'Tiny Giants 3D' (Blu-ray)
(Blu ray 3D / NR / 2015 / BBC Home Entertainment)
Overview: 'Tiny Giants 3D' is a short about what happens underneath us. A chipmunk and a small mouse go on an adventure as they grow and learn about life - and it's obstacles; all in 3D!
Blu ray Verdict: 'Tiny Giants 3D' is a BBC Earth Production, narrated by the always-lovely Stephen Fry, music composed by Ben Foster, executive produced by both Amanda Hill and Neil Nightingale, written and produced by Mark Brownlow and Michael Gunton, and also directed by Mark Brownlow.
The incredibly immersive power of specialist 3D cameras transports viewers in a very intimate way into another world to experience the titanic battles these creatures face to survive. Narrated by Stephen Fry ('Kingdom'), 'Tiny Giants 3D' reveals the astonishing lives of tiny animals in an adventure of giant proportions.
Now, admittedly, 'Tiny Giants 3D' only lasts 44 minutes but my, how damn cute this "documentary" is! 'Tiny Giants 3D' follows the life of a chipmunk and a scorpion mouse. Basically, it's what life looks like from their small size. Sure we've seen movies do much the same thing ie 'Honey, I Shrunk The Kids,' but here, the story of a young chipmunk trying to prepare for winter along with that a young scorpion mouse venturing out into the world for the first time is as cute as it gets - truly!
Narrated in charming style (can he do any other style, I ask you) by Stephen Fry, filmed largely in the Sonoran Desert, the 3D aspect of 'Tiny Giants' is amazing to behold; to draw you in with. but, for those expecting a blaze of hippity-hoppity movements you should know that the producers/cameramen take their own sweet time to ensure the lives of these critters come across as both dramatic and exciting! In truth, the accompanying music really does enhance the visuals and is often amusing in its overplay. This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.77:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
