Drugs on the Brain (CGI Sequences)

We were commissioned by Magic Carpet Films to produce scientific motion graphics (cgi) sequences showing the effects of drugs on the brain at microscopic levels.
The films show the mechanism by which Dopamine and other chemicals are released into the synaptic gap between neurons, generating the feeling of intense pleasure that leads to addiction. The models were built by Nicolas Borel using 3D max and the rendered sequences were then overlaid with tracked visual overlays in After Effects.
