This video is an industrial video that goes over perlite problems. Perlite is an amorphous volcanic glass that has a relatively high water content, typically formed by the hydration of obsidian. It occurs naturally and has the unusual property of greatly expanding when heated sufficiently. It is an industrial mineral and a commercial product useful for its low density after processing.
In this video perlite is responsible for keeping any number of cold boxes, tanks and tankers insulated. After capturing the video with our Blare Films production team we sent the content to our pos-production facility. There illustrator Doug Morris, head of blare post, Jason Wada, created animated sequences to provide visual richness to an otherwise mundane mechanical process. These graphics and animations, when combined with a specific style of documentary videography, serve to explain and illustrate the mineral giant’s perlite capabilities simply and effectively.
