1. Artefact Collection


    from Ronaldas Buozis / Added

    Fashion Film for Artefact 2010 - collaboration with fashion designer Egle Cekanaviciute. www.ronaldasbuozis.com Film by: Ronaldas Buozis Fashion & Styling: Egle Cekanaviciute Model: Jovita Miseviciute - Mieliauskiene Hair: Ramonas Ciuplys Music: Dawn Chorus by Boards of Canada We opted for a very natural style, with a subtle desaturated colour palette. All shots were handheld with more motion added for a home-made look. I knew from the beginning that the editing will be jump cuts heavy, so I tried to keep the composition moving to make the jumps sharper. The most experimental part was obviously the employment of Super8mm camera and Kodak Vision2 200T 7217 film. It supposed to offer a totally different time space and atmosphere to the same location. The Super8 grain gave a low-quality aged look as well as much better treatment of light than in the digital footage. Thank you everyone involved, it's been a great pleasure.

      This is the next day after surgery: left hip metal on metal replacement by Dr. Thomas Gross in Columbia, South Carolina. I am fortunate to have one of the very best surgeons in the US. Patients come from all over the to get surgery from him. Thank you to my good buddy/longtime friend John Wilder from Savannah for filming this. I'm officially bilateral now - both hips. Halfway through the video I started to roll off of my left foot, the operated side. Unbelievable, the "injury" is extremely refined.. Thank you Dr. Gross!

          We built this medical animtion from the ground up to showcase the talents of Ghost Productions at the 2009 American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons (AAOS) in Las Vegas. Instead of showing pre-existing client work in our reel, we thought it would be more fun to make a character animation, break nearly every bone in his body, and then surgically repair him in under 3 minutes.

            Esta entrevista foi transmitida em 13 de dezembro de 2010 pela MixTV Notícias, uma rede de TV brasileira. Dr. Sydney Haje, ortopedista de Brasília, DF, Brasil, explica seu método conservador, também chamado método Dinâmico de Remodelação (DR), para tratamento das deformidades pectus (deformidades da parte da frente do tórax). Os resultados mostrados nesta entrevista não significam que os mesmos resultados irão acontecer para todos pacientes com semelhantes deformidades. Os exemplos mostrados são de pacientes que seguiram apropriadamente as instruções médicas durante o tratamento e demonstram que a remodelação dos ossos e cartilagens da parte da frente do tórax – uma região maleável – pode ocorrer, evitando a cirurgia. Assistência médica para progresso do tratamento e para prevenção de complicações, além de força de vontade do paciente em um longo periodo de tempo (um ou mais anos), são vistas como essenciais para um tratamento bem sucedido.

            • Multiactivity Wear Testing of Total Knee Replacements by Christopher Knowlton - Dance Your PhD 2012

              The painful and debilitating effects of osteoarthritis at the knee can be remedied by replacing the damaged articulating surfaces of the knee with a total knee replacement. Modern knee replacements consist of a metal alloy component on the femoral side (top of the knee) and a special plastic called ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene on the tibial side (bottom of the knee). Through recent improvements in materials, these implants have seen increased longevity, often lasting 15 years or more in the body before requiring a second surgery. As patients opt for knee replacements earlier in life, remain more active after surgery and live longer, the demands on the design and longevity of knee replacements increases. One of the leading causes of revision surgery is periprosthetic bone loss, which means that bone near the implant has thinned. As the knee articulates during walking, the top metal component slides, rolls and rotates on the polyethylene. This relative motion causes the polyethylene to wear. Microscopic debris leaves the surface and enters the surrounding tissue, where it can set off a cascade of cellular reactions that lead to bone resorption. Currently, knee replacement designs and materials are evaluated before being implanted by machines that run accelerated tests by simulating the motion of walking at the knee. However, walking is not the only activity of daily living. Sitting in a chair, rising from a chair, stepping up a stair and stepping down a stair are the most common activities for total knee replacement patients after walking. In a motion analysis lab, we measured the movements and dynamics of these activities using retroreflective markers, infrared cameras and force plates. Using a computational method known as inverse dynamics and a parametric numerical model, we were able to show that these activities generally have larger motions and higher forces. In particular, the secondary motions of the knee, such as internal-external rotation and medial-lateral (side-to-side) translation, are often larger in non-walking activities. Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, the plastic most commonly used in knee replacements, is made of long chains of molecules. The material is highly wear resistant because the chains are entangled. As thousands of cycles of walking accumulate, the molecular chains align in the primary direction of motion. Once aligned, the material is more susceptible to wear in secondary directions. The larger secondary motions of other activities could lead higher wear. Because pre-implantation tests only include walking, the tests may be insufficient to accurately predict the wear of the implant in the body. Currently, testing is underway to evaluate if the motions of non-walking activities do increase the wear of knee replacements. In addition, knee replacements that had been implanted and were retrieved from patients after revision surgery or death are being evaluated for wear. The results of these retrieved specimen will help determine whether the inclusion of non-walking activities in testing routines is necessary to evaluate the wear of total knee replacements. My dance to explain my in-progress PhD thesis at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in Bioengineering was originally choreographed for live performance and adapted for the camera.

              • Zimmer Patient Specific


                from Paul Griswold / Added

                Directed by Paul Griswold & animated at Fusion Digital Productions. Produced by Audio Visual Integrations for Zimmer Orthopedics. The challenge in this project was that the product wasn't actually completed when we were producing the animation. So parameters kept changing. Plus this industry is very conservative, so I was limited in how "crazy" I could get with the animations. It was done in Softimage XSI and comp'ed in Eyeon Fusion. The opening photos are actually ICE particles. I created a single animation of the photos rotating on top of the "stick" and then generated hundreds of them with ICE. The cool part was actually learning how this product works. They take an MRI of a body part, then a 3D printer prints a copy of that body part. Then they build the replacement parts from those copies. It's all very Star Trek.

                • 2013 Telly Award Winner: How Dr. Kevin Stone fixed Jen Hudak, not once but twice.

                  This is a video that I created for a San Francisco orthopedic clinic www.stoneclinic.com telling the story of a remarkable pro-skier, Jen Hudak and her recovery from her knee injuries. Kevin Stone M.D. is a pioneer in the field of orthopedics, with 25 years in private practice. He has an innovative, biologic approach to repairing joints with stem cells and donor tissue and he's a master at his profession. But Dr. Stone doesn’t see himself as a hero, he sees himself as a mentor. The patients are the heroes. This was especially apparent in his relationship with Jen Hudak. Jen specializes in half pipe skiing and had injured her knee in competition. The story was strong: Dr. Stone fixed her knee, she worked hard to rehabilitate it and within 6 months she was back out skiing. That season she won everything: X-games, European X-games, the world skiing invitational and the US nationals. When we first talked about the story, it seemed like this incredible accomplishment would be the place to end the video. What a triumph! We could show Dr. Stone’s expertise and Jen’s incredible dedication to her sport. I was aware that after her amazing success, Jen had been injured again but at first I didn’t think we needed to include the second injury. However, once we did the interview with Jen, I recognized that this second injury was in fact more devastating to her and her trust in Dr. Stone was all the more critical. To Jen, Dr. Stone’s belief in her ability to heal and get back out there again has been central to her decision to carry on with the sport. These twists and turns are what make stories interesting. We opened up the video to include this dramatic turn of events. Jen draws us into her struggle to once again get back into competition and we see a compassionate Dr. Stone through Jen’s eyes.

                  • Bionic Man: Four Joint Replacements

                    Scott Marinelli is a walking wonder. It’s a wonder he’s even walking at all. “I’d get these stabbing pains in my knee, it was like somebody with a pick axe, you know, just stabbing on my knees. I’d get these shooting pains from my hip down to my ankles.” He was laboring through life with crippling arthritis in several of his joints, due to heredity, trauma and overuse. When he couldn’t take it anymore, he went for help. “Scott was in bad shape. I mean he had multiple joint involvement, very active guy and he was really disabled,” says Dr. George Markovich, an orthopedic surgeon on Lee Memorial Health System’s medical staff. To return to his former lifestyle, Dr. Markovich recommended joint replacement, several of them. “He had two bad hips and then he had a bad knee associated with that. Often times the knee pain can come from the hip but his were really both separate. Then he had a bad shoulder.” “Nobody wants to have an operation lets face it and I knew it wasn’t just going to be one operation but I was probably going to have to have four,” says Marinelli. “We sort of started talking about how to proceed in terms of reconstructing things. We went from the joint that hurt him the most and limited him the most to the one that sort of wasn’t weight baring,” says Dr. Markovich. If you’re keeping the score, Scott had two hips resurfaced, one total shoulder replacement and one total knee replacement. That’s four operations in one year. With just a little bit of down time in between, he’s back on his feet. Each surgery was followed by a rehabilitation and recovery period. Like other baby boomer patients, Scott had high expectations. “People used to say ‘look I just want to get to the refrigerator and be comfortable when I’m sitting on my porch.’ Now people want to climb Mount Everest and jog and run half marathons and things like that. Fortunately technology and techniques that have been refined and developed can meet that challenge,” says Dr. Markovich. He jokes that he’s a bionic man with several rebuilt joints. Together they’ve made him feel like a new man. “I can walk around, I can move around, I mean I don’t have to have any kind of artificial help. I don’t have to have the canes or the walkers or any of that stuff anymore,” says Marinelli.
