See an Apocalyptic World Envisioned in Miniature

Nix + Gerber, the duo of Lori Nix and Kathleen Gerber, are miniature diorama artists who have collaborated for 14 years. They specialize in creating post-mankind settings, where buildings are crumbling and "nature takes back some of the spaces." In this wonderful and fun artist profile short documentary by filmmaking duo The Drawing Room, we meet these two compelling artists with a keen eye for the details that makes their art come to life.

You can follow The Drawing Room on Vimeo, Facebook and Twitter.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's belief in the power of science, exploration, and storytelling to change the world. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of National Geographic Partners.
