This is pretty cool: director Joe Connor sent a pair of televisions up to the edge of space by balloon to film his music video for Kelvin Jones’ song Call You Home.
Here’s what he had to say about it:
Yup, that really is a TV in space, for real. I created this video by sending a vintage Sony TV into orbit on a weather balloon provided by Sent Into Space, surrounded by cameras so as to capture this spectacular footage hovering above the Big Blue Marble itself.
More precisely, it took two launches - both from Snowdonia in Wales, with two identical TVs, with each launch providing the opportunity to rig the GoPros in different positions.
This was quite a bit of fun to watch - a vintage television hanging over the earth - hitting 34km before coming back down.
