Jellyfish Pictures Portfolio Spillover 10

Jellyfish Pictures nominated for an Emmy

We are proud to announce that Jellyfish Pictures has been nominated for a News and Documentary Emmy Award in the category ‘Outstanding Art Direction and Graphic Design’. Our work has been recognised on a PBS documentary called Spillover – Zika, Ebola & Beyond. The show was produced in collaboration with Tangled Bank Studios, who we worked with on the 2014 series Your Inner Fish, for which Jellyfish won an Emmy in the same category.

Jellyfish’s Creative Director Tom Brass was excited to work with Tangled Bank again and is hoping to repeat our awards success, he said "Spillover tells an important story about the horrific outbreaks of Ebola in West Africa and Zika in South America. Our motion graphics team rose to the challenge of creating animation that was hard-hitting, sensitive to the appalling human toll of the outbreaks and conveyed the complex science of deadly viruses. Our work was an innovative blend of 2D keyframe animation and 3D motion graphics, which told a complex story in a highly engaging way.
