About Metamorph Films

Metamorph Films is a film production company based out of Sacramento, California, owned by Kathy Kasic.

Kathy Kasic is a director, a cinematographer and an Assistant Professor at California State University in Sacramento. Kathy's artistic vision and passion for adventure have brought her to film off the bow of a ship, underwater in free-flowing mountain rivers, and to an unexplored subglacial lake in Antarctica. She has shown her work at international festivals, museums, galleries and broadcast on television, including BBC, Discovery, PBS and National Geographic. Prior to working at CSUS, she taught film production for six years at Montana State University and was the founding director of the Center for the Communication of Science. Until recently, Kathy was the Director of Film Arts with Tippet Rise Art Center, a world-renowned 10,000-acre venue for large-scale sculpture and classical music, where she directed over 80 short films. Many years before that, and before the world of filmmaking transfixed her, Kathy was a biologist who recorded the vocalizations of a small nocturnal frog found only in the Amazon. Her core artistic practice is on the development of conceptual films that emphasize an engagement with the senses. She believes that filmmaking is a way to give voice to what is not voiced, to see and hear more deeply, to draw out unexplained perspectives, and to foster compassion across cultures.

Kasic’s latest film, 3600 Feet Beneath the Ice, is a feature-length documentary about an international team of scientists who explore a subglacial lake buried 3,600 feet beneath the Antarctic ice to reveal hidden truths about our planet’s dynamic past. As they struggle against the beautiful ferocity of the ice and wind, they consider how our relationship with nature – and with one another -- will impact humanity’s future and the future of all life on our rapidly changing planet.
