Colorblind Infographic video won first prize at the 2013 GDC/BC Salazar Awards in the category of Video & Animation, was the 2013 Applied Arts Student Awards winner in the Online Animation Category, and also made it to the semifinals in the 2014 Adobe Design Achievement Awards in the Motion Category.
This animation was a collaboration between me and Daniel Gleiberman as an informative infographic for a school project. We used After Effects to create a simple style that would engage but not overwhelm.
We describe how colorblindness is inherited through genetics as well as the different kinds of colorblindness.
In May 2012 I was browsing the Web in search of inspiration for a personal project, and I found this amazing declaration of love in form of an info-graphic written by Drake Martinet. I asked his permission to create an animated version, he liked the idea and this is what came out of our collaboration.
The project was an unexpected viral success; it has been viewed more than one million times.
This video marks our first collaboration with takepart.com and our second with Participant Media and director Davis Guggenheim (we worked on a little Oscar winning documentary he directed called, “An Inconvenient Truth”). All backslapping and name tossing aside, this animation is for a startling documentary called, “Waiting For ‘Superman’” that highlights some very serious issues in America today and it made us feel good to make it.
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.
