  • We are very proud to announce that our film THE BLOB: A GENIUS WITHOUT A BRAIN has just won the Audience Award at the 15th Edition of the Pariscience festival! 

    Here comes the Blob! More commonly known as slime-mold, this extraordinary one-billion-year-old organism challenges our worldview on living matter and is about to revolutionize the concept of brainless intelligence. 

    Blending science fiction, animation, the beauty of nature, humor and cutting-edge science, this is a quirky trip exploring this most surprising and mind-blowing organism. Neither animal, nor plant, nor fungi, the blob is one giant single cell whose amazing capacities are leading pioneer scientists to a very new world – that of brainless intelligence. 

    Shot on 3 continents, the film is a scientific investigation shaped like a thriller, following top international experts from Europe, Japan and the US, through their major discoveries, and offering a mind-blowing experience into the very roots of cognition.

  • 700 Sharks nominated at the Emmy’s. A 4K special in which we dive for the first time by night into a feeding frenzy of 700 sharks in Polynesia, the largest concentration of sharks in the world. Filmed with very ambitious camera gear, this documentary reveals unprecedented social behavior of sharks.

     

     

    The film demonstrates that, contrary to what science said up to now, sharks do not hunt alone. They are actually organized with a leader, have strategies and collaborate among one another. An organization that resembles a pack of wolves or lions.
    Discover incredible scenes of hunting, like in a savannah wildlife film, in which fifty sharks team up to capture one fish, and prey that sometimes manages to outsmart sharks.
    Filmed with underwater 4K cameras, drones, Gopro black for “bullet time” effect, high speed cameras to capture the best predation scenes that last less than a second. 
    A world premiere that will change our knowledge of shark behavior.
