Meanwhile Agency, Chief Productions, Grande Experiences and Chester Zoo have teamed up on “a breath-taking 360° immersive experience, showcasing some of the most iconic species in the British Isles.”
The immersive doc features stunning footage of dolphins, seals, puffins, Scottish wildcats, beavers and many more incredible species, all caught by specialist filmmakers behind hit BBC and ITV wildlife documentaries.
Directed by Billy Offland and written by the agency, the film is part of an exhibition which invites visitors to discover the UK’s most iconic native species in a gallery of giant screens and an interactive floor projection.
Helen Bradshaw, UK regional field programme manager at the zoo, said: “For the first time ever, visitors to the zoo will be able to immerse themselves into an incredible 360° environment filled with many of our country’s most iconic species, including colourful puffins, bottlenose dolphins, dam-building beavers and even the secret lives of the Scottish wildcat, with a few extra surprises in store too.
“Britain is one of the world’s most nature-depleted nations and, as a wildlife conservation charity, we want to create a future where nature thrives and that starts right here at home in the UK. The launch of Native: The Incredible World of British Wildlife will help shine a much-needed spotlight on the very best that British wildlife has to offer and what we can all do, together, to ensure that it can be enjoyed for generations to come.”
The film premieres with exclusive access for Chester Zoo members from December 15-17 and will be available for free with zoo entry and open to all from 18 December.
