Galapagos: Nature’s Wonderland 3D

Discover a paradise unlike any other.
In the vastness of the Pacific Ocean, there is a paradise unlike any other: the Galapagos Archipelago. Amongst these fascinating and remote volcanic islands, life has played out over millions of years in relative isolation. The result is a wonderland of nature, with a remarkable collection of plants and charismatic animals that have all adapted to this unique environment. Meet giant half-ton tortoises and marine iguanas that spit sea-salt from their noses. Dance with tropical albatrosses and hunt fishes with the colorful blue-footed boobies. Dive into the ocean with flightless cormorants and swim with tiny penguins thousands of miles from their natural habitats.

Around the archipelago, converging cross-winds and deep, cold, nutrient-rich currents have made possible a unique and bio-diverse marine oasis, which boasts everything from abundant microscopic plankton to Galapagos sharks. “Galapagos 3D: Nature’s Wonderland” is a story of discovery, of survival against the odds, and of nature’s ingenuity, all brought to life in stunning 3D. You’re invited to explore these extraordinary and enchanted islands, whose remarkable inhabitants helped change the way we understand nature.

“Galapagos 3D: Nature’s Wonderland” is an nWave Pictures Distribution release of a Colossus Productions film in association with SKY 3D. Written by Sir David Attenborough, the film is produced by Anthony Geffen, directed by Martin Williams, and features music by Joel Douek, Elik Alvarez and Freddy Sheinfeld.

Mysteries of China

A tribute to China's rich past and vibrant present

Mysteries of Ancient China captures one of the great archaeological events in modern times, telling the story of ancient China, the First Emperor, and the literal foundation of the China we know today.  Starting with modern China and springing back as we seek the birth of this mighty nation, we talk of an ancient time when a fierce warrior brought together a warring nation, and how an accidental discovery changed everything we know about China’s past.

It happened in 1974, when farmers, digging a well in Xi’an, stumbled upon one of the greatest archaeological finds the world had ever discovered – the Terracotta Warriors and the Tomb of the First Emperor. The Terracotta Warriors offer a unique time capsule into the past, revealing many things about the very founding of this great country, which we use to tell a larger story of the growth of China into a true superpower.

From modern China, to ancient China, and back again, the film is a visual adventure, using beautiful aerial photography and cutting-edge time-lapse techniques to reveal great majesty, tragedy, splendor and growth, in a nation that continues to excel quickly into the future.
