Described as “An around-the-world journey celebrating our sacred Earth; six-years in the making … seven continents … twenty-four countries,” Terra Sacra — the six-minute film that you are about to see, below — is an unforgettable, time-lapse journey to our planet’s ancient monuments and most remote landscapes.
Photographed and edited by Sean F. White, with an original score by Roy Milner, the film’s images are divided into three acts: Primordial Earth, Past Meets Present, and Eternal Universe. For a shot-by-shot breakdown, go to www.terra-sacra.com.
You’ll recognize many of the scenes from Terra Sacra (which is Latin for “sacred Earth”) because you’ve probably visited several of them yourself on a Natural Habitat Adventures’ trip, such as:
- St. Andrews Bay and Fortuna Bay, South Georgia, Antarctica
- The Kimberley, Australia
- Paro and Thimphu, Bhutan
- Pantanal, Brazil
- Angkor Wat and Siem Reap, Cambodia
- Hraunfossar, Iceland
- El Karama and Laikipia Plateau, Kenya
- Baobab Alley and spiny forests, Madagascar
- Camps in Mongolia
- Arthur’s Pass and Lake Wanaka, South Island, New Zealand
- Machu Picchu, Peru
If you haven’t yet seen much of this beautiful world for yourself, this film is sure to inspire you.
So go. Now.
