In situations of high stress time seems to slow down. The adrenaline rush put our senses in hyper drive mode, so we can register every single detail, this could mean the difference between life and death, in those kind of situations. This was the concept behind the Franchaise, to put all the characters in this sort of "frozen in time" moments.
There's wasn't a lot of time to develop the pieces, so we have to learn really fast the camera mapping technique which was originally used, for another Discovery Europe's piece, by our Italian friends at Nerdo: Alessandro Durando, Daniele Gavatorta y Lorenzo Levrero. Our deepest gratitude to them for sharing, so generously and selflessly, their technical know-how.
Actually there are 3 scenes in the spot originally done by Nerdo: Gold Rush, River Monsters and Dual Survival.
