The process of cell division, animated in sixty seconds flat.

Director's Notes:

In biology we were told that to understand mitosis the best thing to do is to watch animations, and not content with watching one on the internet, I thought I would have a go myself!

I used Serif Drawplus to animate the stages of mitosis in one minute. There were quite a few technical difficulties along the way, but I’m quite happy with how it came out! I like bright colours, and I think that comes across…

SciCast Notes:

Lovely, and a terrific companion piece to one of the very early SciCast workshop films. Hard to say which one’s more clear — which do you prefer?
