Jump’s creative minds help C4 documentary on Brain Surgeons

Blast! Films approached us with a wonderful brief for their latest documentary, Brain Surgeons: Between Life And Death.

They wanted help to explain the inner workings of the human brain and how they make us who we are. We were given MRI scans of the featured patients and tasked with making them beautiful, elegant and not too sciency.

Using bespoke software to decode the complex MRIs, we created drifting, beautiful journeys into the depths of the brain. The sequences reveal tumours, the routes the surgeons took to reach them and the parts of the brain which if damaged, would fundamentally change the life of the patient.

The series follows patients undergoing complex life-changing brain surgery at Southampton’s Neurological Centre.

The series continues on Monday at 9pm and you can catch up on previous episodes on C4’s website here.
