How do series like Planet Earth capture footage of things like the inside of ant hills, or sharks feeding off of a dead whale?


Partially I’m wondering the physical aspect of how they fit in these places or get close enough to dangerous situations to film them; and partially I’m wondering how they seem to be in the right place at the right time to catch things like a dead whale sinking down into the ocean?

What are the odds they’d be there to capture that and how much time do they spend waiting for these types of things?

A lot of the insect footage is filmed on “sets” indoors. Set up a terrarium, drop in the bugs, and there you go. It’s a bit more difficult to get correct lighting for small scale stuff.
