Winged Migration (2001)

Storyline:

Jacques Perrin (Microcosmos) presents this dramatically beautiful documentary about bird migratory patterns, featuring breathtaking photography and hypnotic music. The film covers seven continents during four seasons, highlighting species both unique and common. From Puffins in Iceland, Whooper Swans in Japan, Bald Eagles in Alaska, Flamingos in Kenya, Macaw in Peru, Geese in Nepal, and plenty of Cranes and Storks in the director's native France, Winged Migration is literally a tour of the world from a bird's eye view. Filmed over the course of three year's time, the production for the movie was extensive to say the least. Using a crew of over 450 people broken up into five teams, new photographic techniques were invented specifically for the purpose of filming flocks of birds in flight. Balloon, helicopter, helicopter model, remote controlled glider, traditional glider, delta plane, and ultra-light motorized aircraft are the flying devices used to achieve the film's incredible camera angles. In fact, because birds are not afraid of the delta plane, photographers were able to fly alongside flocks, sometimes filming birds as they gazed into the camera's lense while also keeping in focus the dramatic landscape unfolding below. Winged Migration takes viewers on a unique journey soaring over the Earth as few films have ever done before.
