When one thinks of the art of animation, the first images that come to mind for most would of course be movies and shows that feature cartoon characters. Not much attention is given to medical animation, which is a very advanced aspect of the art. I'm developing a topic on the AN Forums that features the work of several medical animation companies, including Microcosm Medical Animation and Nucleus Medical Media to name a few.
This video is from Ghost Productions of Roseville, Minnesota, USA. It was created two years ago in 2009. I chose to feature their company demo reel because of the narrative aspect they gave it. In the video, an artist is working on the restoration of the Sistine Chapel, when he has an accident and falls from the scaffolding. Animation is effectively used to show how his injuries would be administered.
