Rise of the Vertebrates

David Attenborough embarks on an epic 500 million year journey to unravel the incredible rise of the vertebrates. He presents explosive new fossil evidence from a region he’s long dreamt of exploring – the frontier of modern paleontological research: China. The evolution of animals with backbones is one of the greatest stories in natural history.

ZOO produced approx 100 vfx shots ranging from photo-real reconstructions of extinct creatures to more explanatoory animations such as teh evolutionary timeline of life which formed a constant thread through the series.
