amyloid awareness film

Lots of people have asked me what I'm working on recently and I'm always kinda like "Errr...you know, like freelance stuff..." It just takes so much energy to explain what you're doing when you make a living off of obscure projects on the very outside perimeter of the animation world (which itself is already pretty obscure and hard to explain). Plus I usually can't show anybody what I've been doing, you know, non disclosure and all that jazz. So let me tell you what I've been doing, since I have a rare opportunity to actually do that for once: right now I'm working on illustrations for a short film to educate doctors and other highly edumacated medical peoples about a rare, hard to explain, obscure disease. Amyloidosis! I can't really tell you what it is because I don't really know! I'm only responsible for a little segment of images in the film, and my segment has no cells/amoebas/little squirmy things in it. Mostly it's just doctors and people standing around. And some grandmas and grandpas.





They're pretty straight forward. None of them is on the screen for very long so it has to be a quick read!




I like the colors in this lab the best. I think I did a pretty good job on that microscope too, if I do say so myself!








I just don't want you guys to think I'm hanging out eating bonbons all day in Los Feliz.

Did anyone else go to the Char Anim Show last night?? Soooo fun!

Those are some lucky doctors who get to watch this. Eating bon bons is ok though. Los feliz is good for that.

It was fun seeing you at the show! I had ten times as much fun as I was expecting (and I was expecting a lot).

Christian Robinson said...

Oh my goodness! first off these illustrations are super duper cool. Secondly I think i know who the employer of this project was. I worked on a very similar Amyliodosisis... project 2 summers ago at July Films.

I think the contractors name was Greg, he was a thin vegan guy who road a motorcycle. sound familiar?
