3. GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY
Case of D and D
Back in the United States, the attorney had a serious power of making revolutions. One such was about to happen in Drunk and Drive cases. Yes, innocent drivers too were convicted as accused, because of the discrepancies in the procedure to be followed in checking the blood samples by means of Gas Chromatography.
In fact, no good explanation of the procedure too is available on the web. The idea of creating live videos was dropped as it would make even matters worse. The only option they were left with was creating an Animated video.
The concept of Gas Chromatography had the 160-page document which would be pretty hard to explain. The video was so made with a seamless concept that even a layman would grab it with ease.
So from the question of “what more can a video do” to “What not a video can do”, animated videos have come a long way. From winning funds to defending an accused it has defied the odds of winning anything.
Videos have thus progressed to make entrepreneurs think about the fact that “Pixels can make their business to Excel”. A bunch of IMAGES can create a VIDEO, but that VIDEO can create an IMAGE for you.
