About This Project


The year is 2033 and the the first ever human mission to Mars is underway, in this RadicalMedia produced six part series for National Geographic.

Executive produced by Brian Grazer and Ron Howard, the series combines contemporary documentary interviews with drama of astronauts exploring the red planet.

Lola partnered with Framestore to complete a variety of shots for episodes 3 and 4. Moroccan shoot locations were transformed into Martian vistas, CG visors added to the astronauts helmets and exploratory CG drones were animated flying over the alien terrain.
