SMILE – Small Incision Lenticule Extraction

Considered the new ‘LASIK’, SMILE is on the cutting edge of refractive error surgeries. This video (3 mins) was my first project at Rendia. I tweaked my style to match that of the existing videos and learned a lot about this cool procedure in the meantime. The challenge is to keep patients oriented when viewing the eye from many angles and learning how to do a Point of View shot.

As the medical animator, I handled the project from storyboard to finished deliverable. Existing Rendia assets were utilized (3D model of eye, cornea) with some hand painted elements for a final flourish.

Salivary Gland Stones

The challenge with this animation was to show salivary glands and stones in a way that wouldn’t disgust the audience. I relied on 3D assets and my own drawings to achieve a clean and approachable style.

As the medical animator, I handled the project from storyboard to finished deliverable. Existing Rendia assets were utilized (3D model of head, salivary glands) with some hand painted elements for a final flourish. I found and corrected anatomical errors in the salivary glands for the company’s content.

Anosmia

Would you rather lose your sense of smell or vision? The loss of the sense of smell is called anosmia, and it is much harder to live with than you might realize. Our olfactory pathway is tied closely to the limbic system, meaning certain smells can trigger emotional memories. Ansomics will never again smell fresh cut grass, baking bread, the air after the rains, a good cup of coffee, a bowl of tortilla soup… Since anosmics are often undiagnosed and misunderstood, our goal was to explain the condition clearly and give people explanations for why this might be happening to them.

As the medical animator, I handled the project from storyboard to finished deliverable. Also painted a number of lifestyle images.

Age-Related Macular Degeneration Overview

Patient education animation on age-related macular degeneration. As the lead animator, I assembled existing assets (eye, retina, stock photography) and added text and shape effects in time with the VO. Knowing the audience might have some degree of vision loss, I tried to balance type accessibility with sophisticated graphic elements and transitions.
