CAUGHT IN MOTION turns the tables on time, unravelling the miraculous moments and remarkable behavior that fill the natural world. Ultra high-speed camera technology and cutting edge graphics allow viewers to decipher and marvel at the beauty and brilliance of animals in action – putting the animal kingdom on “instant replay”.
By stretching time, these “unseen moments” are essentially revealed, unveiling the biomechanics behind extraordinary and ingenious animals. Decode the synchronized flocking behaviour of thousands of Budgerigars evading a predator, crack the key to the Kangaroos efficient hopping or a Dolphin’s powerful propulsion. Discover the moments hidden between the blink of an eye: the lightning fast punch of a Peacock Mantis Shrimp, the elastic flick of a Chameleon’s sticky tongue or the hovering prowess of a Dragonfly. CAUGHT IN MOTION opens a window to this fast-paced world of physiological elegance and adaptation.
Journey beneath the waterline, where gravity takes a back seat – allowing aquatic creatures an astonishing range of fluid, innovative and often impressive forms of motion. Then, emerge onto solid ground – a landscape that requires a combination of clever adaptations and appropriate appendages to traverse – a challenge that land animals have met with phenomenal flair. Finally, take flight and escape earthly bonds. Nature’s aviators defy gravity and effortlessly embrace the principles of aerodynamics.
Revealing the mystery of motion, CAUGHT IN MOTION is an adventure in animal biomechanics, that showcases natures elegant and ingenious moves.
