His movies include teenage horror classic Massacre at Central High (1976), punk rock musical Population: 1 (1986), Habitat (1997) and Hysteria (1998). He also directed the music video for Supertramp's "Brother Where You Bound". In October 2008, Daalder's film Population: 1, which features Tomata du Plenty of The Screamers, was released on DVD. He also wrote and directed a documentary on Bas Jan Ader entitled Here is Always Somewhere Else, which was released on DVD in November 2008.
At the end of 2007, Rene Daalder launched SpaceCollective in collaboration with Folkert Gorter. The community driven website, where information and ideas are being exchanged about the current state of our species, our planet and the universe, has over 2500 contributors. A growing number of universities, architecture and design schools are conducting projects on the website.
In 2008 Rene proposed a new genre of art called “Gravity Art” based on the idea of gravity as a medium. Bas Jan Ader is seen as the founder of this genre for the themes of his work of falling and letting go.
