“Home” offers viewers rare, breathtaking and impressive imagery. The aerial footage shows just how much impact mankind has on our planet, while the narrator refers to many facts and figures. The last part of the film focusses on how we are already dealing with the Earth’s resources in a more responsible way. With more images and facts, this part of the film not only moves, but also motivates the viewer. The classical and world music are of high quality and make for an extraordinary soundtrack.
“Home” was filmed in various stages due to the expanse of the areas portrayed. Taking over eighteen months to complete the film, director Yann Arthus-Bertrand and a camera man, a camera engineer and a pilot flew in a small helicopter through various regions in over fifty countries. The filming was done using high-definition Cineflex cameras which were suspended from a gyro-stabilized sphere from rails on the base of the helicopter.
