The Ebola Economy is an award-winning documentary directed by Academy Award nominee Morgan Spurlock. It highlights how the pandemic impacted the World Trade Market and how affected countries responded to the health crisis. 

 

Taking over design direction, motion design, and animation, rezonate helped produce a powerfully narrated piece. 

Neat, futuristic, and computer-driven, the team helped conceptualize the expanding world of a pandemic by understanding the script well enough to sufficiently visualize it. Optimizing heavy typography, detailed iconography, and sharp lines, rezonate crafted compelling imagery for the documentary.  

 

Overall, it was keeping the heart and the objective of the narrative in mind that helped rezonate tell the story in the best way it could be told.
