Jean-Michel Cousteau's Film Trilogy,
This review is from: Jean-Michel Cousteau's Film Trilogy (Dolphins & Whales/Sharks/Ocean Wonderland Blu-ray 3D + Blu-ray) [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Compared to the BBC's efforts, especially Attenborough's "Blue Planet" series (not yet on Blu-Ray) the photography was generally disappointing. 3-D moments are usually with harmless schools of fish swimming closer to the camera than the main subject, suggesting several things relating to the abilities, techniques and daring of the film crew. Lighting and choice of waterscape often uninteresting, again suggesting a catch as catch can approach rather than the far superior
standards of BBC film crews. Despite these disappointments the films clearly hint at the potential for underwater 3-D photography, something I feel deserves support and encouragement. Let's hope 3-D nature films rise to the occasion.
