Can Food Get Your Webby Vote?
National Geographic Channel’s Eat: The Story of Food offered gourmands and casual diners alike plenty of delicious content to whet their appetites for the 2014 Thanksgiving holiday. This tasty, six-course miniseries provided a fun, informative look at the foods that fuel the world’s population and offered insight on how they shaped mankind. With episodes dedicated to grains, fish, food revolutionaries, sugar, guilty pleasures, and meat, the series presented a calorie-free taste of the past, present, and future of what we eat.
To serve up a second helping of content, we took foodies and their many varied palates along on a visual narrative journey through the ages via their desktops and tablets. Each episode was accompanied by a veritable smorgasbord of interactive content that made stomachs rumble by highlighting important milestones in food history. From the first cave dwellers learning how to cook meat with fire to bioengineering the lab-grown beef patty of tomorrow, each topic was explored through multiple eras. When you see the mouth-watering animations that garnish these enticing pages, you’ll understand why this project is nominated for “Best Use of Animation or Motion Graphics.”
Neo-Pangea is particularly proud of this experience, and we’d be honored if you’d show your support for the project by voting now.
