Overview: A kiosk tool to allow the public to visualize dialogue, subjects and plot to watch video within a documentary.
Details: I am creating a documentary about the future of communications. I have a lot of interview footage of professionals involved with the communications industry. The footage is transcribed and separated into distinct ideas. Each idea is tagged with one or more of seven or so subjects.
For example: One of my interviewees speaks about how tools will be created which will help people visualize and more completely transmit an idea to another person. I would tag this idea with: VR, PREDICTION, and LANGUAGE.
These tagged ideas will be lined up to the video footage. I need a program with an incorporated video player that a user can easily scrub through all of this footage based on how each idea is tagged.
A data visualization combines art with data in an effort to make vast amounts of data easy to understand by the human viewer. All of this tagged footage is to be automatically arranged according to their tags into a plotline. Each tag or combination of tags will have their own section of the spectrum. Each location of this spectrum is simply a mixture of different colors for each tag. For example: EVOLUTION (RED) and BRAIN (BLUE) makes purple. CELL PHONES (YELLOW) and PREDICTIONS (GREEN) will make dark olive. Ideas tagged simply with EVOLUTION (RED), will be red.
As the user scrubs through the spectrum horizontally, dialogue will scroll by vertically above. Stopping the scrubber on a location for one second will play the video associated with that section of dialogue and will then play any similarly tagged videos after that.
NOTE: This is a documentary but the program is not scrubbing through one video. These are a series of videos. Based on what each vidoe clipped is tagged, they could play more than once depending on where in the timeline a user selects.
This software will be installed on a kiosk computer with a touch screen that passersby can touch to view different parts of the documentary. The program will also need to be able to be ported to a website later on.
