The foothills of the Alps
The foothills of the alps combine rugged mountains with extensive plains. Hardly anywhere else in Central Europe do wilderness and civilization come so close together. It is a story about life in transition, between the last wild natural landscapes and the human-influenced areas.
Between culture and alpine wilderness
They are all confronted with changes in their habitat, which affect them differently from species to species. Where the ermine uses artificial snow corridors for better camouflage and chamois discover busy working quarries as their new habitat, some sensitive species such as ptarmigan and Arctic hare suffer from excessive tourism.
From primary rainforests, through picturesque rice fields to the highest volcanoes in Sumatra.
Centurioni wildlife film in a nutshell
It’s not just about doing film, it’s about embedding a message through it. An exciting story that is told suspensefully is always the best way to attract someone’s attention.
The stories we like to tell deal about endangered species, the struggle of survival in the wilderness which has become a serious challenge for many creatures demanding on close interaction with their natural environment. Varying global habitats still keep lots of hidden secrets about the significant role of creatures within their living space, representing the ecological value of an environment.
