PLF generated the award-winning IMAX film Bugs!, Britain's most successful theatrical documentary, which grossed $32m worldwide. The company will now be based at Off The Fence's Bristol office, where Streather will provide exclusive media services to OTF.
Already in development is IMAX 3D feature Flight of the Butterflies, about the epic migration of the monarch butterfly, and directed by Bugs! director Mike Slee. Also slated is digital feature Great White 3-D, which will be directed by photographer Bob Talbot and includes footage of the fearsome creatures in their natural environment as well as interviews with shark attack victims and scientific researchers.
Ellen Windemuth, Managing Director, Off the Fence said: 'Phil Streather is an expert in the complicated process of live-action 3D. Combined with his knowledge of the IMAX world and the rapidly emerging Digital 3D market we have great hopes for our future together.'
