It was announced today that CAMERON | PACE Group will be bringing their FUSION 3D expertise to "Walking with Dinosaurs 3D", the CGI and live action 3D feature film being produced by BBC Earth Films, Evergreen Films and Reliance Pictures.

Neil Nightingale, Creative Director for BBC Earth Films said: "CAMERON | PACE Group shares our vision of setting a new benchmark for immersive 3D film with Walking with Dinosaurs 3D. It’s exciting to be joining forces with them to bring audiences a truly extraordinary experience. We’ll be using the highest technical and creative standards in 3D photography to immerse our audience in the film, they will truly feel right in amongst the action, part of the astonishing prehistoric world of the dinosaurs."

James Cameron, Co-Chairman of CAMERON | PACE Group said: "Walking with Dinosaurs 3D offers a fantastic opportunity to push our advances in 3D even further. We’re inspired by the creative ambition behind the film and the opportunity to work on a feature that aims to bring audiences a real, visceral experience."

The production combines world-class factual content with captivating storytelling that will take audiences on an unprecedented journey. The story told is one of the greatest ever to have unfolded on Earth: a story of families born and families torn apart, of growing up, of rivalry and competition and the relentless struggle to survive. Walking with Dinosaurs 3D is all the more jaw-dropping for being grounded in fact, it will be the closest audiences can get to exploring our world 70 million years ago.

"3D is integral to the storytelling, an incredible creative tool," said Mike Devlin, CEO of Evergreen Films. "Audiences will feel connected to the story in a completely different way, truly part of the action as it unfolds. 3D technology at its best can bring people into new worlds and create an incredible experience that has been impossible to achieve until recently."

The production will immerse audiences in the pre-historic age using photo-real backdrops and combining these with true-to-life animation from the Academy Award-winning animation house Animal Logic ("Happy Feet") working with leading animation producer Jinko Gotoh ("9", "Finding Nemo"). The widely anticipated film is fully financed by Reliance Entertainment with worldwide rights being handled by its subsidiary IM Global. Twentieth Century Fox holds US rights and has scheduled the film for a late 2013 release
