COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey

Part I: Ancient Mesopotamia

I don’t know how many of you caught this, but I totally had a little segment in last night’s episode of COSMOS, “The Immortals”! It’s about a tremendous drought that destroyed the ancient civilzations of Mesopotamia! FOX approached me about doing this little piece a few months ago and I sprung at the opportunity! If you didn’t know, I am a big fan of SCIENCE and I was so pumped to be a part of this incredible series and to have animated a piece to Neil DeGrasse Tyson’s (my hero!) narration and Ann Druyan’s writing! I am so thankful to Kara Vallow, Brent Woods and Allie Crane for inviting me to take part in this project and being so supportive throughout the production! Also I had an amazing crew to help me create the animation - long-time collaborator Stephane Coedel who was the lead Animator & Compositor, the incredible Stephen Vuillemin who did character animation, and my amazing sister Emily Haidri who produced the spot for us! A real dream job!

Here is a LINK to the full episode if you want to watch (our segment starts around 26:40)!
