For my Master of Fine Arts Thesis, I am working with Dr. John Heflin and Dr. David Borkholder to create patient materials for children with scoliosis and their caregivers to create a more comprehensive understanding of the disease and the surgical treatment related to it. One component of the patient education materials is an interactive 3D model comparison of a healthy spine and a spine with scoliosis created in Autodesk Maya and uploaded to Sketchfab.

An animation describing the surgical treatment, Spinal Fusion with Magnetic Growing Rods is another patient education material that I created. For this animation, I wrote the script, created assets related to each scene, and created the storyboard slide show below to. 

Once the storyboard was approved, I used Autodesk Maya and Adobe AfterEffects to create the final animation for patients and caregivers.
