So after some deliberation and an inspiring email from Prof. Miller, I have decided instead of doing some animations I am going to do videos for my Myth Busters.
The idea behind this is showing myths that are busted every day by real life pit bulls. I demonstrated that with links to videos supporting the myths that I found. I feel a lot more confident that I can pull of this intention by putting together videos with some small animations in the beginning introducing the video compilation. I want to tell a story, granted it will only probably be a 30-60 second story, nonetheless I want to tell those stories with real life examples.
Here is what I would like the display to look like. I have labeled each of the elements and will explain them by letter below the image.
A. Video compilations will play inside of a shape with a screen overlay. Not sure how to pull that off but think I will need some sort of video mapping. This shape is a water color circle that is part of the Love Lucca brand. The compilations will be triggered to play when the conductive ink it touched. Each compilation will start with the myth that is being busted and then the video of each of the “real life” stories will play with narration.
B. Silhouettes Painted with Conductive Paint each of these silhouettes will represent the truth behind the myth ie. the first myth will be “Once a Fighting Dog Always a Fighting Dog” and then the video compilation of two different police dogs will start playing. The second myth is “But Wait, I Heard Pit Bulls Are Inherently Vicious” and the video of pit bulls playing with other dogs and kids will play. The third myth is “Doesn’t Banning Pit Bulls Make People Safer” and the video of all the pit bulls that saved lives and are service dogs and best friends will play. think this will definitely be a bulk of the work.
C. Vinyl Stickers will include Love Lucca Logo and tagline in two different sizes, Vinyl Paw Prints for the floor, Adopt and Sign up Stickers and finally the Title of the display (still working on that).
D. Ipad Display This will house images, would love it to be an interactive email sign up piece but not sure I have time for that and a single image of a webpage…definitely don’t have time to build that. Would love advice on how to make these pieces more interactive.
In summary this display will need a projector for playing the videos and wiring to have the conductive ink trigger the play process. I could use some help on how to make this more modular but I think the overall idea is there and I am sure that I can get these video compilations done…just have to put my premiere hat on.
Would love to layout a timeline but as I have never built a conductive display I will need a bit of guidance on how long some of the moving parts will take. I believe I can have the video’s done in 8-16 hours. So I guess I will start there once this display is approved.
