Sky Zero “The Day The Moon Came To Earth” by Pete Candeland and LIGHT

Director Pete Candeland, his team from Partizan Studio, and new Bordeaux-based animation and VFX house LIGHT take a painterly approach to highlight the planet’s wonders and Sky’s pledge to be carbon-neutral by 2030.

The anchor of a campaign by agency Engine Creative, the film was inspired by the Overview Effect, the profound experience astronauts have when they see the earth from space for the first time.

Pete Candeland: “I found no trouble finding inspiration for this film, the world we live in is, of course, an inspiration above all else, and the beauty of our home is best enjoyed in person.

“So without traveling all over the world to enjoy each location, we found the next best lens to view the world through; landscape painting. We brought the painter’s point of view to this film, taking careful consideration of light, atmosphere, and color.

“It was an absolute pleasure to be involved and put my mind to something of such significance.”

“We wanted to do something timeless and create a poem through our visual storytelling and landscape painting that also felt fitting as an applicable message to our current situation. It was an absolute pleasure to be involved and put my mind to something of such significance.”

Antoine Moulineau, LIGHT founder and VFX supervisor: “I was moved by this project from the very first brief and can’t express how excited we were at LIGHT to take this on, especially within months of opening our studio’s doors.

“This project was also an opportunity for me to reunite creatively with Pete Candeland. I’m very proud of the work and dedication from our artists, particularly toward a project with such a crucial message to express.”
