Our Planet: CGI

Attenborough’s documentaries are renowned for displaying the most overwhelming images from our reality.

Our Planet makes no exceptions.

Visually, everything the audiences sees has been captured in real life by the crew. Of course, the project took years to develop, but this fact makes it so worth it.

How did they do it?

Our Planet benefit greatly from an unbelievably skilled crew.

The creative team made the most of such equipment as infrared cameras, drones, high definition cameras and a range of lenses; these allowing the team to shoot from a great distance with clarity in some cases.
