Short 10-second title sequence for my DART 381 class (Digital Concepts and Multimedia) for a 2-minute infographics video on breast cancer.

Animation created by Roxanne Desrosiers (2013).

For educational purposes, the music used in this video is an instrumental version of Atlas, by Coldplay (2013).

Obviously, I decided to do the opening sequence on pinkwashing, so I will be able to reuse it for  my final video. I kept the general aesthetics that I presented in my proposal, so that there will be a certain unity between the title sequence and the infographics itself. Music and sound effects have not been added to the titling sequence, since I have not yet decided if music or a voiceover will be used in the final video.

One of the graphic elements that will be used in my animated infographics video.

One of the graphic elements that will be used in my animated infographics video.

The main goal of my project is to create a clear animated infographics video that will inform viewers about breast cancer and the marketing of its symbol, the pink ribbon. My animated video will start with the data: I will give the viewer a few general facts about the disease. Then, I will give a global picture of the marketing of breast cancer (and of the pink ribbon), in order to raise awareness in the viewer of the irony that lays behind this so-called “noble cause”, and highlight the need for harmony in the many organizations that represent it. I will use animated simple graphic elements, quotes and typography (itself animated), as well as sound and visual effects in order to bring to life this delicate subject matter. Also, I plan to have narration in my video: it will most likely be a female voice, that will tell the story in a rather humorous tone. By doing so, I hope to touch my audience, as well as make them realize the urgency to act and ask questions in order to find the proper cure and finally put an end to the epidemic that is breast cancer.
