Creative Brief Concept Statement:

Learning languages is one of the most difficult tasks to undertake for many individuals, despite the desire many have to do so. Those who wish to speak another language find it hard to implement a device that is entertain ing and recognizable. Though many language books and tutorial movies are able to teach the foundation, it is clear that colloquialisms and culture idiosyncracies are the key to truly mastering a spoken language.

Project Description:

We intend to implement a mobile app that will be a repository of videos with multiple dialogues and cultures. This is not meant to be another viewing device for movies such as Netflix or Hulu, but rather an education tool used for students learning a new language, or individuals wishing to broaden their horizon. People will be able to truly grasp the uniquness of languages through the recognizable media of movies and film.

Target Audience:

20 years of age to 55. Though there is a 35-year gap in the spectrum for age, the educational level and aspi rations of our target audience is much more focused. Our intended audience will have a college-level educa tion or higher, or they will be in the midst of completing their degree. Those who wish to travel will be our high est priority. People who enjoy movies and film over books and tutorials will also be a high priority.

Style and Tone:

To maintain the theme of movies is necessary. Though we are wanting to differentiate our application from products such as Neflix and Hulu, however, we want to keep the interface similar, so our audience can recog nize the aspect of our product.

Obstacles:

Making sure that we have obtain talented interpretors and language specialists. We must also acquire specific movie rights to be able to have a vast library of digital movies at our audiences’ fingertips. We cannot settle for loose translations for our movies, as our mission is to immerse people in the culture.

Target Completion:
