It's only been a week since a baby iguana narrowly escaping death went viral and everyone remembered just how incredible the Planet Earth series can be. Planet Earth II, though it's not yet released in the U.S., is underway in the U.K. It's a series that does many things right. Add 360-degree video to the list of things it's doing well.
In a new 360-degree video, narrated by series narrator David Attenborough, the BBC takes you behind the scenes of that incredible iguana scene. The 360-degree camera is not only used to show the film crew rehearsing how they'll move during that scene and explaining what's happening on the beach, but it's also used to great effect to show seals swimming, the iguanas sunbathing, and a flock of blue-footed boobys enjoying a sunset.
