I am getting ready to launch my new mobile application / website combination. The product is called Trail. Trail uses a mobile application to capture your GPS locations, photos, videos, and tweets as you travel. It uploads the data to our website, and you can interact with the data using our unique graphical interface.
The website is [login to view URL] Feel free to click the "See an example" link on the homepage (below the "What is Trail" section) to check out the mapping interface. Or, for a more in-depth look, sign up for an account and (after logging in) play with the Sample Trail in your account. The app interface is not yet finished and will likely change, so you don't need to include any shots of the app working in the video (not that you necessarily need to include shots of the website interface in the video, either).
We are looking to have a video made that captures the essence of Trail and is around 1:00 - 1:30 in length. There does not need to be any voice over on the video, just some background music. As a starting point, we really like the video on http://animoto.com. --> If you scroll down about half way, there is a video called "Canapolis Family Trip to Europe," which is pretty well done and is similar to the concept behind Trail. Of course, we don't require anything quite that intricate.
We would like the video to start and end with a white screen with the Trail logo centered in the middle, lasting about 3 seconds each time. What's in the middle is up to you. However, we recommend emphasizing traveling in a foreign country or walking around a city (since these are the two most likely uses of the app), that user's can add photos/videos/tweets to their Trail, and the scrapbook/timeline/memories concepts behind Trail. Of course, you don't need to emphasize these by stating them with text, feel free to show with animations or graphics or whatever.
You must own any material you use in the video, or it must be free for public use -- do not use the copyrighted material of others for our video.
