Infographic sharks

As a personal side project I’m currently working on an infographic about sharks, specifically about their decline and need for preservation. I am currently finishing up the research required and will soon start sketching the first images and storyboard. The infographic will be entirely animated with After Effects. For the images I’ll probably use Illustrator and Photoshop.

I’ve sorted my information, and made a script with what I wish to say and in what order. I have visualised some of the information to make sense out of it. Here’s a graph I’ve made of the decline in shark populations. I have a full script, storyboard and a nice voice over. The voice over has been edited and cut into pieces. Now I can really start!

These storyboard images are taken with a camera phone. Once I get a chance to scan the sketches in properly I will update with better quality images.

Number Needed to Treat

During my internship at Radboudumc I was asked to make a video explaining a statistical concept from medicine: number needed to treat. For this video I was given a lot of freedom, provided it was educative and useful. There were unfortunately no professional cameras or microphones available, so the images and sound are a bit low quality.

I prepared examples for the speaker, who was quite free in what he said because he’s a professional teacher of this material. I did however focus on the setting, camera’s, lighting, and of course the editing and animations. The speaker wished to stay anonymous for this portfolio.

Tijdens mijn stage bij het Radboudumc ben ik gevraagd om een educatieve video te maken waarin een statistisch concept uit de medische wereld wordt toegelicht: number needed to treat. Ik kreeg hier veel vrijheid bij, zolang het maar educatief en nuttig was. Er waren helaas geen professioniĆ«le camera’s of microfoons beschikbaar, dus het beeld en het geluid is van lage kwaliteit.

Ik heb de voorbeelden voor de spreker voorbereid, maar verder is hij vrij geweest in zijn spraak omdat hij een docent is die deze materie regelmatig doceert. Ik heb me gericht op het decor, de camera’s, de belichting, en natuurlijk het bewerken en de animaties. De spreker wenste anoniem te blijven op dit portfolio.

Waterschap Graphic

For the Waterschap Rijn en Ijssel I made a motion graphic in which I experimented with a voice over. I wrote the text and did the voice over myself. In After Effects I experimented with Expressions for the first time, and used those to lip sync the droplet. The overall video isn’t that great, but this was mostly intended as a video to learn expressions, and handling a voice-over.

Deze animatievideo is gemaakt voor het Waterschap Rijn en Ijssel. Hierin heb ik geƫxperimenteerd met het gebruik van een voice-over. Deze voice-over heb ik zelf gescheven en ingesproken. In After Effects heb ik vervolgens voor het eerst Expressions gebruikt om het waterdruppeltje te lipsyncen. De video zelf is niet zo geweldig, maar dat komt omdat het vooral bedoeld om expressies te oefenen, en te leren omgaan met een voice-over.
