Kilpailun tehtävänanto

The goal of this challenge is to demonstrate your animation skills by creating a (~10 to 20-second) animation from the provided fluid shifts storyboards that describes what happens to the human body and mind in space, to the general public without the need of using audio or text in the animation. The winning submission/animator will be assigned a $4000 USD task to create the remaining five animations related to 1,) anthropometry, 2.) balance control, 3) muscles, 4) bones, and 5.) fluid shifts covered in this contest and 6.) a summary of all five animations. Storyboards are provided below and careful reading of the below detailed descriptions is recommended.

Background

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, the five identified are amenable to short animated clips.

Submission Requirements
• A 10-20-second video or animation that describes what happens to the human body and mind in space, specifically fluid shifts, to a non-technical audience; i.e., the general public.
• The animation should be based on the attached storyboards, although editing to achieve the desired 10-20-second length is expected.
• Rewording of the storyboards is acceptable to improve clarity or to better convey key points.
• Departure of storyboard shots is acceptable to improve clarity or to better convey key points.
• Use of the NASA Logo is not permitted.
• The attached file <HRP_WOMAN3Notes_9July2019.docx> is being provided for supplemental information describing the physiological changes for all five animations.
• Submitter, if awarded as winner of this contest, desires and is available to complete the remaining five animations as an assigned task of $4,000 USD.

Encoding:
• Container: MP4 with no edit lists.
• Audio Codec: AAC-LC in stereo or stereo + 5.1 with a sample rate of 96khz or 48khz.
• Video Codec: H.264
• Frame Rate: The same rate the video was captured at.
• Bitrate: no fixed bitrates required.
• Resolution and aspect ratio: 16:9 aspect ratio at your preferred HD resolution.

Evaluation Criteria
• Quality: Does the submission look professional?
• Requirements: Does the submission meet the stated requirements?
• Clarity: Does the submission describe how the fluids shift in the human body in terms understandable by the general public?
• Originality
• Stirs public interest

Please note that NASA employees/contractors are not eligible for competing in this contest.

    Like many here I'm very disappointed with the final verdict . But as I suspected there were political considerations and motivations in play hence the big delay in choosing a winner. That said a huge disservice was done to those of us who followed the rules and guidelines. However if there is any consolation this was a POLITICAL decision not one based on quality.

    Frustrated seeing winning entry. Graphics tracking with the human finger is terrible. Not a professional work at all. Even Animation basics are not there.

    We're in the final minutes! Thanks for everyone's interest. This contest has been open for 6 weeks. At this point in time, we're not looking to extend out of respect for the 100+ entries we've gotten so far. If you can, get an example of your work in. After our review if none of the entries meet our criteria, we'll consider extending. Best of luck to you all.

      Hi Daniel, thank you for your interest. The vein dilates, meaning it expands in size. not just the inside. I hope that helps.

    Hi Nasa, i have a question about the plasma. Both the storyboard show the plasma like a cell, or plasma cell but plasma in medical illustration is represented like a yellow fluid.

      Hello Francesco, thank you for your interest. you are correct, plasma is fluid, the bloodstream has platelets, white blood cells, red blood cells, and various other metabolites, proteins, and biomolecular chemicals. Please use your best judgement to represent the images in your animation.
