COVID-19 Infection and Vaccine Development Animation


In this educational animation, we explore how COVID-19 vaccines work, first by understanding how SARS-Coronavirus-2 spreads and infects the body and how vaccines expose our immune system to parts of the virus in order to trigger an antibody response.

The creation of this video was made possible due to Random42 receiving an Epic MegaGrant towards the end of 2020. This was used to enhance our medical animation and interactive capabilities utilizing Epic Games’ Unreal Engine; the world’s most open and advanced real-time 3D creation tool.

With this rare opportunity, our team could develop a new real-time approach to our animations that has expanded the possibilities of what we can achieve creatively. The MegaGrant was used to create this educational animation on COVID-19 infection and vaccine development, our first animation made entirely in Unreal Engine, with final pixels rendered from Unreal.

The COVID-19 Infection and Vaccine Development Animation has won 3 Global Industry Awards.

‘‘Their turnaround time sets them apart from the rest of the field. The fact they can turnaround lots of comments in a couple of days is impressive, whereas that took weeks with other agencies we worked with. They’re well above the benchmark.

‘‘It was a combination equally of quality of work but also the comfort and confidence that I knew I would be working with PhDs. They gave me the confidence that they would have the ability to understand. The other companies didn’t have those sorts of people on staff, they were just good animators. That was the area where I felt that I could trust Random42 would deliver.’’
