Essential Hopscotch Wild Earth Volume 1.
Three visually-stunning films available for the first time as a box-set celebrating the grand spectacle of the natural worlds. Feature box office hits Travelling Birds and Microcosmos and the beautiful Earth from Above.
This perfect Father's Day gift encapsulates Mother Nature in all her glory.
Travelling Birds; taking over 2.5 million dollars at the Australian box-office, 'Travelling Birds' looks at the extraordinary odyssey of those that inhabit our skies. Encompassing three years of shooting on 35mm across more than 20 countries, the film looks at the incredible and somewhat mysterious world of bird-life migration, and is magical and mesmerising viewing. Jacque Perrin's awe-inspiring documentary takes cinematography to new heights; from spring in North American to summer in Antarctica, Travelling Birds transports the viewer to the lofty realm of bird migration with this spectacular avian world view.
Earth from Above: is a stunning portrait of our planet. French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertand has managed to capture the awe, natural wonder and raw spectacle of the world we inhabit. An ode to the vital reconciliation between man and nature, this film invited the viewer to reflect on the changes taking place on our planet. One by one, the stunning images reveal not only the beauty of the earth, but also the impact we ourselves have made on our fragile planet. Since the Earth from Above photographic exhibition first opened in Paris, 2000, it has toured more than thirty countries (including Australia) and been seen by over fifty million people.
Microcosmos: chronicles one full day in the lives of the many insects living in a French meadow. Extraordinary technology brings us up close to these tiny creatures, presenting them as larger than life characters whose quirks, pastimes and relationships are never less than riveting. A pair of stage beetles duel like titans
A magnificent army of worker ants race to stock their larder while avoiding a predatory pheasant
while nearby a caterpillar transforms into a butterfly in spectacular fashion. With its tiny cast of thousands, Microcosmos leaves no doubt that 'Mother Nature remains the greatest special effects wizard of all'
