We offer "Experiential" or "Slow TV", where viewers are allowed to develop a deeper relationship with natural scenery. The pace is calming and peaceful.
BlueMarvel segments are done with natural sound and no narration. It's different. And many people tell us it's refreshing and mesmerizing.
We invite you to experience nature as captured by our lens. Take a few moments to pause, reflect, and connect with the natural world.
Is available for licensed use via broadcast, video-on-demand, advertisements, and closed circuit video systems, such as those used in the hospitality and healthcare industries as well as office settings.
Includes sunrises, sunsets, storms, wildlife, and scenic vistas from stunning and evocative locations around the world. We visit the plains and mountains of the American west, Alaska, the coasts of Hawaii and Maine, and the peaks of New Zealand.
Is recorded in dazzling 1080p video format with crisply recorded 5.1 surround sound. The pace is slower than what you may normally view on television and natural sound replaces a narrator or music.
Our missions is to deliver high quality experiential programming of nature’s events at nature’s pace. The best way to experience nature is to go outside. If that’s not an option, BlueMarvel presents an alternative way to experience nature via crisp, vivid images and sounds.
David Conover is the founder of Compass Light, parent company of BlueMarvel, which has produced over 80 hours of award-winning broadcast television. In 2003 David and his team developed a new format of television, called “Experiential TV" and subsequently “Slow TV.” This is a radically observational and carefully crafted aesthetic is exemplified by the nature series Conover’s team created in 2004, called Sunrise Earth. BlueMarvel content was inspired by the success of Sunrise Earth in which not a single word is spoken and features picturesque remote locations as the sun comes up.
Compass Light, parent company of BlueMarvel, coordinates production of non-fiction programming, from story development and shooting to editing and distribution.
In addition to Sunrise Earth, productions have included work for Discovery Channel Quest (Cracking the Ocean Code with Craig Venter, Quest for Captain Kidd with Mel Gibson), The Science Channel, Animal Planet, HD Theater, National Geographic Channel (Sea Stories episodes "Search for the Giant Lobster" and "Night Birth" with Sylvia Earle), as well as programs about Viking history and commercial fisheries for PBS.
We're great fans, as you can tell. Thank you again for the work you have done. You may call it experiential TV, but we call it excellent TV.
I sat down and watched the elegance of the tempo of time. I do recommend it highly!
I have to admit that I actually heard myself saying aloud, "wow!" more than once as I watched this immaculate presentation.
It is the perfect combination of visuals, sound, and even lighting. The tv screen offers a quiet gentle glow without the flashing of different lighting and colors that regular television produce.
I set down my coffee and just sat there without moving… I was absolutely mesmerized.
