An ad for Netflix VR, bringing your favourite romantic scenes to life

Since this course was about filmmaking, we got inspired by movies and came up with the idea of a character falling in love with actresses in various movies as he is zapping through content.

We started by browsing on Youtube a lot of iconic dialogues from movies with love stories. Our selected actor, Mariano, using VR, will then be replacing the original actor. The dialog and voice will still be the same but the actor’s face will be different.

To define the various shots needed for each scene, we first created a script breakdown that defined which probes were needed, what sounds, the quality of light, the camera movement, the transitions… By using the script breakdown, we then created a visual storyboard. Both were our guide during the film shooting.

Our main challenge was to reproduce the different movie lightings and frames for each movie selected. By using a screenshot of the original actor shot, we adjusted stage lights, reflectors and camera.

This project provided us with insights and skills into movie production.

The library living in Umeå’s infrastructures

After reading the brief, we decided to frame our question around exploring how the academic library could open itself to people in Umeå.

How might we improve learning through spaces and infrastructures in Umeå Municipality?

As designers, we were involved in the process of making, telling and enacting the workshop we had to organized. We ideated on activities and created a workshop toolkit in order to involve participants (such as maps, matrixes, use of post-its…) We enacted the workshop before running it with participants  which helped us to decide activities and their outcomes.

Organizing a workshop was an opportunity for us to train this skill in a safe environment in order to implement it in our future design project at school and in the industry.

I was interested in the potential of Makey Makey for rapid prototyping and never took the time to experiment with it. Makey Makey is a tool to turn everyday objects into touchpads by using a keyboard stroke or mouse click signal. It can be combined with a computer program like Processing.

I experimented with various conductive input materials such as modeling clay, foil, my classmates hands. At the same time I was experimenting with sound and shapes output on Processing.

I embedded Makey Makey into a participative object which invites people into a circle. One participant must put one hand in the middle as it is the connection to the ground. By touching the foil and the hand in the middle, participants conduct electricity. Participants can touch each other hands to create a mix of sounds and shapes enabling the creation of a participative piece of art.
