David Attenborough takes you on an awe-inspiring journey through the evolution of flight in Conquest of the Skies, the latest VR 180 docuseries from Alchemy Immersive and Meta Quest, in collaboration with Atlantic Productions, ZOO VFX and 1.618 Digital. Informed by the latest paleontological breakthroughs, this immersive series lets you marvel at an incredible variety of aerodynamic forms as you discover the 320-million-year dynasty of flight in stunning 3D 8K 60fps Virtual Reality, with ambisonic audio. Over three episodes, learn how insects, reptiles and birds unshackled themselves from the grips of gravity and took to the skies, with natural history legend, David Attenborough, as your guide.

Main Creator’s Statement

Conquest of the Skies is a story of transcendence and evolution that is designed to humble and create a sense of awe for audiences as they move through time. There are a lot of new techniques involved in putting a project like this together, and when I think about it I realise that the efforts and magic that the whole team weaved together to assemble this series echo nature’s triumphs in a way. Everything is always evolving: from life on this earth, to David Attenborough’s storytelling and to the production techniques we employ, all the way down to the mediums our stories can be showcased on... It’s an exciting thing to realise that the best is yet to come.
