This infographic narrates the data and causes that explain the closure of the Suez Canal due to the merchant ship Ever Given that caused the stoppage in world maritime traffic
The opening infographic accumulated many pages viewed since it brought the reader closer to the measurements and dimensions of the ship and the canal.
We use 3D modeling and animation in 3D and 2D edited in after effects and then developed in scrolling amp stories from google through video sequences in mp4
What was the hardest part of this project?
The most complicated was the modeling of the ship, and obtaining the real measurements of the same and the channel, as well as the route data and satellite images.
What can others learn from this project?
Journalists can see one more example of voice narrative as a means of approaching events
