The very first film we made for Hecklab was an introduction to the fascinating world of proteomics. The film’s concept consists of a clever combination of elements: animated overlays, metaphoric film shots, explanatory 3D animations, and stunning lab footage.

The proteomics film reached over 350,000 people. The film was picked up by The Washington Post, and massively shared on Facebook and YouTube.

A Clockwork Uncovered

This short and easy-to-follow animation explains one of Albert Heck’s discoveries: the oldest biological clock in the world. In quite simple imagery, the film explains how the biological clock of the cyanobacteria works. The science behind this is quite complex, but it is explained in a very understandable way in this short animation.
