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.
