Cody, 

I think it is a great idea. 
I would be happy to fill a slot in your film !
Would it be helpful to see a script in advance ?

Team,

This morning, during my jog, I was thinking about what we could do to help build interest and attention around Linked Data and, in particular, the Linked Data Platform. Though I may be the least technically astute of our bunch, I'd like to think that I'm OK at marketing. I also think that we have a responsibility to help the world understand the efficacy and transformational power of Linked Data and the emerging Semantic Web - a topic that, IMHO, has been very poorly communicated in the past. We need to help the world understand what we're doing, why it's important, and how it's transforming the future of the modern enterprise and the World Wide Web.

So, I was wondering what you guys thought about taking some minutes during, say, a lunch break, at the next face-to-face to record some talking-head vignettes. The idea being that we eventually snip together a somewhat documentary style video. Remember, YouTube is the worlds second largest search engine. I can imagine a video that contains some animated sequences that help illustrate the concepts behind Linked Data, intercut with brief snippets of talking-head vignettes (name, profession, company bottom right of screen).

You have a company and so you introduce your company's role. How your company is using Linked Data to make a difference in the world. Or... you explain a small piece of the big picture in your own words, which can be used in the overview of Linked Data.

I could ask each of you who may be interested what you might wish to touch on and prepare interview questions around that topic and you just talk freely for a few minutes. I can bring an HD camera and lavalier microphone.

Later, I can then license some nice background music and have some animated illustrations done in Adobe After FX. Eventually editing a nice 10 minute video overview that hopefully we could make better than any out there today.

Of course, everyone participating would have a chance to review a rough cut and thumbs down any part they did not like.

We might get some great material. We might get crap and just end up saying, "Nah, this doesn't work." But it's worth a shot, no?

I know our chief purpose is to complete our charter, but I think we could fit this in the in-betweens somewhat non-intrusively.

Yay? Nay? Sure, Why Not?

Let me know your thoughts.
