Making the First Demo Video
Monday, November 19, 2007
I've been hard at work producing the first Timeline 2.0 demo video for the new website. It will show the process of creating a timeline of your recently played iTunes tracks in under a minute. At first some of the videos on the website may be ordinary screencasts, but I have a vision for making little "short films" for each demo that are more fun to watch.
Last Friday, my friend Tony J and I spent the morning running around Pioneer Square in Seattle getting video footage for the intro to the first demo. I have been building my chops on the Final Cut Pro suite and, of course, bug fixing for the big release as well.
Here are some "production stills" from our first day of shooting:

Along with getting Timeline 2.0 ready for launch, I have been preparing a new website for the release. The new website will feature a selection of timeline charts along with videos that show each timeline being built from scratch in a few minutes.
Here is a shot of my sketch book with some storyboard ideas for a "jazz piano" and "baby's first year" timeline videos:
