The illustration was good. It really brought what happened closer to home for viewers. It didn’t feel like something they got from other sources without making any sort of attempt to connect it to people in their lives.
HM: Brittain McNeel, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “Population Boom.”
Really simple chart and the accommodation of the information and animation was powerful. The integration of animation into their video was quite tasteful and restrained. It can get tacky very quickly but they did a good job.
