AANChOR

All AtlaNtic Cooperation for Ocean Research and innovation

Mission: To help building an alliance of marine science institutions across the Atlantic, North and South, and to invite scientists from around the world to come together and support this great transatlantic cooperation initiative. The main ambition of AANChOR is to promote the implementation of the South Atlantic Research and Innovation Flagship initiative and the Belém Statement (BS), signed by the EU, Brazil and South Africa in 2017, to upscale research and innovation cooperation within the Atlantic basin, from Antarctica to the Arctic.

Approach: Motion collage to integrate material in different formats: video footage with sound bites from main project co-chairs, kinetic typography with key messages, stock and provided photos and existing iconographic material and logos.

MARDUINO

Marduino: my buoy, our data and the ocean

Mission: To present MARDUINO project. This crowd science project aims to increase people’s awareness of seawater quality. MARDUINO proposes the design of a low budget DIY sea buoy: KdUINO buoy. The buoy allows citizens to measure seawater transparency. Scientists are able to forecast changes in seawater quality by analyzing its transparency variations.

Approach: Introductory video filmed in studio and outdoors during one of the research group field trips. Motion graphics used to explain some of the concepts.

KdUINO

Kduino, DIY sea buoy

Mission: To show how to build KdUINO buoy step by step. KdUINO is a low budget DIY sea buoy that allows citizens to measure seawater transparency. Scientists are able to forecast changes in seawater quality by analyzing its transparency variations. KdUINO is part of the MARDUINO project.

Approach: Step-by-step video filmed in studio.

PHYTOSCOPE

Phytoplankton biodiversity multiscale characterization using advanced optical technologies

Mission: To present PHYTOSCOPE project. The aim of this project, funded by the Total Foundation, is to demonstrate the feasibility of high-resolved oceanographic optical data for better understanding of phytoplankton biodiversity and dynamics. The overall objective of PHYTOSCOPE is to demonstrate the usefulness of high-resolved oceanographic data (in the three domains: spatial, temporal and taxonomical) for better discrimination of phytoplankton composition and dynamics, related to small and large scale processes.

Approach: Documentary. Filmed during one of the field trips to the project’s study area, the Alfacs Bay, a Southern coastal embayment of the Ebro Delta in the NW Mediterranean Sea. Motion graphics used to explain some of the concepts.

BIOMASA

Energy from the forest

Mission: To present the benefits of using biomass in its different formats as a source of energy and how this can help to forest sustainability.

Approach: Infomercial filmed at different locations suggested by the client. Animated infographics used.
