We specialize in creating 3-D animations to illustrate biological processes, medical conditions, and treatments. In developing a presentation, we aim for the magical spot where scientific accuracy, art, and learning converge. Our animations are effective because we understand the science behind the animations. Collectively, we have decades of experience in teaching with new media.
Animation is a powerful tool for presenting complex concepts that may be difficult to convey in any other way. By their nature, biological processes and medical events change over the course of time.
Animation is often the best and most cost-effective way to convey this type of information. We make presentations to educate students, patients, medical professionals, and juries. We offer complete production services that include: script writing, animation, postproduction, and delivery in the medium of your choice.
In postproduction, the video or animation is edited, cut together, and transformed into a story. This may include the addition of titles, labels, graphics, narration, compelling music, and special sound and visual effects.
Music, sound effects, and quality narration contribute a tremendous amount to the final presentation. We work with musicians, sound designers, and voice talent who are experienced in broadcast and digital media. No matter what your budget is, we can convey your message clearly and make it sound professional.
CD-ROM is a versatile medium for delivering a rich media experience. A CD can hold a huge amount of material in many different formats. Delivering your project on CD-ROM allows for the greatest user interactivity and flexibility.
We use iShell, an extremely robust environment for CD-ROM authoring. With iShell, your CD can contain video, audio, animation, graphics, databases, dynamic Web-located content, text, and much more. We can even make a "live" CD-ROM that pulls updated content from the Internet! And with iShell, we can do it better, faster, and more cost-effectively than with any other authoring program.
CD-ROM projects have a wide range of complexity. A relatively simple project may contain movies, graphics, and text presented in an appropriate user interface. A complex project (such as a training course) may be database-driven, with content delivery dictated by sophisticated evaluation of user input and profiles. We have created CD-ROM modules that allow students to enter and graph their own data and evaluate the results. Challenging and unique assessment exercises can be created in this environment.
Video-DVD is an excellent way to distribute animated and video content to a wide audience. We MPEG-compress video and audio content to our exacting standards, design menus and navigation, and arrange for duplication of any quantity of discs.
Once animations, videos, and graphics are produced, they must be compressed for distribution on CD-ROM, DVD, or the Web. We have over a decade of experience with digital compression, and know the ins and outs of generating superior-quality MPEG, QuickTime, Windows Media, and other media formats.
We flowchart, design, produce, and deliver entire courses of instruction from start to finish. Whether your project involves distance learning, a high school or college course, or professional training, we can build a course to suit your needs. We work closely with our clients to determine their needs for content and assessment. Our proposals make the best use of resources in order to meet your time frame and budget. Build it once, and deliver your course hundreds or thousands of times via the Web or CD-ROM.
If you are looking for graphics or animations for an upcoming presentation, let us help. We have a large library of 3-D models, animations, and images, and can always make custom media. Give your audience something to remember instead of just another PowerPoint slide show.
