"Mundo à Vista" - Season 2 (six episodes) - Premiere on TV: 4th July, SIC and SIC Notícias
Season 2 of "Mundo à Vista" ("World in Sight") will air on 4th July at prime time, during the late evening news segment of SIC and SIC Notícias TV channels, which holds more than 1/4 share of all channels broadcasted in Portugal. The footage was shot by Canon Ambassador Joel Santos, but many episodes also have footage shot by professional photographer Magali Tarouca, with voice and interviews by the travel journalist Teresa Conceição.
The show started in 2018 featuring episodes about Mongolia (Eagle Hunters and Migration of the Kazakh Nomads), Mongolia (The Tsaatan — Reindeer nomadic people), Ghana (Bosumtwi sacred lake fishermen), Norway (the Lofoten islands), Ethiopia (Danakil depression — Erta Ale Volcano and the Salt Miners) and Iceland (the glaciers), most of them with an 8 to 10 min duration.
Now, in 2019’s Season Two, given the 2018 season's success, the show matured and the episodes will have between 15 and 20 minutes, featuring Mexico (Day of The Dead and the Butterfly Fishermen), Guatemala (Holy Week), Guatemala/Costa Rica/El Salvador (Central America's Active Volcanoes), China (Cormorant Fishermen and Farmers), Niger (The Wodaabe people and the Tuareg traditions), Guatemala (Lake Atitlan - Animistic and Mayan Beliefs), all shot in 2018 and early 2019.
Besides the compelling, original and truthful narratives, the show is characterised by visually stunning footage, most of it shot in low light or challenging light conditions, like erupting volcanoes, fishermen at twilight, night time processions or tribal rituals. This is why all episodes were shot in 4K using Canon cameras (5D MK IV in China and EOS R in all remaining countries) and lenses, except from the drone footage. Some of the most notable lenses used were the RF 28-70 F/2 L, the RF 50mm F/1.2 L, the EF 16-35 f/4 L IS and the EF 70-200 f/4 L MK III IS, among others. Most of the times, 4x EOS R bodies were used at the same time, either to shoot video, make time-lapses or, off course, create stills, two of them kindly loaned by Canon Europe and the other two owned by Joel Santos and Magali Tarouca.
The show premiered this Thursday, 4th July, and will be running an episode per week, in a total of 6 documentaries, shot and directed by Joel Santos and Magali Tarouca, voice and interviews by Teresa Conceição (SIC) and editing by Luís Gonçalves (SIC), for the Portuguese leading TV channels, SIC and SIC Notícias, broadcasted in Portugal and worldwide by cable/satellite services.
