When the trailer dropped for the BBC’s new Planet Earth II collection, probably the most memeable second was a small fox diving confidently and head-first right into a pile of snow. It’s an ideal snippet for an excellent ol’ “It me,” or a “When it’s Monday,” or actually absolutely anything else. However did you ever marvel concerning the individual filming that second? Standing there in forty-under climate, periodically punching themselves within the eye to maintain it from freezing each time she blinks? That’s what Chadden Hunter and his staff needed to do, through the shoot for this weekend’s Grasslands episode.
Over the previous few weeks, we’ve been speaking with the creators of Planet Earth II about how precisely they make a present like this. The gear they use, the best way they strategy the shoots, and the way they flip years of wildlife footage into hour-lengthy documentaries. Hunter, for his half, has been engaged on Planet Earth because the present started, and has seen it evolve because the know-how has. Actually, he says if the tech hadn’t modified, there could be no Planet Earth II in any respect. We requested Hunter, who made a reputation for himself on the primary collection as “the man coated in bat crap,” how he appreciated capturing with all this new-fangled gadgetry, and what sorts of tales it allowed the BBC crew to inform.
