Does your zip code directly affect your life expectancy? The answer might surprise you.
With the help of George Takei as narrator, Boston’s very own Black Math is back with this intriguing new animation.
Coming in at a whopping 4:33, “A Tale of Two Zip Codes” tells the story of life expectancy and the alarming fact that even adjacent communities can have a 15-year difference in how long we live.
To me, this piece does a wonderful job in representing the power of animation. Not only is “A Tale of Two Zip Codes” a great example of 2D animation and design but — more importantly — it’s a great example of animation conveying a dense topic in an engaging and informative way.
Head on over to Black Math for some more insight into how they brought this project to life.
