The Blue Planet (2001)

Concept and creative process

Opening titles for a series in which David Attenborough narrated a natural history of the world’s oceans. The titles for ‘The Blue Planet’ showcased an edited montage of some of the extraordinary ocean and underwater cinematography from the series. It began and ended encapsulated and framed within the sphere of our blue planet, with the iconic image of the rip curl wave frozen in space above the series title.
