Energy Sharer App: Give & Receive Movie Ideas

User Experience (UX) Design Case Study by Joni Gutierrez

Introduction

Many of us who have been on lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic have taken refuge in watching movies at home. This has provided us an unforeseen but welcome opportunity to be exposed to a wider range of movie ideas, filmmakers, styles, and techniques from around the world. In addition to the entertainment and artistic gratification from these creative works, we have been developing a renewed sense of connection with our fellow human beings who we know and feel are in the same boat. Through our shared experience as film spectators, we realize that the enjoyment of films is an essential part of what it is to be human. This resonant condition presents us with the insight that the entire library of cinematic media – now made more easily accessible through online streaming – is an integral part of the heritage of humanity.
