New Modified Script: script_story2_v1_april27

 

 

There are huge changes made in the versions. The numerous changes made to the video are all based off of the feedback gathered this week which is nearly 20 in number. The most common piece of feedback was to clean up the video and to give the viewer more detail on how the user interacts with the device. For this I  edited my story and script a lot to make sure all the feedbacks are taken into account.

I have incorporated many changes as outlined below: I added interaction of the user with the device. I have given quite a detailed introduction of my user as well as the device she is using. I have stretched the video long enough to go beyond 2 minutes and 9 seconds but earlier it was just 53 seconds. I also showed the physical prototype by making wonder woman’s bracelet using paper, sticky notes to show the screen as shown in the photos below.

I have added all the screens that shows step by step how wonder woman using her bracelet on her wrist to kill enemy. I even added wonder woman’s photo instead of the hand drawn photos to make sure it looks more real as the hand drawn photos are not always very impressive.
I almost modifies 90 percent of my video to give it a better look and feel , for this I even had to change the my script a lot to make sure the flow of the story is maintained well enough. I added animation and visual effects to all the video slides a s necessary. I added text to the second last slide to make sure its more clear  how much the villagers of Amazon are grateful to Wonder Woman. Out of the 20 slides I didn’t add animation for nearly four slides (including slides numbers 3.5, 3.6, 3.7, 3.8, 3.9 ) to make sure the photos are not just seen for few seconds which makes it difficult to interpret.

The biggest thing I did in this version was making the bracelet more like the bracelet from the comics.This major change is to implement the physical prototype because when I started making it I had to actually think of every button and each screen and to keep it simple instead of showing the screens on the physical prototype I used the place beside the hand to show by zooming out what exactly is going on in that particular screen. Finally added the left hand to help the viewers understand where the user is selecting each item and how the interact with the device. I added the multiple hoops around the screen that is seen in the original device.Adding these hoops allowed me to easily show the viewer how Wonder Woman  uses the screen from the beginning to the bend. I actually created a physical prototype out of tape, paper, post it, adhesive and a paper clip (see below) to get the correct angle of using the device.

I did not introduce new buttons or feature as suggested by a viewer, to the device because I believe there are almost more than sufficient number of screens showing how the device works. The steps to operate the device are quite simple , that too has been well explained in the video, so I did not find it to be a very important thing that is missing. Another change I didn’t implement is the addition of 1 minute introduction as expected by a viewer who has less knowledge about wonder woman. I think 1 minute introduction is really boring and  the video should concentrate on the interaction rather than the background of the user and the device.
