About this project
Create a 2-minute video (with an 80's theme) highlighting the worldwide Angular community to kick-off ng-Conf 2018. Must incorporate conference theme of 80’s, highlight angular events around the globe by zooming into the country/state/city, and images from select events, list of angular events in the last year, news and highlights of angular in the last year.
I sent posted on social media to request images and videos from Angular events from my personal network of angular speakers and from the larger tech community. I also reached to event organizers in various Angular slack communities to contribute to my list of Angular events that occurred in 2017 and 2018.
Next, I searched for articles, blog posts, and conference talks for updates, news, and surveys about Angular in the last year.
I created a storyboard to sketch out how I wanted the video to tell the story of Angular over the last year. This storyboard helped to visualize the video, shot-for-shot.
After deciding how I wanted to layout the video in the storyboard, I went through the images and videos I collected to select the most compelling images and ones that would best tell the story.
I sorted through a list of 80's songs and 80's inspired graphics that I could acquire the rights to and would capture the playful mood of the events.
Creating the video
Using the video tool, Camtasia, I created the 2-minute video, incorporating Google Maps, the music, and the images I collected.
I sent the video to the shareholders for feedback and performed a couple of iterations before settling on the final version.
I created a 2-minute video that shared the highlights of Angular for the previous and current year while incorporating the conference's 80's theme.
This video was played before the opening keynote at ng-conf 2018 in front of 1500+ attendees. The conference organizers were pleased with the end results and asked me back the following year to work on a video project.
