CGI artist Scott Meador and graphics supervisor Jim Lockhart took us inside the body, creating moving imagery of the HIV replication cycle hypothesis. This video simultaneously compares the basic grey 3D model concept, the 3D render, and the final composite. All graphics were built from scratch in house specifically for House of Numbers. Portions of this sequence were used in a section of the documentary, How much do we really know about HIV?
Interviewee voices in order of appearance: Brent Leung, Narrator, Dr. David Ho, Dr. Anthony Fauci, Dr. David Baltimore, Dr. John Moore, Dr. Michael Gottlieb.
The animation was created using Blender, an open-source 3D animation application (http://www.blender.org), and was composited using Adobe After Effects. 16 Apple iMac 2GHz duo core computers were used to render the final frames at 1920×1080 pixels. Average rendering time was 11 minutes per frame with a total of 2338 frames.
