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.
