Zoetrope: Content Screening Mobile Application Prototype

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. Zoetrope provides further understanding of the delicate content in every movie through data visualization.

Brand / Concept / Process

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.
