Throughout history, butterflies have fascinated artists and philosophers, scientists and schoolchildren with their profound mystery and beauty. In Metamorphosis you will explore their remarkable world as few ever have before.
Spectacular photography, computer animation and magnetic resonance imaging open once hidden doors to every stage of a butterfly’s life-cycle. From an egg the size of a pinhead to a magnificent flying insect. It is a transformation so incredible biologists have called it “butterfly magic.”
The butterfly’s superbly engineered body is magnified hundreds of times to reveal compound eyes made of thousands of individual lenses, wings covered with microscopic solar panels, and navigational systems that unerringly guide Monarch butterflies on their annual migration from Canada to Mexico.
How did these extraordinary creatures come into being? Are they the products of a blind, undirected process? Or were they designed by an intelligence cause?
Filmed in North, Central, and South America, Metamorphosis is an unforgettable documentary filled with the joys of discovery and wonder.
Flight: The Genius of Birds
FLIGHT is a unique wildlife documentary. An exploration of the animal kingdom from a perspective ignored by television and the scientific establishment. For instead of presenting a worldview based upon the blind, undirected process of Darwinian evolution, FLIGHT offers a compelling look at the design and purpose woven throughout the fabric of life on Earth.
FLIGHT is highlighted by technical and artistic excellence comparable to the BBC’s Planet Earth and the Academy Award winning March of the Penguins. Photographed in North America, Peru, England, Greenland and Antarctica, the film combines stunning images and computer animation with cutting-edge research and an original musical score to celebrate birds and their incomparable ability to live in the skies.
Living Waters: Intelligent Design in the Oceans of the Earth is the third film in Illustra Media’s series THE DESIGN OF LIFE. Each episode explores a different realm of the animal kingdom and the remarkable biological systems that make life on Earth possible.
Photographed in North America, England, Peru, Greenland, and Antarctica. Photographed throughout the Pacific, Caribbean, and Atlantic oceans, and the rivers of the Washington and Canada, Living Waters explores the mysteries of Humpback whales, sea turtles, dolphins, and salmon from a perspective ignored by the BBC, National Geographic, and Discovery Channel. Instead of exalting a worldview based upon scientific materialism and undirected evolutionary processes, Living Waters celebrates a timeless truth: every creature that swims, runs, flies, or crawls across our planet is the product not of genetic accidents or blind chance but of purpose, imagination, and design.
This unforgettable documentary weaves a magnificent tapestry of cinematography, computer animation, original music, cutting-edge science, fascinating stories, and much more. For, beyond its aesthetic brilliance, Living Waters is an experience that will touch the hearts and minds of anyone who has ever paused to marvel at the wonders of the living world…and then pondered how they all came to be.
