For the last few weeks, we have been busy preparing a trip to berlin. We decided that a short trip to berlin was necessary to know the locations and the neighborhood and have a grasp of the exact conditions that we had to deploy the experience. This trip will serve a sort of experience prototype. Where we will test out our ideas and the story and how it works in the environment. We will take also as an opportunity to gather inspiration for the art style of the story as we decided to tell the story through a 2D animation.
Our goal during these weeks was to progress as much as we could in terms of the story and the delivery platform.
At this point, the story is much more detailed and we know the exact plot points. They are still open to change according to what we discover in our trip. The overall story is represented in the storyboard below:
Story Delivery Platform Interaction
To deliver Yasmine adventures, we decided to make an innovative platform inspired by the DreamScope project where we used the 360 virtual reality environment. The idea is that the users will have a mobile application equipped with a map showing all the locations where Yasmine adventures take place, once they are in the location they need to look for a marker that will trigger a 3d representation of the real environment, there in the virtual environment users will have to find the exact spot where Yasmine had the adventure. Once this spot is found a 2d video animation will show a story clip. Below you can find a sequence of images that illustrates the interaction with the platform and after the wireframes for the interface
