Project objective: To create short, hand-drawn animated sequences illustrating The BC Lung Association “Radon Aware” campaign videos. Radon is a radioactive, invisible, odourless gas that can seep into your home through cracks in floors, walls and foundations. You can’t see radon. You can’t smell it or taste it. But when radon seeps into a closed-in space like a house, it can be harmful.
The BC Lung Association runs a campaign called “Radon aware” to raise awareness around radon gas and help people address the issue by testing their home and potentially building mitigation systems. The BC Lung Association hired the Vancouver based Sustainability Television to create the films. Sustainability Television hired me to create 4 short sequences to explain technical details such as:
- ideal location of the test (2’06” in the testing video)
- passive sub-lab depressurization system (1’28” in the video on the left)
- active sub-lab depressurization system (3’11” in the video on the left)
- comparing radon concentration before/after mitigation (6’36” in the video on the left).
I built upon the existing illustration used throughout the campaign and drew animations to illustrate the narration. The project represented no more than 1.5 days of work. Animations were delivered to Sustainability Television who integrated them into the films. Visit http://www.radonaware.ca/radon-resources/videos for more details about Radon Aware.
