SYFY25: Origin Stories, hosted by Adam Savage, is a nostalgic celebration of all things science fiction. In this podcast series Adam sits down with creators, thought-leaders, and celebrity fans to discuss the moments, people, and milestones that have changed the genre universe forever. From revealing personal anecdotes to deep philosophical discussions, there’s something for every fan. Guests include genre heavyweights from Chris Hardwick, Frank Oz, and Kevin Smith, to Neil Gaiman, DC Fontana and Ron Moore, among many others.
This is a project we helped the creative team with at 72&Sunny in Los Angeles. The ask was to create 8 animated short films that play under 1 minute cut downs of the creators & thought-leaders in and around sci fi as a genre. This one was with Ron Moore.
The Creative Strategy.
For this particular film, it all started with this one frame. Ron talked about all kinds of things in and around filmmaking. It would have been easier to be stylistically literal to Sci-fi but there was a childlike wonder to what he's describing. Because of that, we chose a much more school book illustration style but with a magical glow they screams 'outer space wonder.'
