One of my first major After Effects projects after joining Sprint UXD.
3D graphics were native in AE prior to the integration of Cinema 4D in later versions.
Created the entire concept from script to storyboards and final execution.
This project may be the closest I'll ever get to something like Google's X, or Moonshot, or whatever they called it, where I got to sit in a room with creative studs like Connor Quillen and Justin Eddings and spitball, whiteboard, spit on the whiteboard, and bang our heads together until we came up with a complete concept that was—at the time—completely original.
We conceptualized a voice assistant for Sprint devices that went well beyond the boilerplate functionality of Siri, and reached deep into the phone's brain to chain together commands and make contextual decisions at the user's audible command.
The end result was a rather lengthy motion graphics video that illustrated select use cases to exemplify our idea. The graphics were all mine, and I coerced some of our UXD colleagues to provide their voices for the full effect.
If Sprint would've had any money at the time (or ever), they totally would've gone in for this, and we'd all be saying "Who the hell is Alexa?" today.
