The actual shooting of this film is a masterpiece in itself. Continuing with the theme of preservation, MacGillivray stayed away from digital cameras and actually tracked down the world’s last remaining inventory of special plastic-based film that is able to withstand extreme temperatures. He uses a combination of 70mm and 3D technology to immerse the viewer in incredible landscapes. This film could quite possibly be the final work to be shot and produced with traditional old school IMAX camera's.
I would highly recommend this IMAX film to anyone. It is an incredible masterpiece that engages the viewer into a world that is not often thought of on a daily basis. Not often do people in American society stop to think about how our national parks are doing, let alone nature itself. This film allows the viewer to take a trip to some of the worlds most amazing beauties, and has the power to make people rethink their actions when it comes to recycling, and pollution. If enough people change their way of thinking to preservation of nature, it will hopefully
eventually create a big enough impact towards preservation.
