The Raising of America, Episode 1


The Raising of America
“Early Childhood and the Future of Our Nation”


For the signature hour of this five-part documentary on childhood development, Albinson Design was asked to create several different styles of graphics to cover the various segments of the show.

The 3D segments were the most challenging part of this project, as we had to show neuron cells inside the brain and their effects on each other and on the body. We used Cinema 4D and X-Particles to model and animate these complex sequences, adhering closely to the scientific reference provided by our advisors.

In addition to the scientific segments, Albinson Design also built out 2D document animations for newspaper headlines, legislation and other printed pages. Several 2D graphs were required, which we interpreted and animated in After Effects.
