Recent tech developments have made ultra slo-mo a tantalizing treat for factual producers and viewers alike. This three-part series uses high-speed Phantom cameras and CGI to depict the lethal grace with which animal predators kick into high gear and launch their attacks. With episodes focused on jungle, ocean and savannah-dwelling creatures, Speed Kills provides an adrenaline-spiked glimpse of the split-seconds that create the chasm between the quick and the dead, and reveals the physiology behind the fast-movers.
