The presented scenario introduces Mario, and describes his experience of using a smart energy meter given to him by his energy company. It shows that Mario does not understand what the information provided to him by the smart meter might mean to him in practical terms – or how he might reduce his unexpectedly high utility bill. The sketched-out service add-on for the meter gives him an interpretation of his energy usage, making suggestions based on his current usage that might help to reduce his energy consumption – and lower his bill in the process.

Following a brief discussion of story-boarding, planning, shooting, and editing, we had a day to create the first low resolution sketch of the service. After feedback on both the concept and on the technical aspects of film-making we had a day and a half to shoot and edit a version with slightly higher production values.
