In 2013-2014, I collaborated with the transportation team at RPA on a project that explored expediting the MTA's adoption of Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) on the New York City subway system.
A major component was the design and production of a video to explain how CBTC improves upon the existing fixed block signaling system. The process involved storyboarding, visual development, voice over recording, animation and editing. We also partnered with a production company to shoot footage highlighting additional constraints of the subways system and a composer to score the final video.
I also worked on the design and layout of Moving Forward: Accelerating the Transition to Communications-Based Train Control for New York City’s Subways, a report packaging our complete research and recommendations. Many of the graphics were planned and developed to be used both in the print report and to be animated for the video. The project also required production of a series of maps using data compiled by the transportation team detailing different aspects of the subway system and the surrounding area.
