African Fish Eagle Landing

The African Fish Eagle: one of Africa’s most symbolic creatures.

The incredibly talented falconry & raptor rehabilitation team over at Falcon Ridge in Central Drakensberg, South Africa, allowed us to film their female Fish Eagle in 360 degrees.

We used our stereoscopic 3D specifically for our showreel. 360x3D allows a viewer to not only see in full 360 degree field of view, but also to experience depth perception when watched with a device like a Google Cardboard or Oculus Rift headset. In our showreel, we freeze the bird with its wings spread to really get to experience the power of stereoscopy, or 3D.

We specifically loved this shot because the bird flies seemingly from nowhere right up towards the camera.
