Einstein and Hawking: Unlocking The Universe

Client: BBC Studios

Network: The Science Channel

Relatively Clever

Liquid were asked by BBC studios to bring the esoteric and truly strange worlds of relativity, blackholes and quantum theory into life. The challenge was to communicate the science, whilst creating a unique and visually inventive style, with a “WOW” effect that stood out from the crowd. We developed a unique, mixed-media style that combined black and white photography, 3D particle animation, a neon palette and 3d sketched ‘drawings’. Liquid loves a bit of science, especially Gabriel Edwards, head of animation, who actually understands the quantum stuff. Like many factual series work, its our enthusiasm for the subject that is the key!
