Improvised Videos

Improvised Videos are short films recorded with smartphones to support a codesign process. They represent everyday scenarios where the design object plays a protagonist role. The interaction with the design object is depicted through variegated film and theater techniques such as enactment, role playing, props, puppets, cuts, and transitions.

The main advantage of using video is the small amount of time required to materialize interactions that unfold through time and space. The possibility of improvising and recording over again also makes it suitable to codesign with many stakeholders.

I made a tutorial with various examples of Improvised Videos (in Portuguese).
