EPA “EV’s Explained” Motion Graphics Animation

posted in: highlights, portfolio | 0

Aloe Design animated this PSA for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to help increase awareness of electric vehicles and how they work.

“EVs produce no tailpipe emissions. While charging the battery may increase pollution at the power plant, total emissions associated with driving EVs are still typically less than those for gasoline cars—particularly if the electricity is generated from renewable energy sources like wind.”

This is a short clip from the “TWA Flight 800″ documentary featuring animation from Aloe Design. For the map section, Aloe Design worked closely with the producers to translate original radar data into animation representing the exact flight path of TWA Flight 800. The witness point of view animations were created with direct input from the eyewitnesses. The closeup 3D animation of the plane emulates the look of the original NTSB animation of this event.

Aloe Design created all the animation in this clip. The video and audio segments are used with permission from the film’s producers.

Clean ? Coal

posted in: portfolio | 0

The coal industry has spent millions of dollars on ad campaigns trying to change Americans’ perceptions over dirty coal. The ads have attempted to whitewash, or “greenwash,” coal using the oxymoron “clean” for one of the greatest source of pollution of our air, water and land.

Animated to the tune “Honestly Sincere,” this video shows a chunk of Coal trying to clean up his image by covering himself with green paint, but everywhere he goes he wreaks havoc: literally leaving carbon footprints, exuding coal dust, dirtying streams, heating up the atmosphere, causing air pollution, and in the end, destroying wildlife, and decimating an entire mountain top. There is nothing about Coal that is clean- and the coal industries’ ads are anything but “Honestly Sincere.”

Construction Accident Recreation

posted in: portfolio | 0

This animation was created by Aloe Design for court case use. The video depicts a freshly set concrete structure having structural failure under its own weight. The structure had “crane lift anchors” placed too close to the edge of the structure (where it shows 6.5″ mark). This caused the concrete to break when too much load was placed on the anchors. It then fell and damaged the operator. The concrete was animated by a custom physics simulation which was created to match eyewitness accounts.
