Unknown: Cave of Bones


Story Syndicate / Netflix

The new Netflix documentary Unknown: Cave of Bones explores an anthropologist's miraculous discovery of the homo naledi species in South Africa who practiced complex burial rituals.

We worked closely with Director Mark Mannucci to develop this unique and haunting animation style to help tell their story - a delicate hybrid between hand-crafted cel animation and 3D design. Scenes emerge from light and darkness with shapes and characters fading away into texture, channelling themes of death, burial, life and humanity.
