How did your body become the complicated, quirky, amazing machine it is today? Anatomist Neil Shubin uncovers the answers in this three-part series for PBS which takes a new look at human evolution.

Over the course of a year, our team at Jellyfish Pictures collaborated with the filmmakers, Windfall Films and Tangled Bank Productions, to create a magical blend of 3D creature graphics and playful 2D animation, all held together with Jellyfish Pictures' coherent and distinctive art direction.
