The Future of Industrial IoT

At Splunk, the Product Marketing team brought me on to produce a video for a loose script they’d written up. I worked with them to whittle the script down to something more video-friendly, then wrote up a storyboard. The project was originally conceptualized as an animated explainer video, but since the subject matter was based around industrial sensors and factories, I adjusted the storyboard to include more human elements. In lieu of animation, we shot on location in different environments to show the origins of the data that the sensors are reading and to highlight the people working with the various devices. For a slightly warmer and more personal tone, I adapted the script to accommodate an on-screen narrator who could walk the viewer through the different locations.
