    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.

    Κομμάτια από ξύλο, αγάπη, μεράκι, τεχνογνωσία και 299 ώρες εργασίας συμπυκνωμένα σε κάτι περισσότερο από 3 λεπτά.

    Η σειρά ‘The Art of Making’ φιλοδοξεί να αναδείξει και να προβάλλει τους συναναθρώπους μας, οι οποίοι πέραν από το πνεύμα του καιρού, την απαισιοδοξία και την μοιρολατρία, επιμένουν να ονειρεύονται και να δημιουργούν με πάθος και φαντασία. Αυτοί οι εραστές της γνώσης και της συγκίνησης επιχειρούν να συνδυάσουν την οργάνωση και την ακρίβεια της επιστήμης με την κομψότητα, την λεπτότητα και την επινοητικότητα της τέχνης. Η προσφορά τους ανεκτίμητη και τους ευχαριστούμε.

  4. The world is fascinating. People and cultures inspire us. Sadly, the fast paced lifestyles of our generation result in many not taking the necessary step back to soak in the existing world around us. Our goal with this film is to help viewers further appreciate and take notice of the beauty in life & culture that lies within our world...

    ...so the next time you notice something that strikes you as interesting, stop for a second, start powering on your camera, think about why it's unique, and snap the shot before you miss it. Life is extraordinary. Embrace it.
