NASA Contest: Storyboard for Six Animations for NASA Human Research Program (HRP)
- Durum: Pending
- Ödül: $500
- Alınan Girdiler: 31
The goal of this challenge is to create a storyboard for five short (~10 to 20-second) animations that describe what happens to the human body and mind in space to the general public. These animations should depict how the spaceflight environment affects astronauts' 1) anthropometry, 2) fluid shifts, 3) balance control, 4) muscles and 5) bones. A background summary is provided below and careful reading of the attached detailed descriptions is recommended. The winning solution(s) will be developed into animations via separate freelancer activities, for which submitters, and others are eligible to participate.
An additional storyboard, for a total of six storyboards, shall combine all five depictions.
The NASA HRP is challenged with communicating the physiological and psychological adaptations that astronauts undergo during spaceflight. Humans were built for Earth. When astronauts travel into space, their bodies and minds adapt to spaceflight in various ways. Trying to communicate these changes, either to the general public or to NASA leadership (many of whom do not have a medical background) is extremely difficult to do with words, charts and figures. Having a video/animation that would visually depict the changes would be of extreme benefit to our program. Although there are numerous adaptations that the human body and mind undergo in space, for this contest, the five identified below are amenable to short animated clips.
The attached word document provides a description of the desired storyboards in more detail along with example images and topic discussion points. Please start with the document titled “HRP_WOMAN3Notes_9July2019”; all other attachments are supplementary to that document. For more information about HRP: [login to view URL]
• Storyboard for five approximately 10 to 20-second videos or animations that describe the adaptations a human undergoes during spaceflight to a non-technical audience; i.e., the general public
• Storyboard for the compilation of the five videos or animations that is ~1-minute in length that stitches the five animations together (in a clean fashion)
• Each image of the storyboard should typically have a corresponding section of text or description
• Format should be pdf, illustrator, jpeg or other common image formats
• Depictions shall be anatomically correct so that the researchers/physiologists approve
• Use of the HRP logo is encouraged (artwork provided as attachment)
• The graphics/content can be used as references, but entry submissions shall be all original content or have the ability to provide image rights if the submission is selected.
• Quality: Does the submission look professional?
• Requirements: Does the submission meet the stated requirements?
• Clarity: Does the submission describe how the human body adapts in the five focus areas in terms understandable by the general public?
• Suitability: Is the submission suitable for implementation as a ~1-minute video/animation on a limited budget (e.g., car chases and explosions may exceed our budget)
• Stirs public interest
There may be multiple prizes awarded on this contest. The main winner will be awarded the full prize amount listed. Additional winners may be offered lesser prize amounts depending on the submission (i.e. a high quality or novel submission that only meets a portion of the requirements).
Please note that NASA employees/contractors are not eligible for competing in this contest.
