Contents 1 Technical Issues 1.1 Lack of Documentation 1.1.1 Solutions 18.104.22.168 Create Documentation 1.2 Issues with splitting tasks 1.3 Solutions= 2 Distribution Issues 2.1 Lack of Unified Distribution 2.1.1 Solutions 22.214.171.124 Create a KDE channel (YouTube) 3 Ideas for General Improvements 3.1 "Work Pool" 3.2 Media Library Technical Issues Lack of Documentation The lack of accessible documentation is likely going to hinder the production of videos unless corrected. Having a standardized workflow would make production both easier and more consistent within KDE materials. Solutions Create Documentation Recording Editing Standards and Best Practices Project Design Principles for video (for consistent results) Transcoding Uploading Links to usable content (backgrounds, music, etc) Links to additional resources (copywriters, voice work, graphics) Issues with splitting tasks If we want to split tasks out into chunks (recording, editing, recording voice work, etc), then we will need a way to reliably and uniformly share the necessary resources (raw video footage, copy, sound clips, etc) with other members of the team. Solutions= Distribution Issues Lack of Unified Distribution From appearances, there isn't much of an "official" KDE video source. Given how effective video can be as a promotional tool, consolidation may prove valuable. Solutions Create a KDE channel (YouTube) Approval from project leadership Creating project YouTube page (Ongoing maintenance) ONGOING: Encouraging new content creators to use YouTube channel ONGOING: Share related videos on the project channel Ideas for General Improvements "Work Pool" Having a list of who in the project/on the promo team is capable/willing to handle certain related tasks (voice work, graphics, recording, editing, copywriting) might make it easier to make higher quality videos on a consistent, timely basis. No commitments, of course, just a simple "these are my skills, contact me to work something out". Media Library Having a library of sounds, music, graphics, and clips may make it easier to create professional-looking videos in a timely manner. May run into licensing issues.
