Proposal Update

One's mind has been muddling back and forth conceiving a 100% concrete idea I can put down on paper so after talking with a number of people over the past week here it goes.

The aim is to create a short satirical animation demonstrating current products within a future environment, approximately 1-1:30 minutes long and similar to present-day's QVC shopping channel, Bid-Up TV, etc. The client base will be directed towards a comedic audience within the genre of satire but the main aim is to create and demonstrate various future product designs based on current research.

The products will be fictional but based of current technological advances the world is making today. Current technologies that I've researched include Google's Project Glass, Microsoft's Surface 2.0, Google's Driverless Cars, Nokia's Humanform, IBM's smartphone traffic prediction, Proof-of-Concept android application PlaiceRaider, and leaps motion gesture technology. As well as old iPhone 5 concept videos.

Regarding the style of product or UI designs I am looking at the designs as they are now, as well as implimenting two further people who also worked on Tron Legacy. Jake Sargeant, and Bradley "GMUNK" Munkowitz due to their roles as Graphic Compositors and Animators. As well as also checking out Syd Mead, a visual futurist and concept artist. Perhaps best known for his work in Blade Runner. It's likely I'll dedicate a post towards research of the style of the products may at a later date.
