So, for my most recent motion design class, we had to take on some aspect of climate change. I decided an explanation of the hydrogen fuel cell was in order. I think it works pretty well, even if some of the writing gets a bit muddied. This project was pretty fascinating as I didn't know much about the hydrogen fuel cell prior to researching this topic. I knew it was a way to power an automobile, but how it actually worked I wasn't aware of until I chose this as my topic.

All of the graphics were created in either Illustrator or Photoshop, except for the subtly undulating background - that was created via a simple layering of a couple of different effects in After Effects. All of the animation also took place in After Effects.

The music is "So Low, So High" by the band Maps. Check 'em out, the whole album is amazing and is on iTunes in a DRM-free format (which means the songs can be brought into After Effects easily for student projects like this).
