This is my final thesis project. I created info-graphic, motion piece. My objective is to make Japanese people to think about that everything happening here in Japan, isn't that normal. So I created this video from foreigner's point of view, rather than Japanese people's point of view.
Both English and Japanese versions are available.
By the way, please don't call me racist, because I am one of short, small eyes Japanese.
I created iconic motion graphics accompanied by eccentric and complicated scientific information from The Naked Scientists podcast. My theme was "Performance enhancement using blood doping." I created simple icons to make it easy to understand, and then moved them to follow the narrative. To maintain the viewer's interest, I used some unexpected transitions.
