Origins: The Journey of Humankind (2017)
How did we get here? How did humankind evolve from apes swinging in trees to astronauts walking on the moon? This eight-part time-travel adventure series for National Geographic delves deep into history to highlight pivotal "origin" moments that fundamentally and irrevocably created modern living. Host Jason Silva (BRAIN GAMES) guides viewers through a dazzling audio-visual portal to explore these events, such as the discoveries and applications of fire, medicine, money, and transportation, while experts across each field inject commentary. Award-winning feature film directors create the dramatic re-enactments’, and leading Visual Artist John Boswell designs and executes the eye-popping montages that whisk us through history. Origins boldly goes where no franchise has gone before to put the past together in such a way that viewers can never look at their future the same way again.
