Project Description:

The Oregon Film Museum (OFM) celebrates the history and importance of cinema and motion pictures filmed and created in Oregon. From classics such as, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, to Animal House, to Kindergarten Cop, to The Goonies, OFM’s mission is to educate and celebrate the art and legacy of film and filmmaking in the state of Oregon. To raise awareness, support and acquire donations for a new theater and museum space in Astoria, Oregon, I was tasked with creating a mobile app concept that would capture and showcase the importance of OFM’s mission, and well as create an engaging, interactive experience for movie fans and visitors of Astoria, Oregon.

The introduction screen displays the OFM logo when a user opens the application. The screen then transitions to a carousel that features movie content, announcements and upcoming OFM events. Users can swipe right or left to explore content. When a user taps on a carousel hero image, they are able to take a deeper dive into featured content. In this case, when the user taps on a featured movie, they can explore the history, statistics, cast information, a movie summary. The main menu gives the user various options to learn more about Oregon filmmaking, visiting and exploring film locations, shopping and how they can support OFM’s mission.

The application provides the user the ability to discover and research all feature films that have been created in Oregon. The application encourages users to explore film locations by going to the exact spot where there favorite scenes were filmed. The mapping feature allows users to easily pin-point destinations they wish to see in person.

This robust application provides users with video content and behind the scenes access to the makings of their favorite movies. A testimonial feature allows users to submit their own stories and thoughts about how movies have impacted their lives. A trivia feature tests user knowledge of iconic cinema and allow them to compete for the highest trivia score against other film fans. The Augment reality feature acts as a scavenger hunt that allows users to take selfies with the stars of their favorite films using GPS to take photos in front of  import landmarks or site locations throughout the state of Oregon.
