I wanted to share with you a project that I just finished up for the Chicago 2016 Olympic bid. Digital Kitchen and IDEO wanted to build a presentation for the bid that would showcase the future of how technology can help connect people to the Olympics. The animation was made using After Effects and the style was inspired by Photosynth. We wanted to use this style to present the information in the presentation by taking photos of the brainstorming room and building a “fake” Photosynth environment in AE. I then Animated the camera to fly around to each slide in the presentation.
When preformed live, the presentation was make into an Interactive Quicktime using Apple Keynote so that the transitions would happen on the speaker’s command. It was a really fun and simple project to be a part of.
Working with IDEO was fantastic as well. They were very collaborative, helpful, and extremely smart though the whole process. I love these types of projects. Short, sweet and effective… I hope. Good luck on the bid, Chicago!
