Sea Monsters: NG film for Oct. 2007
I was wondering around Mike Everhart's Oceans of Kansas website and
stumbled over this... Apparently, National Geographic made a
documentary of sorts about the Cretaceous Interior Seaway. It comes
out this October.
Accompany a team of palaeontologists as they work to solve an
82-million-year-old mystery ...
Stunning photo-realistic computer-generated animation transports
audiences back to the Late Cretaceous, when a great inland ocean
divided North America in two. The film will follow a curious and
adventurous dolichorynchops (familiarly known as a 'dolly') as she
travels through life's stages, experiencing the world from her spot
near the bottom of the food chain. Along the way, she'll encounter
long-necked pleisosaurs, giant turtles, enormous fish, ferocious
flippered crocs, fierce sharks, and the most dangerous sea monsters of
all, the mosasaurs.
Sea Monsters weaves together a series of palaeontological digs from
around the globe in a compelling story about scientists working as
prehistoric detectives to answer questions about this ancient and
mysterious ocean world. Viewers accompany modern and historical
palaeontologists to remote locations as they excavate the remains of
some of the most awe-inspiring creatures of all time, and together
they'll discover fossils which shed light on exactly what happened to
the film's incredible cast of characters.
The film combines the powerful and experiential nature of the giant
screen with strong science and educational materials, highlighting the
complexity and fragility of life in Earth's oceans. Merging
ultra-high-resolution 3D graphics with National Geographic's trademark
authenticity, compelling imagery and powerful storytelling, Sea
Monsters is an unforgettable prehistoric adventure.
