Following on from their previous Emmy-nominated titles – Micro Monsters, First Life, and Kingdom Of Plants – Alchemy Immersive and Meta Quest have launched their most ambitious co-production yet with David Attenborough’s Conquest of the Skies. In this three-part Immersive series, join David Attenborough to explore the astonishing 300-million-year dynasty of flight in exceptional 3D 8k 180 Virtual Reality at 60fps with 3D audio.

1.618 Digital continues its collaboration with Alchemy Immersive and Meta, delivering immersive sound design and 3D mix to this three-part VR series. We used a scientific method to vocalise the prehistoric creatures. Also, the project’s leading sound designer Oliver Kadel utilises cutting-edge spatial audio recording techniques such as Ambisonics and Equal Segment Aray 3D developed by Hyunkook Lee at the University of Huddersfield to bring the environments to life and fully immerse our audience.
