Nat Geo- Brain Games

This year's Riff truly brought out a collaboration from some incredibly talented people. With studio shoot footage DP'd by Joel L and Jared Levy working in tandem with the Variable team, plus all of the b-roll shot by our friends at Evolve, sound design from Defacto Sound, music by Mahyar Bordbar, edit from Crave Media and animation from One Size in Amsterdam - it was truly a dream team project.
