National Geographic Breakthrough — Power Grid

 

We were asked to animate a short segment of animation in an episode of one of National Geographic’s Breakthrough series. Each episode is a scientific documentary on a different topic.

I was thrilled to work on something so interesting and powerful, and National Geographic was a fantastic client that really let the artists do their thing.
