Our last day

Already we stumbled upon the last day working together as a group. Tomorrow is the big day that we (Cashmyra) are going to present our concept to Fraser, Bob and our fellow students. And what seemed like a small job, was actually still a whole day of work. Working off the last bits can be quite addictive so we all stayed till the end. Helping each other and finishing our own work.

We had to complete the final report for Fraser. Put everything up on the blog what we hadn’t shared before, and process the final feedback in our animation. There is no more need to show and tell what we did today since we are all posting our stuff individually. Even though we had to work hard and focus on our own stuff, we still had a good time. There were no argument or bad words. It was a pleasure working together in this group. What more can I say? Today was a good day.

Togetherness Day 2

Alright. Yesterday we made quite some progress. Today we did alot more. I already talked about our tasks we did and were going to do. Today Cashmyra finished up our illustrations. Thomas completed our animation. Janaki did her research part. I (Olmo) wrote the presentation script for fraser. This time we will upload our work of the day individually. You can find the script here:

Fraser Presentation

Janaki and I also started with our report for Fraser. We started at 10 and left at 16:00. And working all day doesn’t mean you can’t have any fun!

Togetherness Day 1

Since last week we were too busy with our other courses so we decided we focussed on them for one week. This week we planned two full days to work together in one space for maximum efficiency. We started with creating a to do list.

So after we made clear who had to do what, we made a start. Before we started to work individually we sat together to talk about the animation. We made a few shots for a storyboard. With those visuals we started to write the script. With the rough script we created some more visuals. With those visuals we enhanced the script and so on.

Then we started to work on our own. Cashmyra is busy finishing the illustrations for the animation and Thomas is already starting with our final animation. Janaki started with her research. I (Olmo) worked a little more on the script and the explanation of the concept. Tomorrow we will meet again.

Vacation?

In these two hard earned weeks off, we actually misused our vacation. Since a vacation should be (and traditionally is) used to rest and see your friends and family we actually sat down to work on school. The work we could and had to lay down for merely 14 days, was picked up and continued working on, even though not everybody was fond of this idea.

On thursday, the fifth of january, Thomas and I (Olmo) sat together to develop our prototype. We started with a brainstorm session that concluded that we won’t be working with the acutal app to show what our concept will be, but to show it in an animation. This animation will give you the image of how Frasers presentation should be done in our eyes.

Since we already thought of how we would implement the augmented reality on a banknote, we had to write what the augmented reality (also an animation) would tell. In total there will be four banknotes, each telling a different story, which meant we had to write four stories.

Welcome to banknote bingo!

The gameshow that can literally change the value of your banknotes. This is the first truly gameshow where everyone at home can play along for free and have a chance to win huge cash prizes. All you need is a banknote in your wallet.

In Banknote Bingo, five contestants will battle it out in four rounds with each nine questions. At the end of every round the person with the highest score is selected. The person with the lowest score will be eliminated. This score will determine a four digit number. This is the amount of money they can win! In the finally, five containers will be placed in between the numbers. One of them contains a decimal. The finalist is asked to pick a container and open it. If it has the ‘decimal point’, he wins that amount of money. In this case €366,70. If the container is empty, he is made an offer to stop.

At home, everybody is watching the show with a banknote in their hands. At the end of the show, the host will press a buzzer that puts the four digits in a random order. Every banknote has it’s own unique number.  If any part of that number matches the four digit number that is generated in the show, you win the cash pot. If for example your 20 euro banknote code contains these four numbers, the banknote will increase in value to € 6637,-!

Banknote Bingo can be played with a four, five or six digit code. It depends on the budget and timeslot of the Broadcaster, all other elements stay the same. Production can control payout by the difficulty of the questions and the offers they make.

Will you be able to change the value of your banknote?

After this progress we started with drawing a storyboard that contained just some simple sketches really.

Afterwards I started on making illustrations. Thomas will then use After Effects and Premiere to make the animation.

Week 6

Week 6 was the final week before the vacation. We asked for feedback and evaluated our concept with Bob. We had a working augmented reality app and our concept is going the right way so we agreed on starting with the visuals this vacation. We divided the visaul roles and want to come up with a prototype and an animation of our concept by the next time we meet. We also started with some sketches!

Week 5

So in week 5 we came together to discuss our project and make some steps. Since the week before Fraser told us that we were doing great, we all got the feeling we were some steps ahead. That lead to the fact we didnt had any progress the week (5) after. So we made a to do list:

to-do-list-blad1

We also expanded our concept, which is almost done, and put it on paper:

Banknote Bingo game show – Augmented reality presentation

The presentation of the television show Banknote Bingo will be presented through an augmented reality experience. This unique way of presenting will make the tv producers more excited and enthusiastic about Banknote Bingo. It will also make them remember the format better. Using augmented reality through an application or website gives the producers the option to watch the presentation again afterwards and to show it to other stakeholders.

The augmented reality application can be activated with banknotes. Every banknote says something about the game show. We will use a 5, 10, 20 and 50 euro banknote. This means it will exist out of 4 parts (slides).

5 euro banknote:

The application will start by asking you to scan the 5 euro banknote. This will be the introduction.

“ Welcome to ‘Banknote Bingo’, a real game changer in access primetime and primetime game shows. The first truly interactive mechanism where everyone at home can play along for free and have the chance to win the same cash prize (or even more) as the finalist in the studio. All they need are the bank notes in their wallets and the unique code each one of them has. “

When scanning the banknote there will be some visuals. The

10 euro banknote:

The application will ask to scan the 10 euro banknote. With this banknote the application will explain how the game show works. People at home can win money when they have the right combination of numbers on their banknotes, but how are those numbers chosen?

“Each of four preliminary rounds consists of nine questions, all multiple choice and given to all the contestants in one batch. They give their answers on their individual touch screens and viewers play along too to see how many answers they would get. Their aim is to create a four digit total for one finalist to play for at the end of the show. The highest possible winnings are therefore €9999.

At the end of every round the number of the person with the highest score will be selected. This will be the number that is one of the four digit number that determines the winning code.

20 euro banknote:

The application will ask to scan the 20 euro banknote. This part will give a short explanation on how people at home can play along.

“If any part of the code on their banknote matches the sequential four digit number generated by the finalist in the show, they win the cash pot or share it with other viewers who also have the code. It’s that simple and that addictive.”

50 euro banknote:

The application will ask to scan the 50 euro banknote. This part will explain the different possibility’s this format offers. This format could be a daily gameshow or a big primetime show. The differences will be in the amount of money the contestants will be able to win. The game can be played with 4, 5 or 6 digit codes.

“Banknote Bingo can be played with played with a four digit, five digit or six digit code. It depends on the budget and timeslot of the Broadcaster, all other mechanism elements stay the same. Production can control payout by the difficulty of the questions, offers made during the preliminary rounds and offers made in the final where the contestant only has a 1 in 5, 1 in 6 or 1 in 7 chance of winning the jackpot.”
