Project: One Strange Rock (National Geographic)
Client: Framestore/National Geographic
Director: Neil Scholes
Last year I had a chance to help framestore push the look for brand new National Geographic's documentary on the beginnings of our planet. I was designing different sequences showing how the moon, earth and life on earth was created. I learned a lot and deepend my science knowledge, such a fun and educative project!
This artwork carries in itself a brilliant and painful truth.
I don't know, what's more shocking, how the creation and destruction that is how close to each other, or that how art able to show the beautiful side of the most terrible things.
In other hand, if we approach from a scientific point of view, we can see that, the currently technology and scientific knowledge can't help, if this would happens again. In a few moments, the humanity would disappear, just like the dinosaurs. (If we look this positively , it would have at least two moons of the earth. Whatever its significance. O_o)
Was there a strong emotion or thought while creating the picture? For example: respect.
For my part, thank you this beautiful, thoughtful and really impressive picture.
