Zoetrope provides further understanding of the delicate content in every movie through data visualization.
What movie should I watch with my family tonight? is a question parents ask themselves almost every weekend.
Parents are worried because they are unprepared. With Zoetrope, parents know exactly what their kids are watching and are prepared to save their family’s movie experience.
A Zoetrope produces the illusion of motion by displaying a sequence of drawings or photographs showing progressive phases of that motion. Because the interface is a circular data, I decided to call the app after this pre-film animation device.
I thought I wanted to work with this shape to create a 3d interface that allowed the user to move inside the zoetrope to examine the different scenes of the movies. Sketches of all ideas are produced below.
The questionnaire is one of the core parts of the Zoetrope experience because it allows the user to quickly pick a movie based on the things they like. Size different movie genres are provided followed by a filter list. This list can have filters added to it and once they are, they are never removed until the user decides to edit the list.
This feature allows the user to follow the movie with the app. The user can dislike a scene in the list view and can dislike an entire sensibility in the navigation slide down. The timer begins when the user starts the movie. When the scene that the user disliked is a minute away, the phone releases a notification warning the user.
