Using some of the most advanced 360 technology, cutting edge science and poetic storytelling, this heart-warming journey brings Judi Dench’s favourite oak tree alive in a completely new way.

Combining cutting-edge graphics, created using real scan data, and state-of-the-art 360 filming techniques startling insights into the life of Judi’s oak are revealed and audiences are able to gain a new understanding of the trees within Judi Dench’s 6-acre garden. Travelling up the trunk and deep within the branches of Judi’s favourite oak tree, audiences learn how this incredible carbon capture machine is helping to save our planet.

Using an incredibly detailed 3D scan of Judi’s 200-year-old oak tree the team built a 360-degree journey through Judi’s most impressive oak, stripping it back to reveal each of its secrets. Viewers will see just how many leaves are on this one tree, an incredible 260,000 – the equivalent of three tennis courts. A remarkably clever algorithm instantly transforms the branches into measurable volumetric cylinders, measuring in at a staggering 25 tonnes and stretching a mind blowing 12km – over half the height of Mount Everest.
