wet, the world’s largest thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding. These almost Jurassic conditions have created some of the richest wetlands on earth and harbor the oldest rainforests on the planet. They also create the perfect conditions for some of the deadliest creatures known to man. Out here man-eating sharks can live in fresh water streams and the most toxic jelly fish on earth drift just off the beaches. The largest dinosaurs to ever walk the earth left their footprints in these ancient rocks and one of their deadly relatives still lives here today. Come with us on an epic scientific adventure through some of the most beautiful landscapes on earth as we take you deep into salt water crocodile country.
Ancient Australia is being shot in stereoscopic 8K for IMAX and other Giant Screen theaters, in 3D, 2D and dome formats. Specialized underwater camera rigs have been designed to get you closer than ever before to the most powerful jaws on earth. Get ready for a wild ride as we soar over this timeless land and meet the brave people that work to protect the deadly creatures that call her home. Welcome to Ancient Australia.
Production has been ongoing this year, with post production scheduled for August through November. A clip will be shown at Euromax and GSCA. Please contact your K2 distribution rep for more information on the film (including a teaser video reel), or for pre-leasing info.
