Status: Closed Time to complete: 504 hrs Mentors: Peli, Friedger Müffke, Randy McEoin, aap, Manuel R. Ciosici Tags: Android

The task is to create a 30-60 second video to promote OI File Manager. The video shall enhance the experience for the OI File Manager Market description. You have all artistic freedom in creating the video. The video can be based on real life situations in which the application is used on a real Android device (e.g. use file manager to manage photos).

All third party content used (images, background music, sound effects, ...) must be available by an open license without fees (freeware or creative commons license). The origin of contents must be mentioned in the description of the video and/or in the credits.

IMPORTANT: Before you start, get early in touch with OpenIntents developers to discuss your concept. Optionally you may send early drafts of your concept or previous video work. If you do not present your concept at an early stage, OpenIntents reserves the right not to accept your final video entry.

I would like to work on this task.

Billy on November 28 2011 22:56 UTC Idea

For my idea i'm thinking of doing a relatively humurous/overly dramatic video in which the main character forgot their homework at home but was able to pull it up on their phone and access it and turn it in by using OI File Manager. To keep the video entertaining, it is going to focus more on the journey rather than all of the features -- however it would still showcase the app as being the key to the main character's evenual A+ on the project. Would this be an acceptable idea for a video or would you like something less entertaining and more informative?

Peli on November 29 2011 23:48 UTC Good

This sounds like a great idea. I'm looking forward to seeing the video :-)

The work on this task is ready to be reviewed.

Peli on December 3 2011 23:13 UTC Wow :-)

Really nice :-)

Would it be difficult to replace the final graphics by something more similar to the OI File Manager appearance in Android Market?


The graphics are available here:


Also, please add a YouTube annotation with a link directly to the Market page of OI File Manager, if that's possible.

Billy on December 4 2011 00:03 UTC Changes

I replaced the ending logo with the one from the Android market and added an annotation showing the url of the app. Unfortunately YouTube will only let me hyperlink to another video (or other YouTube-related thing) so I also inluded the hyperlink in the description.
