- We need someone to develop a good quality video for our about page it'll be a brief overview of inkscape and will hopefully be less than 2-3 minutes.
- It would be great to include a couple brief interviews of prominent companies that us inkscape for their everyday work. If you're able to submit interviews in video format to add to the video it would be great too! It will essentially be a promo video
- Here's an example of where the video would go (http://dl.dropbox.com/u/41698/mockup-about_1.1.png)
I was thinking more like 1 minute - you know like a captivating overview that supported the text in a visual way and made people want to use the software - which briefly showed what inkscape is, what it looks like and how it's used. A short voice-over + sub-title summing up what Inkscape is, cc background music, 3-5 second shots of inkscape on different OSs, close-ups of a few important features in use, a time-lapse of someone making art...
I was thinking more detailed videos (like interviews etc.) could go in other more appropriate sections of the site - with a transcription/text article equivalent on each page.
Maybe dumb but...don't want to freak people out when they just want to know what it is (it's an overview page after all - what I imagined people would get if they click the Learn More button as on the home page design).
Feel free to shoot me down...
