Where did Carbon come from? How does Carbon work? Did it come from the big bang? This new feature-length documentary will discuss every question you’ve had about Carbon. From the beginning of this feature, we understand that Carbon’s creation is an amazing, cosmic event. Carbon is younger than the universe and comes from the heart of a star. Voicing Carbon herself is talented Australian actress Sarah Snook. Sarah brings a fun, likeable presence to the screen in her voicework as Carbon, revealing Carbon’s deep thoughts along the way.
Not only will viewers feel like they are learning from Carbon herself, but the film also includes various interviews from celebrities and guests such as Neil deGrasse Tyson (Astrophysicist), Robert Hazen (Geologist), Mark Miodownik (Material Scientist) and Carin Bondar (Biologist). All of these celebrities and guests are not only highly knowledgeable about Carbon, but they are also extremely passionate about it and love explaining every aspect of it in detail. Naturally, their passion is infectious to viewers.
Not only do we discover how amazing Carbon is, but audiences are given a greater understanding and awareness, especially regarding Carbon’s power and control. It’s fascinating to understand that the world changes due to Carbon, whether in our air or through something else we encounter during the day. Again, understanding Carbon’s origins, what it’s doing currently, and what it can do are important and memorable lessons throughout the film.
When it comes to visuals, this documentary is stunning. Even if viewers were not previously familiar with the science terms used through the documentary, the visuals are still impressive to witness on the big screen. Visuals are bright and colourful and look high-resolution. The footage is enhanced with some CGI to help us see what Carbon is doing on a level invisible to the naked eye. We also witness engaging animations that teach and explain concepts creatively at key moments. The audio track and sound effects are impacting and strongly matches the solid visuals.
