Out of Bounds
2019
40, 20

Mighty. Rugged. Magnificent.

Mountains tower above the plains and dominate the skyline. Critical to life – they fill our rivers, sway the weather, and provide sanctuary to incredibly diverse wildlife. They are as beautiful as they are dangerous – and for a brave few, they are the source of incredible adventure.

Follow Australian Olympic gold medalist Torah Bright, as she journeys through the great American Cordillera, the world’s longest chain of mountain ranges extending from Antarctica all the way to Alaska. Along the journey, Torah will encounter world-class snow athletes, scientists and environmentalists who all seek a deeper understanding of the mountains that inspire them.

From glaciated valleys to icy tundras, we’ll venture through the mountain’s most awe-inspiring vistas. We’ll discover the crucial role mountains play in our ecosystem and every day life, while witnessing the most spectacular snowboard action ever brought to the giant screen!

The Planets
2019

Scale the poisonous volcanoes of Venus and the ancient red dunes of Mars. Bore through the icy crust of Europa to imagine life in hidden seas. Navigate the otherworldly archipelagos of Titan in the shadow of Saturn’s dreamy rings.

The Planets is journey from science fiction to ‘science vision,’ an aspirational look at the next century in human spacefaring achievement, profiling the technological and pioneering stepping stones thought necessary for humankind to become a truly interplanetary species. From moon bases and space elevators to asteroid outposts and aerostatic habitats, the film will profile the dreamers of today – engineers and artists from universities, international space agencies and private enterprise – whose proof-of-concept technologies and mind-blowing innovations may one day allow our children’s children to push ever deeper into a solar system both beautiful and bizarre.

Feathered Dinosaurs
2019
40

On the green slopes of giant volcanoes lives Microraptor. Not a bird, nor a normal dinosaur: with four wings, this small, feathered dinosaur glides between trees in search of lizards or insects to feed its young. Being tiny exposes it to various threats from its neighbours: on the ground, Sinosauropteryx – a squirrel version of Velociraptor – and the massive Yutyranus – a sort of feathered T-Rex – roam in search of dinner. Highly exposed on the ground, Microraptor can only climb trees to escape. Its neighbours have other strategies: primitive mammals rely on dens to hide in and poisonous heel spurs to inflict deadly wounds; coloured Caudipteryx – a peacock version of a small Velociraptor – or “Pyjama raptor” – another fluffy raptor – have to run through the maze of trees to confuse their predators. Every minute, Microraptor battles to survive: Darwinopterus pterosaurs attack through the canopy, winter brings snow and volcanoes spew deadly clouds of ashes. Will Microraptor thrive long enough to give its chicks a chance to flee and venture out of their nest?

Mountain Quest
2017
37

A lone climber, suspended hundreds of feet in the air, struggles to find the next finger hold, defining progress in inches. The dramatic visuals immerse us in a gripping contest of human determination versus the reality of gravity’s potent grip. CLIFFHANGERS explores the precarious relationship of humanity’s quest to scale some of the world’s highest places, while also revealing the scientific and technological advances that have enabled us to conquer these peaks, exposing the heartbeat of the human soul.

A tapestry of jaw-dropping action, combined with rich STEM content…..for example, physics of the real world – how climbing is a tug-of-war between friction and gravity, while skiing involves the same battle of forces in reverse. Educational insights about the engineering of climbing gear and skis, and the aeronautical effects of a wingsuit, are seamlessly integrated with dramatic visuals and action. The film will be narrated by Willem Dafoe and release early 2018.

Australia Undiscovered
2018

Far Northern Australia is a land of extremes. Huge bushfires ravage the ancient landscape in the dry season and the world’s biggest thunderstorms bring torrential rain and flooding in the wet season. These almost Jurassic conditions have created some of the richest wetlands on Earth.

The coast, rivers and waterholes are haunted by sharks. The plains are guarded by territorial buffalo and venomous snakes but the apex predator here is a living dinosaur the salt water crocodile. They have been on the planet in almost identical form for 200 million years – even surviving the meteor strike that wiped out the rest of the dinosaurs.

Crocodiles are the ultimate predators. They attack with stealth, are extremely aggressive and can grow up to 7 meters in length. Up here, they have even been known to attack and pull fisherman out of boats.

This film will carry the viewers across the whole Top End of Australia, from the wild Kimberly coast through mysterious and rarely seen Arnhem Land and then deep into the world’s oldest rainforest in Cape York.

Come with us on an epic journey through some of the wildest landscapes on Earth as we take you deep into crocodile’s world. AUSTRALIA UNDISCOVERED will be shot in magnificent 8K for IMAX and other Giant Screen theaters. Specialized underwater camera rigs have been designed to get the audience closer than ever before to the most powerful jaws on Earth.

Hello Earth
2017
31

Why do we long for contact with others so much? Does Internet really connect people? How can we tell other potential inhabitants of the Universe that we’re here?

Seeking contact with others remains one of the earliest and strongest humans’ needs. By try-ing to fulfil this need, we invented writing, radio, telephone and finally – the Internet. We overcame language barriers, problems related to distance and information flow time. Thanks to modern technologies and communication devices, we develop our civilisation – we are changing the world and ourselves.

“Hello Earth” will take you on a journey through landmark moments of the history of com-munication: you will fly over the mythical Tower of Babel, see the first pictograms – paint-ings in Lascaux Cave, pay a visit to Johannes Gutenberg, visit a surrealistic library, witness the first ever phone call, see the beginnings of the Internet and launch of the Voyager. You will immerse into Space and – who knows – maybe you will hear someone seeking contact you with?

Wonders of the Arctic
2014
42, 24

Our ongoing quest to explore and come to terms with the Arctic is presented in the context of the crucial role that ice plays in the north. Ice is to the Arctic as trees are to the rainforest. It is the underpinning of the ecosystem, the foundation upon which the animals and plants of the north depend. We meet an ice scientist who lives and works with the Inuit, blending their traditional knowledge with modern scientific methods. We travel to the town of Churchill, Manitoba, polar bear capital of the world, where the people have turned a feared predator into a revered asset. We join an expedition of beluga biologists who are monitoring the migration patters of these ice dependent whales. Underlying all these stories are the changes that are quickly overtaking the people and animals who have adapted over thousands of years to this land of ice and snow.

Come with us on a spectacular 3D ride across, over, and through the magical realms of the most dramatic continent on earth: Africa.

Our guide through this enchanted kingdom is the sorcerer itself – water. Water crafts wild Africa, conjuring up life wherever it journeys… travelling above the plains on seasonal winds, cascading along raging rivers or sheltering coral cities. Audiences will be plunged into fantastic places and meet amazing creatures.

On the journey through the magical realms of Africa, we’ll discover the fascinating secrets of this enchanted kingdom. How spectacular thermal geysers help turn thousands of flamingos pink, and create the perfect conditions for them to breed; why the heat beating down on waterless dunes in the Namib Desert forces a lizard to dance; and why it snows on the equator.

It’s an adventure where you will truly believe the real world is more extraordinary and awe-inspiring than any fiction.

Walking with Dinosaurs: Prehistoric Planet
2013
45, 22

On a thrilling ride, we spin back in time to an extraordinary prehistoric world: Alaska 70 million years ago in the Cretaceous period: the last great flourish of the dinosaur era. Through the most ambitious CGI, we experience that world and meet an incredible variety of dinosaurs, most of whom have never been seen on the big screen before. They’re fighting, feeding, migrating, playing, hunting, just like scenes from a real wildlife film, but shot 70 million years ago. Science can take us so far but the evidence is incomplete. So how much do we know and how can we build on that with deduction and imagination to create a truly believable and life-like prehistoric world? In an elegant graphic world, we explore the complete picture of the dinosaurs’ world, but visually from the bones up, through answers to a series of ever more fascinating questions. The things you really want to know about dinosaurs.
