Three animations By Gina Miller
These animations were commissioned by a talented film producer Richard Eschenroeder documenting merging health technologies to raise funds for research at Washington University in St. Louis, MO in collaboration with Children's hospital. Many topics were covered, one of them being nanotechnology, specifically an interview with polymer chemist Dr. Karen Wooley and her vision of nano enabled cancer and other health repair devices. I was hired to create very quick turn around (6 to 10 days for all) companion animations for this particular segment. A wonderful experience.
These are compressed versions.
Cancer repair animation shows a nanoscale device repairing a cancer cell. Click here to view the Quicktime version (.mov 1.75mb) or click here to view the Windows Media Video (.wmv 2.04mb). This will be featured in the movie.
Scale animation demonstrates the scale differences between the visual world and the potential nanoworld via an animated camera traveling from outer space all the way down to inside a blood vessel. Click here to view the Quicktime version (.mov 2.54mb) or click here to view the Windows Media Video (.wmv 2.43mb). This will be featured in the movie.
Compare animation a short 2D animation of the bottom image you see below. Click here to view the Quicktime version (.mov 910kb) or click here to view the Windows Media Video (.wmv 877kb). This will not be featured in the movie.
