'EARTH' the feature-length movie is a companion piece to the series PLANET EARTH, the TV series.
BDH Creative meticulously created views of the Earth from space using NASA satellite imagery and height information gathered within the DeepEXR format. BDH rendered the models in MAYA and ARNOLD, finally composited in NUKE.
EARTH was released in cinemas with a total worldwide box office revenue exceeding $100 million, making it the second-highest grossing nature documentary of all time behind March of the Penguins.
A sequel, titled EARTH: One Amazing Day, narrated by Robert Redford and written by leading screenwriter Frank Cottrell-Boyce, who has previously worked on the London 2012 Olympic opening ceremony, is scheduled for release in 2017.
