On the 40th anniversary of the famous ‘Blue Marble’ photograph taken of Earth from space, Planetary Collective presents a short film documenting astronauts’ life-changing stories of seeing the Earth from the outside – a perspective-altering experience often described as the Overview Effect.

The Overview Effect, first described by author Frank White in 1987, is an experience that transforms astronauts’ perspective of the planet and mankind’s place upon it. Common features of the experience are a feeling of awe for the planet, a profound understanding of the interconnection of all life, and a renewed sense of responsibility for taking care of the environment.

‘Overview’ is a short film that explores this phenomenon through interviews with five astronauts who have experienced the Overview Effect. The film also features insights from commentators and thinkers on the wider implications and importance of this understanding for society, and our relationship to the environment.

Why I shoot Lights at night

Why I shoot Lights at night

A mini doc, though perhaps unusually told. It’s about my recent trip to Norway, some of the same footage as my previous video but this one explains a little about why I go away once a year to film something tricky.

Thanks to Kessler for making the Pocket Dolly, electraDRIVE motor and Oracle controller for the timelapse dolly shots. Canon for making the 5D mark 3, great for landscape low light work. Panasonic for making the GH2 with it’s lovely video quality in such a small camera and for being discrete enough to photograph out the plane window really easily. Final thanks to Tom Lowe at Dreamcore for Timescapes which inspired me to get out there and get some good timelapses.
