define the scenes and shots and types of animation that will explain medical products and procedures for the intended audience.
Unlike most of our competitors we skip the storyboard phase and create a rough animatic because we’ve found this give our clients a better understanding of the final animation faster than attempting to draw each scene out with pencil sketches. Because they can be edited in real-time, we can save as much as several weeks to several months in the production process over traditional animation production techniques. We time this animatic to fit the script for the voiced narration perfectly from the very beginning.
After the camera animation, basic object placement, and timing is established in the animatic, we optimize CAD models from our clients for their custom instruments and devices and rig them up to interact with our medically accurate anatomy models. The result is the accuracy of engineered devices and instruments and cinematic quality anatomy and pathology that helps the audience understand the procedure and treatment faster with greater clarity than any other form of media.
Look Development is established by rendering a key shots and scenes so that that client can see what the final animation will look like.
We render the animation using the fastest GPU rendering farm ever built. While it isn’t quite real time yet, we’re getting closer every day and we’re able to produce entire medical animations with photorealism and hyperrealism that our competitors simply cannot achieve.
We combine all the 3D rendered layers together and add additional information like text callouts and superimposed graphics elements to help audience comprehension.
We then combine the voiced narration, sound effects and music to create a polished final movie.
We deliver the completed animation in a pristine 4k movie file along with a complete library of additional video formats that can be instantly shared on social media outlets.
Just because we completed the animation doesn’t mean we’re done. When you partner with Ghost Medical, you aren’t buying an animation, you are investing in content that will solve your problems and achieve your goals and we’re not done until we’ve delivered a return on your investment. So we’re committed to ensuring that what we make for you works for you.
Ghost Production's Wraith VR Surgical Simulations team follows the Agile Development Method in order to deliver high-quality virtual reality surgical simulations that meet the needs of our customers. This approach involves regularly reassessing and adjusting project goals based on feedback from users and stakeholders.
At the start of a project, we work with our clients to define the overall mission and scope of the simulation. From there, we break the project down into smaller, manageable chunks or phases, with each phase resulting in a new or updated version of the simulation. This allows us to continuously refine and improve the product as we go, rather than waiting until the end of the project to make changes.
One key aspect of the Agile Development Method is the regular communication and collaboration between team members and stakeholders. We hold frequent meetings to review progress, discuss challenges, and gather feedback. This helps us stay on track and ensures that the simulation is meeting the needs of those who will be using it.
Another benefit of the Agile Development Method is that it allows us to quickly respond to any changes or challenges that may arise during the project. If a user finds a bug or has a suggestion for improvement, we can address it in the next phase of development rather than waiting until the end of the project.
Overall, the Agile Development Method enables Ghost Production's Wraith VR Surgical Simulations team to deliver high-quality, user-focused virtual reality surgical simulations that meet the needs of our clients. By continuously reassessing and adjusting our goals based on feedback and collaboration, we can ensure that our simulations are effective and valuable for those who use them.

It is important to note that Ghost Medical has developed a proprietary 3D animation process that is highly specialized to create computer generated medical animation. We’ve spent the last 30 years refining this process and building the anatomy and pathology 3D models and rendering technologies required to accurately and efficiently visualize incredibly complex medical procedures and biological concepts.
The production methods developed by Ghost Medical vary different from those used by our competitors and this is how we produce significantly higher quality animation in significantly less time.
For instance, most 3D animation producers spend weeks drawing storyboards before building anything in 3D. We’ve found that we can deliver a better product 25% faster by pre-visualizing the animation as a real-time rendered 3D animation instead of creating traditionally drawn 2D storyboards.
We also deliver our draft animations to our clients using a revolutionary content markup and review tool called Frame. This allows our clients to draw right on the animation and record notes and instructions on as they watch the movie. Not only does Frame making content review fast and easy, but it ensures that every detail is logged like a checklist so that every single tiny issue is dealt given the attention it deserves.
