The Fields Medals are the highest awards in mathematics and presented every four years to four recipients.
I was given the opportunity to translate the work for two of the four recipients into animation to be shown at the International Math Union ceremony that broadcast globally on July 5th, 2022.
For this winner, James Maynard, I visualized his work with prime numbers and Diophantine Approximation to be more easily understood by a more general audience.
I was provided a section of the script and the name of the mathematician to research. From there I created and pitched storyboards, styleframes, and the implemented animation.
Animator and producer Kolin Pope provided final editing and animation assistance.
Process: Storyboards vs. Styleframes
