"The Animal Within"
Autentic Distribution has commissioned the factual series "The Animal Within" from Go Button Media. Produced in 4K, the 6x60 show looks under the skin of some of nature’s most perfect machines and investigates how centuries of beta testing have created incredible over-achievers in the animal world.
"The Animal Within" is executive produced by Daniel Oron and Natasha Ryan from Go Button Media and Alexandra Böhm, Head of International Co-production at Autentic. It delivers later this autumn, it will premiere on Spiegel TV Wissen in December and will be distributed internationally (exc Canada) by Autentic Distribution.
Daniel Oron, Director, and Executive Producer on the series says: “We are thrilled to have been commissioned for Autentic’schannels. The business is known internationally for its commitment to high-quality documentary productions and we are extremely proud to partner with the team on this exhilarating new series. 'The Animal Within' travels the world to bring new insights to unexpected species that nature has been busy perfecting over the ages – from hippo chemists who manufacture their own sunscreen to ant architects who create complex structures. As humans, we think we have all the answers, but we will electrifyingly demonstrate that nature so often has the upper hand and can serve as the most experienced of teachers.”
Across six episodes that blend stunning natural history with CGI and the latest science, "The Animal Within" examines the most amazing and puzzling characteristics of nature’s ultimate machines, seeking to solve those mysteries of engineering still eluding our human grasp.
