Now that we’re several weeks into 2014, we’ve finally been able to stop for a moment and take stock of 2013! From an audio tour to a custom online education platform, MediaCombo collaborated with new and long-standing clients on a remarkable range of projects.
In February of 2013 our research and script writing team set to work on this orientation film for the Centro Criollo de Ciencia y Tecnología, (C3TEC) the first science center in the Caribbean, in Caguas, Puerto Rico. Liberty Science Center’sMuseum Planning Services (LSC) consulted on the master plan and developed and designed the exhibition for the Municipality of Caguas.
The exhibition focuses on the theme of environmental sustainability, the interconnectedness of living systems and the relationships between a healthy body, a healthy Island and a healthy planet.
Our mission was to focus young visitors’ attention on this theme in a four-minute introductory video that plays in a viewing area each visitor passes through to enter the exhibition.
We went to Caguas to film Little League baseball players and local flora and fauna in May, so that we could situate our story right where most of the visitors to the science center live. We shot live action with a helicam and a Red camera, and commissioned original animations to visualize activity at the molecular level.
The video is narrated by Yamaris Latorre, a Puerto Rican celebrity, and will be available with English and Spanish subtitles. It will be installed at C3TEC in time for a soft opening in late spring 2014, but you can see the English language version here!
