Promotion video for OI Safe OpenIntents
Status: Closed Time to complete: 504 hrs Mentors: Peli, Randy McEoin, Friedger Müffke, Manuel R. Ciosici Tags: Android

The task is to create a 30-60 second video to promote OI Safe. The video shall enhance the experience for the OI Safe 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. secret scene to add top secret password). 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.

Hans Wurst on January 2 2012 15:25 UTC I would like to do that

I personally dont like reallife videos about apps, which doesnt contains the features from the app, so my concept is:


-a ~5 Second Text Animation with the Text "OpenIntents presents OI Safe" or sth(you can also suggest a text)


-Then a big read able Feature text and after that the video of the emulator which showing that feature(for example "Different Categories" and then Ill add for example a category fast in the emulator


- Ill repeat that above for all features


-Ill put cool CC Background music on it


 


Thats my concept, if its ok, ill claim this task

Hans Wurst on January 2 2012 18:48 UTC Task Claimed

I would like to work on this task.

Peli on January 2 2012 20:51 UTC Task Assigned

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

Peli on January 2 2012 20:56 UTC Features

Let us know which features you would like to present.


One could also mention that OI Safe works with OI Notepad (and in the latest version in the trunk also with OI File Manager - but this has not been released yet).


The starting text could just be "OI Safe".. the less to read the better :-)


High-quality promotion graphics are also here:


http://code.google.com/p/openintents/source/browse/#svn%2Ftrunk%2Fsafe%2Fpromotion%2Fmarket

Hans Wurst on January 3 2012 16:03 UTC Features was the wrong word

Features was probably the wrong word. This will be in the video after the Intro, im not a native english speaker, so the words could be shortened by you:


Enter One Password to see all Passwords;Then Ill enter the password


Different Categories;Then ill add a new category


Entries can include other Informations;Then Ill add a new password and a URL and username for this


Password generator; Then Ill generate a Password and save it


Backup Passwords encrypted to SD-Card;Then Ill backup them


AES-Secured Saving; Ill open the backup file using root explorer


And the end will be a text:"There are also other features!


Download OI Safe now from the market; It's free!"


 


What means OI Safe works with OI Notepad, can i import notes into OI Safe?


 


 


 

Peli on January 3 2012 21:22 UTC OI Notepad

You can encrypt notes in OI Notepad, and they will be encrypted with the same master password that you use for OI Safe. Try it out :-)


 


Suggested phrases:


* A single password...     (show login)


...for all your other passwords   (show long list of all passwords)


* Different Categories


* Custom notes


* Password generator


* Backup Passwords


* Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)


* Works with OI Notepad


* Download OI Safe from Android Market


* It's free and open source!


 

Hans Wurst on January 7 2012 22:24 UTC Longer?

Should I reduce the phrases or am i allowed to make a video longer than a minute(the final length will be under 2 min)?

Peli on January 7 2012 22:32 UTC Best features

Probably it is better to reduce the size to under 1 minute by picking just the best features. Drop anything that looks similar to something else that has been shown already. Otherwise not everyone may watch it until the end.

Hans Wurst on January 9 2012 17:05 UTC Ready, pls choose your fav. music

So Im ready, but I want you to decide the music and the length:


I would take this music:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CHeGlcxqtlM


I uploaded also this video with another music, the length is also different to the other video, I made the ending text longer compared to the other video, because I dont know if you really need a video under 1 minute:


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mXPQ3NRZRMg


So pls tell me if you want the music from the first or second and if you need a video under 1 minute or 1:03 is ok, then Ill upload this combination(I didnt uploaded all combinations, because my internet connection sucks) and make it public.

Hans Wurst on January 10 2012 15:25 UTC Ready for review

The work on this task is ready to be reviewed.

Peli on January 11 2012 00:54 UTC Both

Both version are good :-)


I wonder, is there anything you can do about the flicker when you show the logo at the beginning? (it somehow fits to the faster song, but not so much to the slower song). Also, there is the black bar at the top and bottom. Maybe you could zoom less or zoom slower, but try not to have any black bar?


Since you cut your scenes very quickly and fast-forwared the emulator sections, I think the fast music fits better.


Sometimes, it is almost cut too soon: 


* "Different categories": Once you enter a category, and return to the main screen, there is no time to see the main screen. Could this be just a few tenths of seconds longer (making the following title a bit shorter?)


* "Custom notes": The note entered can not really be seen, because again the section is cut quickly. Just a little bit shorter would make it more comfortable to read what has been written.


* "Password generator": Same here: if you click "Copy to Current Entry", the follwing activity is shown so quickly that one can not see what changed.


Can you end the video again with the icon of OI Safe? (can be static)


The other promotion videos included the music license directly in the video - you did it in the caption. If you include it in the video, it doesn't matter if the video gets longer than one minute by a few seconds.


Maybe with these changes, the slower music is better, because it gives a soothing feeling, and one should have a good feeling if one wants to store sensitive information, right?

Peli on January 12 2012 07:44 UTC Very good

This is really nice!


There is just one small thing - I don't know if you can do something about it:


Whenever there is this animated 3D text - there seems to be 1 frame at the end (barely visible), where the 3D animation jumps back to its initial position (or to a 2D version?).


E.g. look at the text "for all other passwords": Watch it grow slowly, but at the end there is a frame where the text jumps back to its initial position, and then the emulator screenshot starts.


Can one get rid of this one frame? It seems to happen after EVERY 3D text, and it is a bit irritating. (at first I only saw some kind of flickering without knowing exactly what it was, but if you concentrate, you can see the original text centered like in the beginning of the animation, and the position of the waves in the background also changes for a tiny fraction of a second - always at the end of the 3D animation).

Peli on January 12 2012 21:22 UTC Music

Please put a new music track again on top of this.


Now with every frame you removed, there is a sound glitch.


Just remove the music and put completely new music on top of this.

Hans Wurst on January 13 2012 14:18 UTC good eyes

You have very good eyes, after every title there was the beginning frame two frames long, so I didnt noticed it and i also didnt thinked about the music when i cutted the frames out. So final work is here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEmztifwGNk
