30 second video required!
« on: April 25, 2007, 10:32:31 AM »
Hi all

I've just been approached by my head of department in the Open University - he wants to show some of the very senior managers a 30 second video of Second Life. He asked if we'd got anything he could use, I've passed him Fox's videos and he's going to do an edit.

But the thought did occur to me and Fox - we need a 30 second promotional video of Schome Park. Anybody interested in creating one? The way SchomePark is developing it will probably get shown quite a lot (as well as being put onto YouTube). Can't promise fortune but it's likely you'd get a fair bit of fame!

All you machinima fans out there, one for you?

Hi MarsBar,
Thought you had. That's great. Would you be able to post it to
schome-sl-help@open.ac.uk
ASAP? If you could add a note in the body of the email to say you're happy for it to be shown in public to promote and educate about Schome Park, that would be helpful.
Thanks
Fox

Don't be put off, Achilles.

We need a 30-second one for tomorrow, but it would be good to have a range of lengths and subjects because a lot of people are interested in Second Life.

Because of problems in downloading the software, finding computers with high enough specifications and getting round firewalls we can't ever assume that we'll be able to get SL up on a screen to show people what it is like, so videos are essential.

Also, it protects privacy. People know they're in the video - they don't necessarily know they're on show if someone has lots of people watching their screen.

Another reason is that there is lots happening on Schome Park and it can't all be captured in one video.
