This film about dinosaur footprints was made using only an Apple iPhone 6 with a cheap microphone plugged into it. The purpose was to demonstrate that you don't need complex and expensive equipment to make a short and possibly useful educational film. The subject is dinosaur footprints that are found in trackways around the world. How can we know whether or not any footprint is real or just an erosional feature being mistaken for a real footprint? What if someone decided to chisel a footprint into rock? How can we tell the difference between something like this and a genuine footprint?

Design In Fossil Organisms
Have you ever had the opportunity to examine a real fossil? Maybe you have seen dinosaur bones or shells encased in rock. Do these remains of once living organisms look less designed than the creatures we find living around us? How might the same engineering challenges faced by living creatures have been solved by these ancient creatures? What do the conclusions we draw tell us about the Creator of these ancient yet elegant organisms? Shelley Quinn and Tim Standish, PhD
