During our second semester of Moving Image we had to make a commercial for any company we would like. Together with 3 classmates we thought it was interesting to come up with a viral for research on cancer targeted on the group that nearly donates, youngsters.
Our idea was to reach youngsters by showing people from there age on a party and then let something happen in an environment they're known with. We then came up with a visual form of cancer to scare people a bit and than hopefully let them think about it. It can happen to anyone and at any place.
For the growing veins effect I collected several reference images and then made a dozen trial versions with different experiments of shapes, animations, colors and ways of motion tracking. Eventually the final shot contained too much noise to make use of motion tracking so I decided to track everything by hand. Effect and tracking were done with Adobe After Effects.
The map itself was made with the Fractal Noise effect, I then pre-composed it to make the tracking easier and then pre-composed it another time to add the different layers of effects to the complete tracked map.
