How We Produce 3d Medical Animation

Creating a 2-minute, 3d medical animation follows the same general process as that of a feature film, only…much faster. The process is largely the same, but the challenges relating to an animation are unique. First, a script is developed and finalized. Then the script is drawn and laid-out in scenes, called a storyboard. Actors (played by 3D models) are cast in their roles. Make-up (provided as 3D texture) and lights are set for each scene. Cameras are readied to capture the angles and movements the actors have to do. Then, it’s roll camera to see the animation. Cut, print (meaning hours of computer rendering), check the raw footage and go back and make the actors do it again till they get it right. Once it’s done, add special effects, composite the film and call your colleagues to the premier.

So, What’s Different?

Though the process is largely similar to film making, two unique challenges to 3d animations are battled with constantly. In a film, you can’t see the post-edited look that you would normally see …well …post-edit. As a result, the director has to envision the final result and get as close to it as possible when the picture is “in the can”. 3D animations with computer graphics, this is not the case. As a result, the actors can re-shoot the scene with new makeup, lighting, or camera angles at any time. This is a devil’s bargain as it helps the quality of the 3d animation but can actually hurt budgets and timelines. What makes it worse is a temptation to actually change the script and re-shoot the whole film. Therefore, a greater discipline is required to get the script right on the first try. The other challenge is speed. 3d animation is to feature films what speed dating is to dinner and a movie. Often, you only get one shot at something; and you need to capitalize if you don’t want to capitulate.
