TED-Ed: The Moon Illusion

In the summer of 2013, I submitted a video concept to TED-Ed, the makers of these fabulous animated lessons. To my surprise and excitement, they selected my idea to create a video on the perplexing “moon illusion” – the phenomenon in which the moon appears larger when it is rising/setting than when it is overhead.

The first step in the process was to write a script, then the TED-Ed team selected an animator who created a storyboard version of the video before producing the finished product.

The animators and the TED-Ed team did such an awesome job turning this concept into an amazing piece of educational artwork. I’m super excited that I ws able to be a part of the creative process. Enjoy the video here.
