Here is my final outcome of my video for the Interaction Design – Field Module. I am quite happy with the final outcome as it is my first attempt of any type of movie and starting with stop motion is quite difficult to do in just a few days. After receiving my feedback which was pretty positive, there are a few things I will go back to and correct. These areas which were mentioned, for example, sound effects, were areas I was aware I needed to add but struggled. With a bit more work I will go back and try to push this video even further to produce a better outcome.
Filming my own video is something I have not experienced before, so with this project I am well outside my comfort zone. After seeing other videos being made by classmates I wanted to keep away from what appeared to be the norm of coming up with a product, making it on CAD software, then filming this piece moving. As making a video is something we haven’t been shown much of in Product Design, I wanted to make the most of this experience by producing something which may not of been thought of. I struggled to find an area I wanted to continue with so I started browsing through YouTube at existing videos. Above is a very short snippet of one of my first attempts I made of creating a moving video with Lego.
After being advised how company offices are becoming more involved with their playful sides, I came across this fantastic image which shows a variety of very well known companies worldwide. Having several jobs throughout my life, the most exciting of offices I have been near was that which had a free hot chocolate machine; not that i’m complaining.
