    Feel free to hold off until we have a good Scope of Work document.

    As I’m looking over the outline, I’m thinking it could be broken down into 2 different videos. All the information is perfect, I’d just recommend stirring up interest (under 90 seconds) for the first video and then getting into more detail on the second.

    Thoughts?

    If so, what parts would we want for part 1?

    This forum mentioned! Pointless writing all this stuff if no-one is reading it.
    Will send a small 0.35BTC donation now.

    I’ve been making an aggressive attempt at bring more FTC community members over to the official board. I trust we’ll start seeing more involvement over the next few weeks. Thank you for the donation, received.

    I plan on playing around with the script in the next 48 hours and posting ideas as they come in. By all means, please add/remote whatever you guys feel is relevant.

    ^^ Maybe also mention where we are up to already (IN SUCH A SHORT TIME) IE: How many exchanges there are so far, and also mention the community support and general acceptance, also what e-commerce is already available (Blackjack & lotto, any others?) Anymore planned for the immediate future? Etc, etc…

    I’d let this thread roll for a couple more days and see what further input comes along from the community, if none, then get it made ASAP!!! 😎

    Noted. I’m having someone else hand me their script ideas later today.

    1. I’ll share them here after work
    2. I’ll add in your suggestions
    3. I’ll wait a few days for all the feedback to come in

    As Feathercoin gets more and more popular, I expect to see more feedback in the forums on these projects. Time for all of us to lead by example. 🙂

    I should have all this posted by midnight (eastern).

    [b]Draft 1: Goal 1min - 1min15sec[/b]

    Feathercoin is a digital global currency that allows you to have complete control over how you spend your money. No banks, no absorbent fees. The coins are stored on YOUR computer in a digital wallet.

    Unlike traditional methods such as:

    • Credit Cards

    • Western Union

    • Wire transfers

    The fees are only a fraction of the cost and can be completed with a few clicks of the mouse. It’s relatively anonymous, fast, costs almost nothing to transfer to people or merchants

    What can you do with Feathercoin? You can:

    •      Send money to your friend in Tokoyo at 3am  
      
    •      Send a donation to your favorite website  
      
    •      Save it as an investment like gold or silver  
      
    •      Even purchase a lottery ticket  
      
    •      More ways to use your coins are added everyday  
      

    Fast… Safe… Affordable

    Feathercoin’s growth is nothing short of amazing. Full community support, traded on multiple exchanges and already gaining acceptance within the online business community.

    Feathercoin….

    Digital currency without the weight

    ============

    Feedback please! I’d like to keep it under a minute and make it just interesting enough for Joe Sixpack to visit the website.

    Ok guys, please let me know what you like and dislike. I need feedback by 12:01a tomorrow. I plan to submit this document to a fearless leader sometime early in the morning … providing no major changes, onto the animators, voice-over and musicians later that afternoon.


  • | Tip justabitoftime

    Just spoke to the voice-over guy and also a marketing consultant:

    1. 200+ words will push past 3 minutes
    2. Too much to absorb, you want just enough to get them to click the link

    Revision 2:

    Feathercoin is the next generation digital global currency designed for the Internet.

    Unlike traditional payment methods, Feathercoin transactions cost next to nothing.

    What can you do with Feathercoin? You can:

    •      Send a donation to your favorite website  
      
    •      Save it as an investment like gold or silver  
      
    •      Even purchase a lottery ticket  
      

    With explosive community support, Feathercoin applications are endless.

    The idea is to produce quick hitting ‘Look me up’ type videos. I can see us doing multiple 45 sec type spots. The next video would dig deeper into the internals.

    “You can even Purchase goods with it”…

    Ok it’s only spot remover 😉

    …For now! 😎

  • Regular Member | Tip sheepson

    Sounds really nice. I would click the link to go to the website!


  • | Tip ShadowEW

    Well, whilst it sounds ok and the dialogue seems pretty spot on.
    My personal opinion and views on it would be I’d NOT go to feathercoin.com, because I’d not actually get that far down the video/audio. Such readings like that are just, dull and boring to my ears and my interest in such drops to nil.

    That’s just my opinion, most likely not shared by most. ^^;
