60 second adventures: Behind the scenes

Updated Friday 8th April 2016

Go behind the scenes with the 60-second adventures team to learn how OU academic content is transformed into informative and entertaining short animations.

Narrated by David Mitchell, the 60 Second Adventures animation series began in 2011 with ’60 Second Adventures in Thought’ exploring paradoxes and thought experiments such as The Grandfather paradox and Schrodinger’s Cat. Since then the series has explored economics, religion, astronomy and now microgravity.

This short video features commentary from writer Jon Hunter, Senior Lecturer Helen Fraser and Senior Producer Catherine Chambers on the making of the Microgravity series.
