This animation, created as a brief overview of an Oak Ridge National Laboratory research initiative called COMMANDER, was the perfect opportunity for building a low-poly set. As a Science Animation Producer, I often find that animations with realistic models are more subject to nit-picks on minor details. Low-ploy sets serve as an awesome compromise between science and art for effectively communicating a concept without getting too far into the weeds. And it is a huge time saver when modeling complex objects. View the full animation to learn more!
