Netflix Screens ‘Our Planet’ in Special Sneak Peek
By Pat Mullen
Netflix treated audiences to a special sneak peek of its upcoming nature doc series Our Planet yesterday in Toronto. Screening the first episode of the series at TIFF Lightbox, the streaming giant hosted a private event featuring series producer Keith Scoley in attendance with producer/director Adam Chapman. The two participated in an extended post-screening Q&A hosted by George Stroumboulopoulos.
The full house enjoyed the one-hour episode that set the tone for the series’ eye-opening call to action on climate change. The screening also featured a behind-the-scenes doc on the making of one of the episode’s centerpiece scenes, which used awesome aerial views (and patient cinematographers) to capture the collapse of a giant glacier wall.
The eight-part series tours the globe, spanning 50 countries with a crew of over 600 members. Our Planet examines the diversity of wildlife and natural habits that are at stake if humankind fails to act quickly and change its habits.
Check out some photos from the event, along with a new trailer released yesterday. (And subscribe today to read more about Our Planet in our upcoming issue!)
