2nd Skull: Impact Protection for Athletes

branded content

I produced and edited this product video for 2nd Skull, which is a sports apparel start-up in Pittsburgh. Their team had invented a soft skullcap (or headband) that would harden immediately upon impact, similar to an airbag during a vehicle crash. I sensed this product would make waves in the sports world, given the influx of new studies and links being made between head injuries and CTE. Because of this video, the 2nd Skull team was given an opportunity to present to the NFL, and it was later awarded $100,000 to continue development. Amazing!

All animation was done inside of After Effects, with models being generated using the Element 3D plugin.
