Evolution-Health: Obesity


If you missed my first post on Back Pain, this week I'm sharing some of the designs and layouts I did from the Evolution-Health animation project we created at FableVision for the New York Hall of Science. The second of the 4 animations we developed is about Obesity... specifically, the idea that we evolved the ability to store fat when food was scarce, and how that's become a problem in the modern world (at least here in America), where easy access to an abundance of high-calorie fatty and sweet food combines with an inactive lifestyle.


Obesity was the first animation I started design on. Initially there was a thought to have the contemporary characters have match with prehistoric counterparts (a fun idea). It ended up clashing with the some of the story set-ups, and was probably too cute. Including in this case, where we open on a couch potato but follow a smaller runt-type when we move to the past.


Below, an early storyboard sequence of the runt, running to catch up with the food.




This one has a great 'snarly-gorging' eating sequence (above). It ends on a family, happily chomping away on various unhealthy snacks. Note the baby with the soda.

One of the main factors to consider when choosing an essay writing service is their price. Also, make sure that you choose an essay writing service that is neither too expensive nor suspiciously cheap. Also, you should compare the price charged by different companies before you make your final decision. Another important factor to consider when choosing an essay. writing service is to check their website.
