FOR ALL MANKIND
For the second season of “For All Mankind”, yU+co was approached to visualize an alternate history education to set up the show’s narrative. This propulsive sequence gave much-needed historical context to the viewers for the time jump of the second season. The show takes place in an alternate 1980s and we structured our sequence around the use of a microfiche machine. Rather than directly creating microfiche in CG, we wanted our sequence to be able to take advantage of the Z access as well, bobbing and weaving forward and backward through headlines, clips, and photos of this alternate history. We had a lot of fun working with the creative team to come up with off-kilter and interesting ‘historical’ moments that would populate the sequence and establish the world.
