Director Benjamin Owen began work on "Refracted Glory" in 2013, filming interviews and hummingbirds from all around the United States. He worked with other professionals, including two composers who together created an original score for the film.

The film includes in-depth interviews from scientists, engineers and experts, including:

  • Ken Ham – president and CEO of Answers in Genesis
  • Stuart Burgess – an author and professor of engineering design
  • James Gardner – director of Canopy Ministries and accomplished pilot
  • Andy McIntosh – professor emeritus of thermodynamics and combustion theory
  • Dr. David Menton – PhD in biology and bird expert
  • Bodie Hodge – mechanical engineer, speaker, writer and researcher
  • Christopher Witt, curator of birds, Museum of Southwestern Biology

"This film was not produced for the love of hummingbirds,” Owen said. “This film was produced out of love for my creator and redeemer, who lives. He has shown in both the content of this film and through the production of this film, that His word is true.”
