The Raising of America, Episode 5


The Raising of America
“DNA Is Not Destiny”


For episode 5 of the five part documentary “The Raising of America,” Albinson Design handled the task of 3D epigenetic animations.

The challenge of this project was the sheer complexity of the molecular processes happening within the body, and finding away to convey the resulting effects without confusing the audience. Working with the client and science advisors, we settled on a greatly simplified version of the DNA methylation process that showed the results without necessarily depicting every molecule involved. Cinema 4D’s Physical render module was very helpful in getting a blurry, microscopic look for these renders.
