2012: The Beginning

Motion Graphics · Animation

This documentary examines what the Mayan calendars and texts really have to say about December 21, 2012 and why so many people see this as the end of the world. Using illustrations inspired by Mayan art, we developed several animations to explain how their calendars work and why there is so much attention paid to that date.
