NASA Contest: Create a 2-Minute animation/video from storyboard for REALM project

  • Status: Closed
  • Præmie: $3000
  • Modtagne indlæg: 28
  • Vinder: LouReu

Konkurrencebeskrivelse

The goal of this challenge is to create a 3-minute animation, based on a provided storyboard, that describes NASA’s REALM project to the general public. A background summary is provided below, although a careful reading of the attached detailed description is recommended.

Background

REALM (RFID-Enabled Autonomous Logistics Management) is a 3-phased experimental project based on RFID (radio frequency identification) technologies. The primary objective is to learn how to automate logistics management for future space exploration missions. While early stages of the REALM experiments are focused on solutions to automate activities such as inventories and item searches, future experiments that allow robotic interaction with logistics, such as unpacking or setup in advance of human arrival, are anticipated. It is considered critical for beyond–Low Earth Orbit missions, in which ground support for finding items is impractical and re-launch of missing items is not an option. It also improves packing efficiencies for reduced stowage volume. The REALM team is using the International Space Station as a test bed to evaluate and mature the relevant technologies.

Attachments:
• The storyboard is attached as a PDF.
• A separate PDF contains recommended edits to the storyboard.
• Also attached is a PDF that provides a description of the REALM system in more detail along with images of the system.

The following links to models of the International Space Station provide content that may be used in the animation:

Solution Requirements
• A 2- to 3.5-minute video or animation that describes the REALM experiments for a non-technical audience; i.e., the general public
• The animation should be based on the attached storyboard, although editing to achieve the desired 2-3.5 minute length is expected.
• Rewording of the storyboard is acceptable to improve clarity or to better convey key points.
• Departure of storyboard shots is acceptable to improve clarity or to better convey key points.
• Use of the NASA Logo is not permitted
• Use of the REALM logo is encouraged (artwork provided as attachment)
• Graphics are provided with the intent of providing a complete overview. While the graphics may be used in submissions, inclusion is not required.
• Encoding:
- Container: MP4 with no edit lists.
- Audio Codec: AAC-LC in stereo or stereo + 5.1 with a sample rate of 96khz or 48khz.
- Video Codec: H.264
- Frame Rate: The same rate the video was captured at.
- Bitrate: no fixed bitrates required.
- Resolution and aspect ratio: 16:9 aspect ratio at your preferred HD resolution.
- A closed caption file (.scc file) would be needed for the final delivery

Evaluation Criteria
• The video is intended to convey the concept of the REALM project and why it is important to NASA.
• Quality: Does the submission look professional? Is the audio clear?
• Requirements: Does the submission meet the stated requirements?
• Clarity: Does the submission describe the 3 phases of REALM in terms understandable by the general public?
• Stirs public interest
• 2 - 3.5 min video including credits

Please note that NASA employees/contractors are not eligible for competing in this contest.

    #extended ... is it possible to run the competition a bit longer? Had some weird problems with the textures of the models in the beginning and needed almost two weeks to fix them... I worked pretty hard on it and all I have by now does not look that bad, I think..., but I just finished the half of the work, so I really need more time...
    and well, it might be not that fair for those, who already made a decent job, but I guess there are others here too, who also need more time to finish their work and would really appreciate it, as me too, if you could run this competition a bit longer!

    still not allowing part entries? You are asking a lot of time to be invested to create a full 2min video for a contest and the kind of standard you want. Why not get people to do a test segment then award the prize and let the winner finish it. this is more standard practice, this would mean you would get more professional animators working on it.

      I had Freelancer review the file types required for the contest. They informed us they are based on the contest skills. Thus, we will need to forward your concern to our Contest team for them to check if they can change the upload properties to allow .jpg files. Thank you.

      Freelancer looked at the upload properties for us. They are indeed based on the contest. We were advised that to accept the current uploads without changing the file type as it would cause issues. Also, the upload will work for users to submit needed information required to fulfil the deliverable.

    I wonder if the system could be able track and remembers last position...so even if it can be reach it in real time always, you could have and idea where it was.

      Yes it can. Archived data can be analyzed for patterns in order to derive location estimates. Current archives date back to system activation in February 2017.

    NOTE: The contest description has been updated from 2 - 2.5 min video to 2 - 3.5 min video including credits. This was done to allow a longer video/animation and to clarify that video credits are part of the overall length.

    If you send samples, we have to score that relative to a finished product. So initial samples are likely to be scored very low, regardless of the quality of the sample. Please do not interpret low scores on samples as a statement of the quality. Thanks

    It is permissible to display credits at the end of the animation. The credit time will count toward the overall length of the animation.

      Thank you Lauren. It has been brought to our attention that the storyboard was created using external resources (Blend Swap). This would definitely be helpful for us creating the 3D animation.

      However, while the spaceship model (for example) is free to download and use, I can see it's licensed under 'CC-BY', which requires giving appropriate credit to the author in reasonable manner.

      Do I assume that -if the use of such resources is permitted- the final output can include the author name? (Given that this is considered appropriate crediting). Please advise @NASA_Tournament_Lab
