Danger: radioactive. Just outside Carlsbad, New Mexico, the U.S. government is storing radioactive waste (left over from the production of nuclear weapons) that will remain deadly for at least 10,000 years. How can we warn people living that far in the future? As part of the pilot for a PBS show about design, filmmaker Chris Wilcha told the story of the development of these special warning signs. On a limited budget, we produced animated sequences for the film that explain where the facility is located, what is stored there, and how the goverment plans to tell people to stay away.
