In 2011, Digizyme developed animated supplements to a WGBH/Amgen high-school laboratory curriculum. The concept was to establish what students would see on the bench, then dive inside the lab equipment to show what happens to the molecules. I created the photoreal establishing shots below, which were interspersed and overlaid with molecular animation and narration at Digizyme.
Bonus technical detail: the gel-loading shot in the first sequence uses Maya nDynamics, and became the basis for a tutorial at clarafi.com. The second sequence was animated entirely in MODO, which had no particle or fluid simulation at the time.
