Thoughts on storytelling and the world of animation. Caution! SPOILERS!

“Heal” – animation in the medical field

This animation, Heal, by Ghost Productions, was shared in a hobby group I belong to.  Frankly, I felt a little queasy by the end, so be warned!   The video depicts an accident, and follows it with the various ways broken bones and joints can be repaired (or even replaced!) through modern technology.

The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicholaes Tulp, by Rembrandt

Animation is a great way to illustrate medical processes and procedures without, y’know, having to be there and get bloody. (I guess it also saves on bodies needed for demonstrative purposes.)  If you need to have a hip replaced and want to understand the process better, it’s a lot easier to view a video than to watch it being done on someone else.

There are quite a few medical animations available on Youtube – check out the list on the right hand side, and see how well your stomach holds up!
