    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.

  3. The Internet:

    It has taken over our lives and permeates every moment. It even has its own week.

    And it's the annual occurrence of Internet Week that made us think– have we become addicted to the internet? And if we have, what would happen if 5 digital natives were forced to go cold turkey for a week? Would it be reminiscent of a scene from Trainspotting? Or would they regress to some kind of IRL utopia?

    We followed these five internet addicts around for a week. This is the result.

  5. They don't say "Keep Portland Weird" for nothing! This town full of original art, friendly folks and environmentally conscious partisans, also has the largest floatation center in the West Coast. Growing in numbers, these centers allow floaters the chance to get rid of all sensory outputs by floating in body-temperature high-concentrated salt water.

    Hipsters, hippies and skeptics alike reap the benefits of these new age centers from their first to second visit. Silent Spectrum is a short documentary that explores two of these float centers (and their clients) in Portland, Oregon.
