Zachary Quinto stars in History’s reboot of the classic series In Search Of, which explores unsolved mysterious and unexplained phenomena.

The live action spot features Quinto driving down a dark road witnessing odd events before arriving at a vista point where he steps out of the car to observe the great unknown.

METAphrenie, which appropriately for this campaign means “beyond the mind,” contributed visual effects and compositing to the spot, including green-screen replacement for the interior car shots, creation of moving environments outside the car windows, sky replacement, addition of car headlights and taillights, and other various effects.

In Search Of premieres on History on Friday, July 20.
