What do you folks think about creating a short promotional video for the site? It could be posted to YouTube, and then easily shared on social media such as Facebook and Twitter. It seems that videos are more and more becoming the media of choice, where static images just don't get enough attention.
I'm thinking a short video, perhaps 30 seconds to a minute. Obviously we would want it to look and sound professional, and it would take a lot of work. I have some amateur video-editing skills so would be willing to take a lead on this, but am also happy to yield to anyone with more experience in this type of thing.
We would have to check with the StackExchange higher ups if this would be ok to do, as I'm sure there are policies regarding trademarks etc. for outside advertising. I don't know if since we are still in beta there would be any objections. If there is enough support here I can make a post over on the main Meta.
No real concrete ideas yet. Please post any video ideas or concerns/objections/support below.
