Este é um projeto independente com o objetivo de abrir os olhos para o simples fato que para começar uma mudança, é preciso primeiro acreditar que ela é possível. O mundo é de todos nós e precisa do nosso otimismo para que o ímpeto de mudar se transforme em uma mudança real, e acreditamos que isso só é possível começando por uma transformação interna. Mudando nosso jeito de pensar, mudamos nosso jeito de agir e agindo mudamos o mundo. Ainda dá tempo.
(This is an independent project aiming to make people realize that to make a change, we must first believe that it’s possible. The world belongs to all of us and needs our optimism so that our will to change becomes a real change, and we believe this is only possible when starting from within. By changing our way of thinking, we change our way of acting and by acting we change the world. There is still time.)

Explosions In The Sky - Postcard From 1952
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.

"Slow" marine animals show their secret life under high magnification. Corals and sponges build coral reefs and play crucial roles in the biosphere, yet we know almost nothing about their daily lives. These animals are actually very mobile creatures. However their motion is only detectable at different time scales compared to ours and requires time lapses to be seen.
Make sure you watch the video on a large screen. This clip is displayed in Full HD, yet the source footage (or the whole clip), is available in UltraHD 4k resolution for media productions.
The answer to a common question: yes, colors are "real" and not exaggerated by digital enhancement. We have only applied basic white balance correction. However, we used specialized lights to mimic the underwater ambient spectrum. When photographers use white light (artificial spectrum) on corals, they simply miss the vast majority of colours. Corals have spectrum-sensitive colouration due to fluorescent pigments.
The duration of sequences varied from 20 minutes to 6+ hours.
=== Technical details ===
To make this little clip we took 150000 shots. Why so many? Because macro photography involves shallow depth of field. To extend it, we used focus stacking and deconvolution algorithms. Each frame of the video is actually a stack that consists of 3-12 shots.
Just the intro and the last scene are regular real-time footage. One frame required about 10 minutes of processing time (raw conversion + stacking + deconvolution in some scenes). Unfortunately, the success rate was very low due to copious technical challenges and we spent almost 9 long months to get it right.
- Multiple Canon DLSRs (1 camera died)
- Lenses: Canon MP-E 65 mm lens, and a custom photomacrography rig (custom lenses are better for this type of task)
- Lights: adjustable custom-spectrum lamps (3 different models) - they were needed to recreate natural underwater illumination.
- several motorized stages, including StackShot for focus stacking. StackShot, is sadly not 100% reliable for long-term time lapses.
- multiple computers to process thousands of 22+ Mpx raw images and perform focus stacking (an old laptop died on that mission after 3 weeks of continuous processing).
