View from above: Watch UK's natural land diminish in 100 seconds

In 2018 Dan Raven-Ellison traveled the length of Great Britain with the mission of discovering what the country really looks like from above. The UK in 100 Seconds shows houses, bogs, fields, forests, and pastures with each second representing a percentage of land use. Currently, one in 7 species in the UK is at risk of extinction, so the film asks: can more space be created for wildlife? In July of 2019 London became the first National Park City.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the world and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. To submit a film for consideration, please email sfs@natgeo.com. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
