In celebration of Disneynature’s recently released Wings of Life on Blu-ray Combo Pack, and just in time for springtime weather, we are pleased to team up with Disney and offer you a wing-tastic giveaway to post on your site!
Wings of Life came out April 16, 2013 on Blu-ray Combo Pack, Digital and On Demand. This up close look at the world of winged creatures and their life-sustaining relationship with flowers is directed by Louie Schwartzberg (“America’s Heart & Soul”) and narrated by Academy Award® winner Meryl Streep.
I haven’t had a chance to watch it yet. I really want to sit down with my daughter and watch it because she loves butterflies right now. She wants to stand still enough for a wild butterfly to come and sit on her finger. I was watching her the other day as she slowly walked up to a flower and then stood still by the butterfly and then of course her brother came up and when RARWWW. So yeah, I know watching this is going to excite her even more.
“In the chaos and craziness of our day-to-day lives, few of us stop to consider what’s happening behind the scenes in nature that makes our lives possible,” said Streep. “This film is a stunning adventure that literally takes flight alongside all kinds of winged creatures—butterflies, bees and bats—each working hard to pollinate our planet.”
Said Schwartzberg, “For me, the joy of doing this film is to be able to explore worlds that humans can’t easily experience—bats sipping nectar in the middle of the desert at night, orchid bees expertly manipulated by a bucket orchid, exotic hummingbirds flying like airborne dancers, and a clustering monarch colony with millions of butterflies. I hope to share the spectacle of nature and to spark in others the sense of wonder I have about the natural world.”
Employing multiple cameras, both time-lapse and high-speed cinematography and extraordinary patience (while nature took its time unfolding), filmmakers shot on location in more than a dozen areas, ranging from the El Rosario Preserve in Michoacán, Mexico, to Organ Pipe Cactus National Monument Park in Arizona. “Wings of Life” features extraordinary imagery shot with digital cameras—one capable of frame rates of up to 1500 frames per second, and the use of a pinhole lens, which allowed the cameraman to get within millimeters of an insect subject while retaining a clear view of the background. The resulting imagery—intimate and breathtaking—is brought to life for audiences through spectacular high-definition picture and sound quality.
