After months of work I am so pleased to announce that the project you have heard so much about on this blog is now complete. I had been working on changes to the scene up to the very last minute, so now I am almost in shock that I am done! I was able to upload two Sorenson compressed versions onto my website in .mov and .wmv formats for you to download. I have wondered why Sorenson does not have an .avi option, do any of you animators out there know?
Every frame of this animation was structured and every movement that you see relied on an accurate biological function. When you go to the hospital and you are hooked up to the heart monitor, those moving, wavy lines mean something right? That is exactly the basis of this animation. Robert A. Freitas Jr. (author of the Nanomedicine book series) who directed me, understands the relationship the dermal screen has with the body, and what is actually going on inside of the body. This animation was created so that you could see precisely what you would see if it was functioning on your own hand, accurately. That last word of course, made the project very challenging, as there was no freedom in the frames or the movements. This created a rather large learning curve for me - I would have paid to attend a class where I learned as much. It was a privilege to work with such an outstanding author.
