The Moa and the Harpagornis Behind the scene
Check out this revealing BTS for “The Moa and the Harpagornis” created by the talented folks over at Fido! They have created many feathered creatures through the years and that track record helped them secure some amazing sequences in Colossus Production’s groundbreaking factual entertainment production “David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive”, all made in stereoscopic 4K.
Fido was responsible for creating and bringing to life several extinct animals, including both the legendary Archaeopteryx and the iconic Dodo.
This is a look behind the scenes from their production of the two largest birds in the film: the enormous Moa and the impressive Harpagornis eagle.
