STORM CITY 3D
Storm City 3D took you inside some of nature’s most dramatic natural disasters in stunning 3D.
From earthquakes and tsunamis to tornados and electric storms we mixed real life stories of survival, the latest scientific technology and 3D movie FX to find what it feels like to be in the eye of the storm. Pitting both specially constructed buildings and host Ben Fogle against simulations of some of nature’s most violent forces the mission was to see how can you survive?
This was a hugely complex, expensive and challenging project.
