Our Planet: Netflix
David Attenborough’s new documentary nature series landed on Netflix on Friday, April 5th, 2019.
It’s brought to us by the same team responsible for the amazing Blue Planet and Planet Earth.
This latest effort was filmed over four years and across fifty different countries. It also boasts a phenomenal soundtrack. But, is it all authentic?
What does Twitter think?
Since Our Planet became available to stream, some have taken to Twitter to ponder the authenticity of the series.
Some of it is definitely hard to believe…
The new David Attenborough doc on Netflix OUR PLANET is so ridiculously beautifully well shot i thought it was cgi. It’s unlike any other doc ive seen. How did they do this?

The footage in Netflix’s Our Planet is seriously stunning. You almost wouldn’t believe it’s real, that such breathtaking wonders exist, it looks like CGI. Especially to a through-and-through city girl like me, who’s never seen a desert or snow.
I kept thinking of Psalm 8:3-4

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.
It’s truly a remarkable achievement of documentary filmmaking.
