The prestigious 46 year old Hugo Television Awards honor the most innovative and outstanding television productions and commercials from around the world.
Launched to great viewer and critical acclaim on Canada’s Olympic Broadcast Media Consortium of stations during the 2010 Winter Olympics, SuperBodies(1×60’; 12×2’ English, 12×2’ French) matches science and art through cutting-edge forensic computer-generated imagery that explores athleticism of the human body. Hosted by Dr. Greg Wells, a physiological scientist who works with elite athletes, SuperBodies unveils what truly happens when star athletes perform by peeling away the human skin to reveal anatomically precise muscles, ligaments and bones in action. Whether it’s barreling down a mountain at neck breaking speed, performing aerial acrobatics or skating at the speed of light, each segment illustrates how the body copes, adjusts and compensates to ensure athletes excel at their sport.
