Torrey Pines Landscape Co. nods at Synchronicity

We absolutely love synchronicity. Having just attended the 'Create a Butterfly Garden' seminar, isn't it awesome that the newest IMAX addition is 'The Flight of the Butterflies'!

"The iconic monarch butterfly is a true marvel of nature. It weighs less than a penny, yet it makes one of the longest migrations on Earth across a continent, with pinpoint navigational accuracy, to a secluded place it has never been. In FLIGHT OF THE BUTTERFLIES, you’ll join the monarchs' perilous and extraordinary journey while following an intrepid scientist’s 40-year search to find the monarchs’ secret hideaway. Featuring breathtaking cinematography, an award-winning production team, a true scientific mystery, and hundreds of millions of real butterflies, FLIGHT OF THE BUTTERFLIES soars on the giant IMAX Dome screen.

The Making of the Film
The award-winning production team, including Oscar® winner Peter Parks, followed the year-long migration cycle of the monarch butterflies, from Canada, through the United States, to remote 10,000-foot-high peaks in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico, and back, through generations.
In order to access these protected areas, the team worked closely with government officials and nature conservation groups to obtain permits and permissions to film in these sanctuaries. The team then had the challenge of transporting IMAX cameras and massive rigs up the mountainside. The team filmed in the butterfly sanctuaries in 2011 and 2012 and was able to capture the awe and wonder of them through extraordinary cinematography."
