I recently watched the Planet Earth TV series. There are some beautiful shots in the different episodes! And one shot (or one particular type of shot) I'm curious about how they done it.
In the 8th episode "Jungles" (but in many other episodes of the series and also in other documentaries) are some 360 degree time lapse shots of growing plants and mushrooms. We can see a plants growing.
My question: are those (360 degrees) time lapse shots done in a studio or at the particular places on earth (i.e. where the plants are originally resident)? Because in a studio I think the shots are much more easier to accomplish. From my point of view I can't determine the fact where the plants are placed for the shots.
This youtube video is not taken from the Planet Earth tv series, but that are exactly the shots I'm talking about:
