Following “Nature’s Thread” for Mountain Men

LA prodco/design house Roger and the CG crew at Lunar Animation in the UK weave together an obsessively detailed CG promo for History Channel’s “Mountain Men.”

From Roger: “Roger and History have been teaming up on Mountain Men for many years and continue to try and find new ways to represent the show.

“‘Nature’s Thread’ tells the story of how when living in nature everything is connected. We created 3D handcrafted characters and environments made entirely of threaded materials, from yarn, cotton, and burlap.”
