We have made it to the final project! 

Whereas the last proposal was meant to keep you focused on sonic properties and assemblage of audio, this project will then harness those sounds clips into meaningful, screen-based interactions.

After reading through the project_03 description in its entirety, write up a full paragraph on what you hope to achieve with this project by 11:59, 4/8/18.

This description will serve as the backbone to your storyboards that we are to discuss in class this Wednesday. You do not need to go into depth on how the sounds will be integrated, but instead focus on the different structural elements that your Processing Sketch will contain (the audio pairing to the visuals will come later in several stages of trial and error).

Also, DO NOT WORRY ABOUT CODING. At this stage it is best to fathom your ideal project- it is my job to then help you pull back, find solutions and help you execute your vision. 

Your proposal should answer ALL of these points:

(roughly a sentence each)

  • What is the theme? Why are you inspired to explore this selected theme?

  • What will the structure be? Will it be abstract, page-based, and linear or non-linear, etc.

  • What are the ways we will interact? Key presses and mouse clicks are the most common, but you can explore depth data from an XBOX Kinect, motion tracking data from the webcam, etc. 

  • What type of experience do you hope to inspire through this hybrid work? If you think of this project as yourself being a good party host, what do you hope to deliver to your guests/users? Will it be uplifting, thought provoking or explorative? One good reference is to think of how long people will spend interacting with your project; if it is short and repetitive, it may not end up being as exciting as something that is abstract or non-linear. 

Note: if you do not know what to commit to, you must come up with three rough ideas (and then do three short storyboard sketches for Wednesday) that we can then mull over and figure out which might be the best fit.

We will be reviewing these with each other in small groups, so please print a few copies on a page (to cut up and hand out) and bring them to class on Wednesday with your storyboards. If I have not met with you to discuss your audio project, or you are still unsure what to do, ensure you speak with me after class on monday 4/9 so that we can go into the storyboard conversations on wednesday with that elements solidified.

Here is a decent video on how to storyboard. REMEMBER! be drawing in a fine-point permanent marker large enough for people to read your notes from a distance. The quantity and quality is not important, but should be enough to pair with your proposal to effectively demonstrate your idea in full detail to others.
