This is one of many Kurzgesagt videos I have been a part of during my time at the company as a full-time motion designer. This video is particularly dear to me, as it was the first one I had animated all by myself. This is special, as most animations by the company are devided into scenes and distributed amongst the animation team.
The animation is kept dark and moody, to overdramatise the subject matter. Although important, it turns out in the end of the story (spoiler alert!) that most of the parasites described, already have cures.
The design of the piece was at the sole discretion of the illustration team at Kurzgesagt.
