Enough to run 12 flat screen TVs.

The difference between being a loser and a world champion is counted in 1/100s of a second.

Not a machine? But this human body is being treated like one, and it’s responding.

Australia is a land of champion athletes. But when it comes down to it, few of us have any idea about what it takes to produce a world-beating result… Kirk Docker deconstructs the machine that is Shane Perkins, Australia’s fastest track cyclist.

Produced for the ‘Hungry Beast’ TV Series, Season 3.

Design and Animation:
Writer: Kirk Docker
DOP: Aaron Smith

Production Company: Zapruder’s Other films
