Energize – the battery for the home and office

With increasing attention on the conservation of energy around the globe, in the second project of the Video Prototyping week we had the opportunity to shoot and edit one full video, experiencing the complete process.

By taking on a narrative tone, the Energize scenario tried to convey the story of the main character changing her behaviour from non-energy conscious to energy conscious, after experiencing a blackout incident in her home. The video also featured an online interface which the main character used to request energy transfer in order to recharge the appliances in her home and light it up again.

This second Video Prototyping project allowed us not only to sharpen our video editing skills, but also to get a feeling for the artistic process of video shooting. We went through many sessions of story building, frame set up, shooting and reshooting – deepening our insights each time.
