Dark Matters: Season 1
Wide Eyed Entertainment (UK) came to us with a simple question — could we do 140 minutes of Visual Effects for a show that told 3 unrelated bizarre science stories per episode and was entirely shot on green screen? And then could we believably create 18 different periods and locations throughout history where everything is animated except for what the actors touched? And by the way, could we also add a bunch of character animation? a digital monkey? All in 5 months?
We said YES!
Dark Matters: Season 2 & 3
With the overwhelming success of season 1, Discovery Science|US doubled its order and added seasons 2 and 3.
