About this entry

A 2020 EMMY Winner, "Could You Survive The Movies?" is an explosive science series that explores the science behind what you see in movies. Host, VSauce star, Jake Roper takes you on an immersive ride through the world, blending scientific exploration with narrative storytelling. 

Why does this entry deserve to win?

Jake’s experimentation runs the gamut from determining if it’s possible to survive being caught in a movie sized explosion to Doc Brown surviving 1.3million gigawatts! In addition to practical experiments, using incredible CG effects Jake dives into the science of the world. 


It’s equal parts entertainment and education all while celebrating the incredible movies that we love.
