This program was shot over a period of 6 months in several sections. Firstly, a studio set build to house our 2 week of interior shooting, covering experiments and editorial links in high speed, with macro techniques, time-lapse and 4K Red Dragon. The next stage of production was spread across the world, filming contributors for the show. The last portion of shooting took place in the Nevada desert, where all of the links with Chris Packham, and our title sequence was shot.
