Measure Pleasure

Concept Video of a Measurement Device Prototype

The video »Measure Pleasure« is the practical outcome of the Interaction Design class lead by Susanna Hertrich at Chiba U, Japan. The task was to come up with new ways of interaction between humans and machines regarding a possible real world problem respectively a possible real world application. As a final outcome there should be a video prototype, which shows and explains the whole idea within a few minutes.

The initial idea about an intuitive measuring device and it’s details has been discussed in a small group, before I started the finalization and creation process.

The whole video was shot without sound so I could give exact advices to the actor during the takes. This made it necessary to implement all the sound effects in the post-production, but digital sound-effects had to be added anyway, so it wasn't a big deal anyway. I worked with sounds and effects from online sources and edited some of them to fit the purpose. To push the credibility of the artificial „physical“ In-Room-sounds I also added a small but noticeable Left-Right-Stereo effect to them. (This can be experienced best with headphones.)

The video was shot using only available light in a big bright room in the facilities of Chiba University. As equipment I used a DSLR with a standard lens and a tripod. The later editing was done with Adobe Premiere and After Effects.
