Painting the Phagocytes

Behind the scenes at 'Inside the Human Body' on the BBC.

One of the strangest and most challenging characters in the show: the phagocyte (your white cells).  To me they looking like guinea pigs made out of jelly, with random tentacles.  Fascinating creatures.  I learned a whole lot about the human body during this production.

My job was to make the painted storyboards for the CGI sequences, to set the style and the framing for what would then be built in the 3D environments at Rushes and Jellyfish. An incredible project, and I loved that the team wanted everything to be seen as an incredible epic landscape, with a heavy eye to the artistic representation of the science.
