Tiny Giants 3D reveals the astonishing lives of small animals in a world of giants. Using the incredibly immersive power of specialist 3D cameras, audiences will be transported in a very intimate way into another world and experience the titanic battles these creatures face to survive. A chipmunk in a wild wood and a scorpion mouse in Arizona’s scorched deserts are both forced to grow up fast when they find themselves alone for the first time. Facing experienced rivals and huge predators, our chipmunk hero must find courage to gather enough nuts for winter. Forced out of the family home, our adolescent scorpion mouse is then swept away in a flash flood. He needs to learn the skills to survive and lay claim to his own patch of desert as he becomes an adult. Only by using their ingenious “superpowers” can our heroes stay alive and become masters of their universe.

Length: 20:00 and 40:00
