Kelvin Jones 'Call You Home' by Joe Connor

Cat Velez - 26th Aug 2015

Yup, that really is a TV in space, for real. Joe Connor has conjured this remarkable video for Kelvin Jones's heartwarming song Call You Home, by sending a vintage Sony TV into orbit on a special balloon provided by Sent Into Space, surrounded by GoPros so as to capture this spectacular footage of Jones' performance 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.

It does, in fact, look so impressive that you may think it's was done with greenscreen and FX. Not so - as the moment when moulding on one of the TVs flies off, at pretty much the point where the earth ends and space begins, confirms...


"This is a really special promo for me.  Anyone that knows me knows that I'm obsessed with space, I've always wanted to go - it looks like a right laugh up there.  As soon as Alexa [Haywood, Joe's rep] sent me this track by Kelvin I knew that I had to focus a promo on the only 'Home' we have, the Earth itself.  This strange floating blue ball in the middle of space that keeps us all safe.  I just thought after all that hard work looking after us, it'd be cool to make a promo that celebrated the Earth. 

"Right from the beginning me, [producer] Matt Clyde, Alexa, and [Sony commissioner] Dan Millar all wanted to do this for real and with the help of the guys at Sent Into Space, I'm pleased to say that all TVs in this music video were harmed as they crash-landed back to earth. We sent the TV off from Snowdonia and it landed in Bury, Manchester - taking in my hometown of Warrington on the way which can be seen in the promo. I'm proud to say that the TV got 99.997% above the atmosphere, just 0.003% below the Armstrong line - surely the highest TV in history right? 

"Once again cheers to Sent Into Space for helping me out, and cheers to Matt Clyde for not laughing me away when I asked him to produce this one."
