Thursdays Are !mpossible on Discovery Channel
"This project was a prime example of how we were able to use our talent and software in creative and resourceful ways, and essentially pull off mini movie-style effects in a short amount of time," concluded Jacobson. "Discovery's shows are so diverse. From a 3D animator's perspective, they are dream projects to work on since there are so many opportunities to use our design, previs, modeling, character and visual effects skills. Discovery has been great to work with. They love what we've done for them and have given us the chance to show that small shops like !mpossible can execute a very high caliber of work."
The upcoming promos follow the theme of "Conspiracy Thursdays," which draws viewers into thought-provoking worlds of government cover-ups and hidden mysteries. The final month of promos will highlight prehistoric and ancient civilizations themes. Promos having already aired celebrated the following different themes: Killer Thursdays "Ants" and "Squid," Turbo Thursdays "Pistons" and "Wind Tunnel" and, finally, Phenomathon Thursdays "Saucer" and "Eyes."
