Production Part II: Opening Segment


Why is MS an important topic of research in Canada?


I am a big fan of infographics, especially when they cross into the realm of scientific visualization. You may or may not know (this, of course, would depend on your chronological preference for reading blog entries) that my MRP animation is about a new tool for improving MS research. So it is important that the current impact of this disease is understood by the viewer right from the start. I thought an animated infographic using data from Statistics Canada could be very effective as an opening segment for the animation.

It is my first attempt at an animated infographic, and I really enjoyed the process of developing it – even while spending too much time pushing around keyframes in After Effects. It still has a rough scratch narration track, but the high quality recording is soon to come. Enjoy!
