Ingenio Films LLC was founded in 2015 in Los Angeles, with offices in England, Spain and Italy. The focus of Ingenio Films is the production and distribution of high quality historical documentary films and series, as well as having a commercial department. The company was created by Michael Donnellan, former Creative Director and VFX Supervisor for studios such
as 20th Century Fox and Disney. In 2015, a unique partnership was formed between Ingenio Films and Merlin Burrows, a U.K. based satellite scanning research company involved in the identification of ancient structures submerged in water and soil. The purpose of Ingenio Films is to document a series of over 400 new discoveries around the world. These discoveries include shipwrecks, temples, cities, and even traces of ancient civilizations.
The work of Ingenio Films has recently garnered a great deal of attention with the massively successful premier of the series "Atlatica", which received a ten minute standing ovation at the South International Series Festival in October. It will also be featured this month at the Miami Film Festival. Atlantica is currently in distribution and has a foreseeable release date later this year. The platform will be announced soon.
