The final IDV project is to take the data provided by Paul (death penalty statistics https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AonYZs4MzlZbdGJiUzRwTVhlM25DWDlPdjBmNURjOUE#gid=0) and to transform them into an easily understood graphic. I decided to begin by looking at what Im aiming to complete. I’ve always like the videos that present statistics in an easily read and understandable video using typography and 3d elements. My idea is to take the data and convert it into a colour coordinated pie chart. Then I intend to model a sphere in Maya that would replicate this pie. This way I would be able to manipulate the data in Maya and it would look sweet as a nice glass of some Jim Beam. I would then use a video editing software to composition typography onto my scene. Here are some influential videos.
