12.15.2013 – Technology in making films has proved the impossible can be possible by leaps and bounds. Computer generated imagery has revolutionized the way films are made and it is everything can now be done with outstanding visual concept.
“Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie” is one of those films that incorporate CGI with photo realistic textures that seems so real. But it’s entirely generated by visual special effects by powerful computers and this film certainly delivers that idea…
For the first time in movie history, audiences will truly see and feel what it was like when dinosaurs ruled the Earth. “Walking with Dinosaurs: The 3D Movie” is the ultimate immersive, big-screen adventure for families. You’ll meet dinosaurs more real than you’ve ever seen as you embark on a thrilling prehistoric journey, where Patchi, an underdog dino, triumphs against all odds to become a hero for the ages.
Featuring the voices of Patchi’s heroics and antics resonate in any era, but he is also a product of his times and stomping grounds – the latter part of the Cretaceous Period, about 70 million years ago in a land we now call Alaska.
Audiences will really get behind Patchi and root for this underdog hero to triumph. The movie points to our continuing fascination, if not obsession with creatures that have been extinct for millions of years. The T. Rex and the Gorgosaurus are among the most fearsome predators to have ever walked the Earth, but kids (of all ages) can’t get enough of them. Dinosaurs spark our imaginations as much as any fictional creation does.
“Kids love dinosaurs, and they’re going to love “Walking with Dinosaurs” because it feels so real, has lots of humor and fun,” says John Leguizamo, who voices Alex, a prehistoric parrot who is Patchi’s best pal. “Plus, they’ll love the camaraderie between Patchi and Alex.” Dinosaurs combine the best of two worlds: they’re scary, but because dinos haven’t been around for millions of years, they’re non-threatening.
Co-director Neil Nightingale believes our enduring obsession with them is here to stay. “Dinosaurs are the most amazing creatures to have ever existed on our planet. In four and a half billion years of Earth’s existence, there have been no creatures that are more dramatic or terrifying. Dinosaurs fascinate us because they represent a sort of safe danger. You can be scared of them but not too scared because they are long gone.
They’re not going to come out from under the bed or pounce on you in the dark! And it is not just dinosaurs we are talking about; it is The Age of Dinosaurs. It is amazing to know that the world we now live in, the skies above us and the stars we see were once their realm– incredible animals now lost to prehistoric history.”
“In bringing WALKING WITH DINOSAURS to the big screen, we wanted to transport audiences back to a real world, to meet dinosaurs that truly existed and to immerse audiences in that world,” Nightingale continues. “For a big motion picture experience it’s also vital to have a strong and emotionally engaging story. So we used what we know about Late Cretaceous Alaskan dinosaurs as inspiration for a fictional, character-driven story we knew would entertain families.”
