Spirit Science has been an ongoing and evolving project from the beginning. Did you know there was a time when it used to be JUST cartoons on youtube? We didn’t even have a website, it was just some fun videos I put together in my parents basement… Now we’ve got our own servers and everything! It’s a little crazy, and we’re just still getting started. We’ve got some pretty big plans, and they involve you ;)
But today, we’re gonna take a look at the top 5 Spirit Science cartoons from my perspective. Being the guy that made them, I’ve got my own list of favorites which I just had an absolute blast making, and i’d like to share them with you today, and why I like them :)
Before we begin, I’d also like to open the space to invite YOU to list your top 5 favorite Spirit Science cartoons, and list them in the comments! I will tally the results and post them in a new post, so we can find out what topics the world digs the most too :)
And so, without further adieux…
5. Cosmic Connections
I had been putting music in the background of the videos for a while, and I had experimented only briefly with using other youtube videos (other than my own cartoons) in the videos… but in this video, I feel as though I hit a beautiful peak where the video, animation, and music all synced up together and expressed an important message about connection and community… That’s really what it’s all about :)
4. The Keys of our Past
3. The Sacred Geometry Movie
2. The Human History Movie
What’s crazy is that this was never intended to be a movie! The Human History Movie was originally a 5 part episode (Episode 12) which was then later on edited together by my dear friend Andrew Golden, who made some wicked magic with his mad video editing skillz. Without him, I’m not sure I would have thought to make it a movie, and its because of his love that this video has done as well as it has. Accumulatively, this video has probably over 10 Million views on Youtube. Many people have uploaded and reshared it, and the Spirit Science Official Version actually doesn’t have nearly the amount of views as the other ones. It’s really not a huge problem, that tidbit is really just interesting to me.
