Project Summary

Dinosauria: Ascension, Domination, Downfall is an upcoming prehistoric wildlife documentary series that aims to be the most scientifically accurate, up-to-date and compelling dinosaur documentary to date. It is being made by a talented team of dedicated paleo-enthusiasts.

Our team strives to create a documentary that does three crucial things we believe are essential to making an exemplary natural history documentary like this: 

  1. Accurately showcasing the Mesozoic era (the era often dubbed "the age of the dinosaurs") and the animals that lived in it in all of their glory, portraying all dinosaurs and other Mesozoic reptiles like pterosaurs, plesiosaurs, etc. as they really were: beautiful, extremely successful and active animals that practice a wide range of fascinating behaviors and exhibit a variety of different forms. Our documentary will educate it's viewers on several aspects of these animals biology and lifestyle.

  2. Creating riveting stories that engage viewers into the world these animals lived in. We want to produce episodes that not only educate, but excite and captivate our audience with scenarios that invoke sympathy for the animals. Our goal is to make a documentary that will be exhilarating, beautiful, thrilling, and even sometimes heart-wrenching; a magnificent, awe-inspiring masterpiece not seen since BBC's award-winning mini-series Walking with Dinosaurs.

  3. Using immersive filmmaking techniques as well as a realistic and uncensored portrayal of nature to make the series feel like a filming crew traveled back in time and filmed real dinosaurs and their coinhabitants in their environments, just like how modern nature documentary makers produce their documentaries.

In a nutshell, our goal with Dinosauria is to apply and even further improve all of the things that made Walking with Dinosaurs so great (the things above) to Dinosauria, learn from its mistakes, while also giving it its own identity that will make it memorable and distinct. This will be a remarkable documentary on it's own that will be remembered fondly for years to come.

Dinosauria will consist of 10 episodes, each one taking place in a different time and location in the Mesozoic. These episodes will be around 30 minutes long, and will be produced with realistic looking CGI (created using Unreal Engine). Think like Walking with Dinosaurs, but bigger in scope and updated to current scientific rigor.
