This week was all about animating my scenarios to show exactly what Relay does and how it works. It was a relief to finally be able to demonstrate how these things were moving around in my head! There’s a lot of sliding elements and a few rotations to show how the whole thing works. It’ll help even more to have context shots that show how the device works directionally and spatially between people.

Here’s what I have so far. Keep in mind, this is just a rough draft of my video. But it gets the point across for now.

Directly exporting from Keynote screwed up the timing (for example, screens should quickly transition after selecting a mode), so I think I’m going to make some minor tweaks in AfterEffects this weekend. Doing that will allow me to add a voiceover too! (I’ll be captioned, of course.)

Next steps:

  • context shots!!
  • video timing tweaks (and narration voiceover/captions)
  • poster design
  • change the movie in the last scenario to something more appropriate for my new persona (she’s a kid, after all)
