Project Main Details

Manifesto on the Internet of Things 
The purpose of this short video piece is to inform on the coming revolution of the Internet of Things. The voice, music, and visuals will work together to emphasize the excitement and momentum of this new technology. For the VO read, we are looking for a high energy, quick (almost frenetic) read. We want parts of the script to move quite quickly, with the pace changing at some moments for emphasis. This link ( is an example of the type of tone and pace, though in general we were looking for an overall quicker pace throughout this project. Voice talent will be chosen by March 15. And final VO files will be expected to be delivered by March 18.

Script Details

Do you want to know the future? Do you want a crystal ball? Here it is in one simple question:

What. Does a revolution. Look like?

First, something new is introduced: without an existing context, that new thing is seen by most as a simple novelty: This is always true. It was true of radio, true of television, true of computers, true of the internet.

Second, that novelty slowly, way to inevitability: with each brick of groundwork that falls into place - the collective imagination begins to intimate what is possible – paradigms begin to shift, just so, just slightly...articles are written – urging embrace, discrediting as hype...most will ignore these – it has not affected them yet - most will simply think the world is the same as it has always been.

This is a connected light bulb. This is a wifi-enabled washer/dryer.

Novelty, right?

Now imagine this: A commuter train is going to be five minutes late – an onboard sensor sends a message that, in turn, makes its way to the alarm clocks and cell phones of those who frequent the commute telling them to take their time. As they, and the train, arrive, cameras tell the station lights to turn on. Passengers load, and ticket data tells the empty cars to turn off their air conditioning. On the other end, coffee makers, notified of impending arrival, begin to percolate, offices begin to warm, ride services gather to the station. And in the houses left behind, where sleeping children's socks notify their remaining parents they are waking...a text from the fridge tells the delivery service that they don't need more milk today, in response, producers are automatically updated as the aggregated demands adjust in real-time. Meanwhile, in the next house, a message from the city utility informs a smart washer that the use levels on the power grid are ideal and a wash load is begun. In the next business, the next factory, similar but unique, processes occur. Efficiencies in every sector increases by 10-20-50%, Consumption of electricity, water, natural gas, across the entire city, the entire country, drop by half.
