Upstream is a collaboration between filmerman Dan Hunter and Australian National University’s Dr Will Grant and Luke Menzies. Basically it’s a documentary about why people no longer trust science, why this sucks, and what needs to be done to fix it. It was funded through an awesome Pozible Campaign and should hit screens in June.
I’m contributing motion graphics and illustration to the doco, the basic idea being that none of the these elements should be anything like your usual science documentary. Hence it features scientist cats, banjo playing horses and a nice loud colour palette.
Executive Producers: Luke Menzies & Will Grant
