CI Design Wrapper for Videos

Dear Design Team,

Hi and my name is Shawn Beasley. I am chatting with the document team to find out where it would be valuable to do videos, in YouTube, to accompany the documentation. There are a lot of users that need the information in this format as well. My current videos revolve around OTRS, and I have finally got so far as to know what I want to transport, and how to make the editing process a breeze. What I would like to do with Libreoffice is to help with post-/production of YouTube videos with a recognizable, consistent, and attractive style. I use a Mac in combination with screenflow, keynote, Gimp, and other tools to achieve a rich content screen cast with various affects and music to send emotion to the user.

I run three types of videos currently. They can all be found at my YouTube page: http://youtube.com/user/diginin1974. Some of the older videos are a little rough. And the consistency I was talking about is the last few videos. You will notice the OTRS Inc wrapper and music. But, even in the early vids, you can see the work done with Keynotes and the movement done with screenflow. I think, that with your help, we can make high emotion videos to complement the documentation, and I am very excited to see who would like to be involved here.

Thanks for you time!

Re: CI Design Wrapper for Videos

Hi Shawn

I'm sure that you could make some very good videos that can be used to
demonstrate the features of LibreOffice.

We're developing some design ideas that could be showcased very
effectively on YouTube. I personally think there is an opportunity to
show why LibreOffice, when it has incorporated some of these ideas, is a
better productivity tool than MS Office. It could be done on several
levels right down to specific topics such as automatic tabbing.

It could be possible to even have built into LibreOffice, links to Help
Videos on various topics - just a click away to make it very
convenient.  That would give it a competitive advantage over other products.

This idea has many legs! There could be a role to coordinate a sub-team
of design members working together on this.

Cheers

Phil Jackson

As this topic keeps coming up, could one of you write up a wiki page on
this so that we do not lose the important points? Many people have
expressed their thoughts and suggestions on video productions but not
much has come of it. Perhaps if we put it down on "paper" more people
will find it appealing enough to work on it.

We need to investigate video production from a design point of view as
well as from a marketing point of view. IMO, the design aspect should
come first.

BTW ... we do have a LibreOffice YouTube channel:
http://www.youtube.com/user/libreofficeVols and Drew is involved in
this. ... Please correct me if I am wrong in pointing this out.

Cheers

Marc

Re: CI Design Wrapper for Videos

In reply to this post by Phil Jackson
So Phil,

Thanks for your engagement in this discussion, and for your input! I am excited to hear resonance on this issue. There are several points I have already addressed three areas in my video tutorial series:

1) 7-10 Minute Product demo
2) 3-5 Minute Feature Presentation (Tips & Tricks)
3) 60 Seconds, which allows for a fast overview of interesting things that are not covered in detail, but are easy like little known keyboard shortcuts.

As far as embedded video, I think that it is a great idea. Or, if there is a knowledge base, embedded videos there as well. Anyway, I am in rehabilitation at the moment for my back for the next two weeks, so in the meantime I will be keeping an eye on the list and forming ideas. If anyone has an idea for the first video, then I will work on this as well.

I have a three step process:

Write the text
Shoot the video
Record the voice over

The voice over can then be replaced for internationalization, if necessary or desired. Looking forward to the continuing discussions!

Re: CI Design Wrapper for Videos

Hi Shawn

Why don't you add yourself to the Design Team members page?

Create a Login first and then once you have the above, edit the main
Design/Whiteboards page and add a section on this project. You can also
add a specific page for the video project with an initial draft
structure which the main page refers to.

Use the Edit facility to see how the other pages are linked including
Design\Whiteboards\InterfaceImprovement - this should give you a useful
guide.

Then maybe send an email asking for those design team members that would
like to be involved to let you know.

Record some of your ideas and the suggestion for help videos.

At some stage it will be necessary to communiate with the developers to
see how easily the links to help videos can be incorporated. You could
start off with a higher level outline of help areas and then with input
from others, built a complete tree of topics and gradually populate them
with videos - that will take a combined effort as it will be too big for
one person to do.

Cheers

Phil Jacskon

Re: CI Design Wrapper for Videos

Hi Phil,

You were perfectly correct in your next-step assessment. I have followed your advice

The beginning is now there: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Design/Whiteboards/CIwrapper I have no time right now to continue, but will get back to it later today or tomorrow.

Re: CI Design Wrapper for Videos

Hi Shawn

That's a good start!

I've looked at the links and all looks fine.

Send me an email when you've added some more details.

Cheers

Phil Jackson
