METAMORPHOSIS: The Beauty and Design of Butterflies

Throughout history butterflies have fascinated artists and philosophers, scientists and school children 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 superbly engineered body of a butterfly is magnified hundreds of times to reveal compound eyes made of thousands of individual lenses, wings covered with microscopic solar panels that warm the insect’s muscles for flight, 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 that transcends the material world?

Filmed in the rain forests of Ecuador, Mexico’s Trans-Volcanic mountain range, and leading research centers, Metamorphosis is an unforgettable documentary filled with the joys of discovery and wonder.

“What an achievement– artistically, scientifically, musically, inspirationally. The film is stunning, spectacular, and convincing. The photography and music are outstanding. It’s going to be a joy to watch this case for intelligent design spread around the world.” (D. C. – CA)

    Today, we showed Metamorphosis to our entire staff. Everyone was so excited. It’s a gorgeous film. The photography, music, and story are wonderful. We’re looking forward to helping promote it any way we can. Fabulous job.

    This is the BEST Illustra Media film ever!!!!! I just love it! The music made hairs stand up on my arms. The story was very intriguing (my kids keep wowing over the beautiful butterflies and chrysalis). The cinematography was the best ever. Thanks for all the blood, sweet and tears you put into this show. It truly paid off!

    What an extraordinary piece of work this is. It’s simply amazing and so well done! It was one WOW after another, as we watched, with bated-breath, clear through the end of the credits. We congratulate you all.

  5. P. N. – Chicago, IL

    This is just a quick note to let you know how happy I am, and praising God! The film is simply outstanding. I love the photography, the animation, the story, the music and the way they all came together.
