"Bionet Interview Video" 4 mins. Produced by Phil Ross & Lindsay Irving. Film and Editing by Marcella Faustini and Andreas Tagger. Graphics, UX/UI design, and motion by Daryll Peirce.

"Bionet Procedural-1 Video" 2.54 mins. Produced by Phil Ross & Lindsay Irving. Film and Editing by Marcella Faustini and Andreas Tagger. Graphics, UX/UI design, and motion by Daryll Peirce.

"Bionet Procedural-2 Video" 2.19 mins. Produced by Phil Ross & Lindsay Irving. Film and Editing by Marcella Faustini and Andreas Tagger. Graphics, UX/UI design, and motion by Daryll Peirce.

Type: Three conceptual videos
Date: January - March 2016
Collaborators: Biobricks Foundation, Stanford University Department of Bioengineering, and independent motion graphics and film specialists, Daryll Peirce, Marcella Faustini & Andreas Tagger. 
Description: Three procedural videos describing the bionet – an open technology platform for peer-to-peer exchange of biomaterials and associated data. The videos employ conceptual UX/UI journeys for desktop and mobile devices to educate prospective bionet users and demonstrate how the bionet reduces transaction costs associated with sharing biological materials among researchers and institutions. The videos were created as an outreach and educational tool for the BioBricks Foundation to gather support for the bionet program.
Roles & Duties: Producer

  • Produced and managed a team of engineers, artists, and scientists.
  • Hired and managed film and editing specialists.
  • Co-managed the shoots on location and in-studio production and post-production needs. 
  • Hired and managed motion graphics specialist for brand identity design and the design and execution of conceptual user journeys associated with the technology.
  • Scriptwriting, storyboarding, user-journey designs and managed the integration of graphics and animations with live action film.
  • Developed and managed the overall production schedule and budgets.

Coast Redwood Forests and Climate Change (animation), 2009

Type: Animation sequence for online and immersive platforms.

Collaborators: Center for Applied Biodiversity Informatics (CABI) and the Visualization Studio at the California Academy of Sciences, Save the Redwoods League

Date: December 2009

Description: A preliminary experiment between biologists, computer scientists, and GIS technicians in the CABI lab and technical directors in the Visualization Studio at the California Academy of Sciences. Historic, present, and future habitat ranges of Coast Redwood (Sequoia sempervirens) forests were modeled using 16 global circulation models (GCM's) into the year 2100 under 2 greenhouse gas emissions scenarios from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) 4th Assessment Report. Under an "optimistic" (B1) outcome, in which CO2 levels in the atmosphere remain low, much of the current coast redwood habitat remains. Under a "pessimistic" (A2) outcome, in which we continue emitting greenhouse gasses at the current rate, much of the current habitat for coast redwood is no longer suitable. This experiment to visualize Earth based data in an immersive software platform led to the development of a new kinds of live public programing about biodiversity science, conservation, and climate change in the Morrison Planetarium.  

Roles & Duties: Production Coordinator

  • Data visualization using GIS to visualize and export climate and habitat data into Uniview, a visualization software used to display data in the Morrison Planetarium.
  • Coordinated with technical directors to render and animate the sequence using Maya.
  • Storyboarding and asset research and acquisition. 

Financial support: The Simpervirens Fund and Save the Redwoods League. 

redwood forests and climate change, animated sequence and video, 2009

Type: Video released in exhibits and online.

Collaborators: Center for Applied Biodiversity Informatics (CABI) and the Visualization Studio at the California Academy of Sciences, Save the Redwoods League.

Date: December 2009

Description: Audience response to the redwoods and climate change programming in the Morrison Planetarium led to the production of a Science Today story featuring the work of CABI and Save the Redwoods League to raise awareness about the impacts of climate change on a beloved and iconic California species. I worked with the Visualization Studio and Science Today staff on data research, cartography, treatment, and storyboard development. (sequence occurs at 2:35) 

Roles & Duties: Biodiversity Data Coordinator
