An engaging, narrative driven animation that does not feel like a cartoon, but more like a documentary or news report

This animation had to do a number of things: 1) cover some key facts as infographics; 2) tell a human story that would make the theory more relateable; and 3) appeal to an audience of developing world military officials who would may not respond to anything that felt like a cartoon.
In the end, the solution I came up with drew heavily on photography and the aesthetics of journalism. Although the narrative scenes ultimately had to be imagined, animated sequences, I was able to blend photography into the compositions, and I stuck to a colour palette that was sympathetic to the gritty military reality of the content.
