This Nerve Mapping video was one of a number of productions made for the German medical technology company Pajunk to showcase their range of hi-precision needles. This film was the first opportunity for me to work closely at the pre-production stage and plan shots with the editing process (and several compositional layers) in mind.
The device at the heart of this film was a hand held electronic nerve-stimulating device with an LCD readout screen. I decided early on that it would be beneficial to show the output of this screen at all times alongside footage of the various stimulations taking place so, in post-production, I reproduced the screen and animated the readouts. In addition to the video footage, I produced animated nerve illustrations which were composited onto the video footage to show the location of the nerves being described at each juncture. This involved working closely with medical professionals to maintain high levels of accuracy and correctness.
