The Theory of Relativity

Motion Design & Animation, Illustration, Writer

Challenge: A passion project mashing physics with...phun.

Process: I'll be honest with you. I spent a lot of time in the library. After digesting the extremely large details of the subject, I started sketching and translating concepts into illustrations—a pretty easy task because so many of the concepts are analogized in very visual ways. I wrote the script, storyboarded, and recorded the VO myself, then created layered files in Illustrator to take into After Effects. I opted for a limited, desaturated color palette and throwback typography to match the feel of an old slideshow classroom video. This video was screened at TELUS Spark, Calgary's science center, on their Einstein night.

Capabilities: Illustration, scriptwriting, motion graphics design and production.
