Intrepid camera crews braved harsh nighttime conditions and used all the technical ingenuity at their disposal for “Night on Earth,” Netflix’s new nature documentary series that lets viewers see familiar animals after the sun goes down.
Per the official synopsis: “When the sun goes down, a new world awakes. New technology reveals wonders of the planet in a completely new light. Across the globe we discover a hidden side to the world’s greatest landscapes and animals.”
Creating the series required 60 separate shoots over one year in 30 different countries, tapping pretty much everyone who works professionally in the wildlife filmmaking community.
There’s also a fascinating behind-the-scenes stand-alone episode, “Shot in the Dark,” that details everything that went into several highlighted shoots.
