  • EXPAND THIS BOX FOR MORE INFORMATION!A short film based on current conditions in Chernobyl & Pripyat. Please note, I am an amateur documentary filmmaker and this documentary was made on no budget. The only cost involved were just the travel expenses to the Ukraine.Follow my next projects on Facebook - Directors Cut - frequently asked questions:Where can I get the music? Purchase it here now! - is that bashing sound around the 15 minute mark? The foundations for the new shelter are being bashed into the ground as the soil is too dangerous and radioactive to dig up. The new shelter will cover the crumbling one that currently covers reactor 4. The new shelter will be completed in 2015.Was I exposed to lots of radiation? In short, no. My dosage of radiation would of been about the same as I would have received on a long haul flight. You also get checked for contamination on the way out of the zone.Did I have to wear any protective clothing? No, but you are not allowed to wear shorts or short sleeve shirts. You must wear long trousers and jumpers, boots or other hard wearing shoes. Open shoes like sandals are not allowed.How did I get access to Chernobyl? You can arrange a visit through a company called Solo-East. Google them! A private tour like I took costs $500 a day. I recommend 2-3 days if you can afford it. You will see hardly anything in just one day. Unfortunately, you are no longer allowed inside buildings.What camera did I use? It was a Canon 7D with a Canon 17-40mm L, Canon 17-85mm, Canon 70-300mm & Sigma 10-22mm. Sound was captured with a Sennheiser wireless radio mic and recorded on a Roland R05.What did you edit this video with? Adobe Premiere CS5 and After Effects CS5.

    What I think is just great about the Internet, is that you don't need to have a budget of millions from Hollywood, in order to make an awesome movie or documentary. Great job!

    Everyone who visits that hospital talks about the firefighters but I am wondering what happened to the nurses/ staff that handled those clothes. Someone had to carry all that right after exposure when it was at its most radioactive into the basement.

    10 years ago, every other comment would've been about Call of Duty.
    Today, every other comment is about HBO.

    Problem with video. In a lot of places the background music drowns out what is being said.

    The West: "There has been an explosion at a nuclear power plant in the Soviet Union."
    Russia: "Nothing to see here, go about your business."

    The guy that captured the images from the helicopter is dead. EDit: think I read this somewhere. Did see a video interview of the guy though. Many of the helicopter pilots died, as well as many other heros. They went in without protection just to hurry up the process of enclosing the melt to protect others.

    A very educational anti professional documentary. My partners a Cameraman for GTV9 in Melbourne Aust, and is extremely impressed with the camera work too! The incidental music is spot on so why hasnโ€™t this awesome doco been seen on TV?
    Thank you for an informative and very moving upload! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ‘
