Context & Challenges

The following elements are the creative part of the video introducing the Audi Digital Assistant Researches conducted by UX and Market Research Departments of MADJOR Labbrand Shanghai. The main objective of those researches was to identify the current and future trends of use of digital assistants in China. As internal document and support of communication for Audi’s headquarters in Germany, the format of the video must be short like a reader digest. As main challenge, in order to cope with deadlines, the video production should start before the end of the researches. The final video is confidential and will be not shown on this portfolio.

Narrative structure

The initial structure was designed in three parts. The first part introducing the methodology and the timeline of the researches; the second part developing different hypothesis of usages, design and personalities of digital assistants in the near future; the third part presenting interviews of local and international experts in order to validate (or not) the previous hypothesis. Easy to watch and to memorize, the structure of the video – simplified but covering the big picture, highlights the key parts of the researches, main hypothesis and learning points.

The “Brut” video-like style

The “Brut” format style has been selected – a format initially developed by native digital media focused on informative stories. The main principle is to display the informative content by text on-screen, helping the audience to understand and memorize better the information (E.G: Brut.). The format is known to be efficient as visual outreaching of specialized information or complex topics.
