Synopsis

Discover a secret world hidden beneath your feet; the world of the amazing Micro Monsters. Find yourself shrunk down to the size of an insect to be thrown into the thrilling but dangerous world of bugs, narrated by David Attenborough. Over five episodes, experience the conflicts, courtships, and communities of this micro world. Witness a scorpion and a centipede fight to the death; experience the process of an aphid miraculously cloning itself; and an army of green ants building incredible structures. Narrowly avoid the deadly ambush of a Trapdoor spider and become transfixed by the Portia spider’s deadly musical lullaby. Combining spectacular live-action close-ups with the power of computer graphics, watch a caterpillar’s transformation from inside its cocoon and discover a beetle’s secret chemical weapon. Produced for the launch of the Quest 2, Micro Monsters brought Oculus users an experience of unparalleled quality. This live-action VR experience can be seen in 8K 3D 60fps, revealing the real-life superpowers of arthropods from a completely unique perspective.

Director's Statement

We are excited to present what we believe sets a new benchmark for immersive story-telling. In this awe-inspiring five-part VR series produced to 8K 3D 60fps, you’ll discover some of the world’s familiar creatures from an entirely new perspective, only accessible through the power of VR. Narrated by natural history legend Sir David Attenborough and with a combination of live-action and CG content this content will transport you to the micro world, complete with full immersive sound design and composed music track. This is a truly cinematic experience.
