Secure Messaging Video: Script & Boards
One of the best parts about making a video is letting your creativity roam free. We worked with our amazing partners at Belljar to come up with the perfect script and accompanying graphics for our video.

If you have read our previous posts, you already know about secure messaging and why it’s important, so let me tell you about our story. Our video starts with a closeup of Dr. Mustachio. He’s working with a patient, performing an exam, and sending a message to a colleague using pMD Messaging. Shortly after, we cut to Dr. Fast Thumbs. Dr. Fast Thumbs is a physician, just like Dr. Mustachio, except he doesn’t use pMD Messaging. Instead, he uses unencrypted text messaging, and doesn’t realize the consequences associated with it.

Dr. Fast Thumb’s message gets intercepted, leaving his patient’s information in the wrong hands. HIPAA does not approve of his carelessness and he is forced to pay hefty fines and even serve up to 10 years in prison.

I want to highlight a few moments in creating our boards and script in order to give you a glimpse into our creative process. When we started thinking about how our video would work, our friends at Belljar mocked-up a few slides in order to get the look and feel just right. The slides are hand drawn in order to quickly and efficiently get an idea of how we were going to visually tell our story. I have included a few slides and pieces of the script below:


“Dr. Mustachio uses pMD Messaging to send and receive sensitive patient information in real time.”


“This is Dr. Fast Thumbs’ patient. She has a highly personal health matter she would prefer to keep private.”


“Unencrypted texts can have major consequences, Dr. Fast Thumbs.”

I hope you enjoyed this glimpse into our secure messaging video. In next week’s post, we’ll let you have a listen to our script, read by myself and Adam Kenney.
