The Rise of Humans

Yuval Noah Harari’s groundbreaking novel, “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” inspired, and informed millions of people worldwide, including us at Osmosis Films. We decided to exercise our creative muscles by translating his 30-minute TED Talk about the book into a spellbinding origami-inspired film that brings the spirit of his work to life.

Artistic Approach

As a team, we worked to develop the look and feel of the piece, imagining a progression from simplistic black and white paper cut-out animation to a palette increasingly dominated by color and light and dynamic networks, representing the key factor responsible for the dominance of homo sapiens: our ability to collaborate flexibly and in very large numbers.

We alone can create and believe fictional stories.
