Promotion video for OI Shopping List OpenIntents
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 Shopping List. The video shall enhance the experience for the OI Shopping List 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. scene at home to add an item, scene in the supermarket to check off an item). The video can also be based on emulator screencasts. It can either showcase the great diversity of features, or tell a captivating story.

Your solution should be a link to your YouTube video. The video format should be high-resolution (1280x720, YouTube HD Video). 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.

  • Difficulty: hard
  • Time limit: 21 days
  • Optional prerequisites: Download the Android SDK (instructions)
  • Requirements for completed entry:
    • IMPORTANT: Discuss your concept idea early with OpenIntents. OpenIntents reserves the right to refuse an entry if the concept has not been discussed previously.
    • Send a link to a 30-60 second YouTube video.
    • The video resolution must be high quality (1280x720, YouTube HD Video).
    • All screencasts must be based on the latest Android SDK emulator.
    • All media content used (images, music, sound effects) must be freely available (freeware or creative commons license).

This task has been assigned to Billy. You have 504 hours to complete this task, good luck!

aap on December 4 2011 15:38 UTC Please share your idea

Assigned because you have proven your abilities with your OI File Manager video. We would still like to hear about what you have in mind before you get too deeply into production.

Billy on December 9 2011 00:04 UTC Idea

My idea for this is that it's someone's birthday but alors there is no birthday cake! That person's friend runs to the super market to get all the ingredients to make a cake with the help of OI Shopping List. After returnng home and putting all the ingredients into a bowl, out pops a cake. Everyone is happy and then it goes to a cutscene with the OI Shopping List logo. (Additionally, would it be possible to provide the links to the higher definition version of the logo before tommorow evening so that they wouldn't have to be spliced in like last time?)
