Man, it’s been awhile since my last post! Thought I would change it up a bit from my boring illustrations ( ) to something a bit more visually engaging.
I’m sure all these random video projects are a bit confusing, but this one–which is completely separate from the New Media Medicine videos I previously posted–is something I worked on last fall for the MIT Center for Transportation and Logistics (CTL). The project was commissioned by CTL Executive Director Chris Caplice, and consists of four short videos that demonstrate different socioeconomic scenarios for our global economy. The fun part about it?–All the videos take place thirty years in the future!
Working with a great production team (Luis Blackaller, Max Wagenblass, Audubon Dougherty, Amy Strong, Brian Misiewicz, and many other wonderful people) and creative scripts conceptualized by the brilliant minds at MIT, I’m really happy with the finished product and wanted to share them. Hope you enjoy!

It’s official! The video project I’ve been working on for MIT is complete, and one by one the videos are making their debut on the MIT Media Lab New Media Medicine blog–many thanks to John Moore, M.D., for spearheading the project.
The first video to debut was the Health and Wellness Innovation introduction video, which, as the name suggests, introduces the 2011 Health and Wellness Innovation challenge that occurred at MIT in January. Eleven teams–consisting of students from MIT and other Boston-area institutions, as well as sponsor companies like Cisco, Motorola, and GSK–worked tirelessly for two weeks on creating innovative technologies for consumer health care, and amazingly, were able to construct working prototypes of these technologies.
The video production team was charged with the task of creating a short video for each of those groups that explained the innovation and its potential to consumers. As a co-producer of this project with director Max Wagenblass, I oversaw all phases of production (and even did some acting!), and I’m really proud of our work.
Definitely feel free to comment, like, or pass the word onto friends. These groups came up with super cool technologies that I hope you’ll find as awesome and exciting as we did!
