    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.

  4. For many years now I have been fortunate enough to live for part of each year on the shore of Lake Hallstatt in Upper Austria. This video is not about the town - but about the Lake itself.

    For day to night lapses and HDR I use Promote Control see - http://tinyurl.com/promotecontrol
    For motion control I use Emotimo (http://tinyurl.com/emotimo ) & Rhino Camera Gear ( rhinocameragear.com/)

    Hallstatt, the town, is famous for its production of salt, dating back to prehistoric times. It is a very popular summer tourist destination - so popular with the Chinese that they have actually built a replica of the town in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong.

    The whole area has Unesco World Heritage status.

    Lake Hallstatt has been referred to as the "melancholic lake", the "still fjord" and the "vision of a perfect mountain lake". It is a classic relic of the Ice Age and it has a total area of 8.58 square KM lying between the steep Obertraun and Hallstatt mountains and Bad Goisern. It is the fifth largest of the Salzkammergut lakes.

    Although this lake is one of the darker, colder, less inviting lakes of the region, as a photographer I decided to use this darkness and stillness as a device to reveal the true beauty of the lake through its mirror-like surface.

    This is my reflective homage to

    'THE LAKE'

    I was fortunate to collaborate on the music for 'The Lake' with the french composer Vincent Jacq see his work here: vincentjacq.com facebook.com/VincentJacq vimeo.com/user3179553
