In March-April 2014 Scubazoo welcomed Sir David Attenborough and Atlantic Productions to Sabah, Borneo to film their latest SKY 3D show – Conquest of the Skies. As fixers Scubazoo were responsible for permits, permissions, bookings and logistics for the complex and intensive shoot which included three film units and over 50 international and local crew. Conquest of the skies was released on New Years day 2015 on Sky 3D and Sky 1 HD and is being repeated regularly on both channels. We’d like to thank Sabah Tourism, Sabah Forestry, Glenn Reynolds, Eric Thien, Cede Prudente, Ch’ien Lee, Simon Amos and everyone involved for helping to make this shoot such a success.
Take a look at some of Jason Isley’s production photos on Sky’s First Look page.
