Facebook – Say Thanks
Say Thanks was developed to be a gift to the Facebook community to share gratitude with friends, family and loved ones. The experience was developed over months of conception, design and engineering a dynamic video engine that shipped millions of videos (3.3M videos per hour) to folks across the world. The end result was a collective experience of dynamically generated, personalized videos that captured the spirit of gratitude and friendship.
I was brought into the Facebook team to help with the animations and editing for the videos. Not only did each video need different cuts depending on how many photos a user selected, but also in 12 different languages, and then each of those videos would need to be exported in 4 separate layers for the engineers to create a workable dynamic template. The team worked with Buck.tv for the original animations and I helped clean up and edit the working files later on.
