With "Who gets a Ventilator" our hope was to create awareness and spur action regarding the patchwork triage system in place guiding the distribution of ventilators in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The clock was ticking: COVID cases were on the rise and federal authorities were slow to give guidance regarding ventilator assignment and triage. The stakes, however, were clear: a patchwork system would leave individual healthcare systems and doctors to decide - putting an even greater burden on beleagured healthcare workers and patients.
After animation was locked, we composed the music in a live recording over the piece to give it a more organic and thoughtful feel, we then fleshed the music out to be artfully appealing without being a distraction from the information.
