Description of the organization and its target audience

Provides augmented movie watching experiences on mobile smart phones

Industry

Entertainment & The Arts

Description

We would like to create an app (or mobile-friendly website) that allows a movie-watcher to see in real time behind-the-scenes info, movie trivia, and interact directly with the movie and the audience through real-time voting polls and message boards.

This mobile app (or mobile-friendly website) will:
* allow users to select from a list of movies that we support
* move in real-time in alignment with a movie the user is watching
* provide popup-like content related to scenes currently being watched
* for users who choose, it will allow them to "check in" to the movie they are watching and interact with other app users in the theater
* offer to sell movie-related merchandise through our amazon affiliate program
* ultimately provide an interactive, augmented experience to the movie

For a complete proposed mockup of our thoughts, please see the attached powerpoint.

Notes

Smoothness, sleekness, and simple, convenient UI is the most important aspect here. It needs to be easy to use constantly interactive. Target users will be aged 15-30, English-speaking Americans who are particularly technologically savvy. App will be tested within theaters that will be experimenting with "cell phone allowable" viewings. Therefore, users will be watching the movie while having their phone out, so we want to make sure that it works in that environment (eg, not a white background so to emit less light, lots of motion to draw their attention, etc).

The attached powerpoint are our initial thoughts. We are very open to creative ways to engage the user as they are immersed in their movie (eg, have the phone vibrate whenever their is a new popup, tie to their facebook account, etc). Reach out with questions.

      This is another teammate of David's - this looks great. Got a quick question though...the logo, isn't that very close to the Dre's Beats logo? Esp int he black and red pref color scheme?

      @shyma [from Dave's team member] I like the first and second screens but would like to see more of how the rest of the design would be laid out, if, for example, somebody chose to watch a movie trailer or read related news

      #Mattinhk [from Dave's team member] Really like the Buzz banner on each screen - great for branding

      @Mattinhk, no specific logo. Part of what we're looking for is a good logo design. Red and black are our preferred color scheme (to limit the distraction of a phone being used in a theater) but if you can make a different color scheme work well, we're up for thinking differently.
