The Future of Motivation weekly report w. 49

As we foresaw last week we finished our article and we will hand it in tomorrow.
We spent a lot of time revising and rewriting the text to make it more fluid and catchy as possible.
The biggest change we made in our You-Topia concept has being defining the hierarchy of certificates and awards that the user would acquire during her/his progression.

Another important part of this week's work has been creating the images that will complement our article. Among them we created the absolute definitive interface of You-Topia featuring Profile, Missions and Feedback/Performance trying to keep the design as linear and user-friendly as possible.

Yesterday, today and tomorrow we have planned 3 group meetings to plan and schedule the main shooting session that will probably take place on next Monday. We decided that despite the concept of an interactive video was particularly engaging and fun we will probably shoot short frames showing good and bad actions that will be recorded on You-Topia and to which extent these will contribute to one's progression. The whole video will be followed by a voice-over narrator making it look as a tutorial-alike promotional video. Since this is the worst moment of the year for shooting (cold and not much daylight) we will probably extend our shooting session to another day, still not planned.

We have chosen our "hero quote" from the lyrics of this memorable Lou Reed's song:
"[...] You are going to reap just what you sow".

The You-Topia crew wish you a "Perfect Day".
