We’ve been discussing with a few CoTech members about updating the CoTech film for 2021, and I thought it would be worth outlining what we’re thinking to test the waters and really ascertain what would be useful for everyone involved in CoTech.
Idea: Create a succinct, eye catching banner video that explains to the world what CoTech is, articulated in the spirit of the CoTech manifesto, co-created by the members of CoTech (and in collaboration with cool AI tools).
Practice: We will write a script and a plan to create a fully digital video. We will then approach different members (those that indicate a willingness to contribute), explain what we’re looking for and then integrate everything into a megazord of a film.
Justification: The current CoTech video needs updating and I think the only way to make a video that really shows to the world what CoTech is, is to make something fully cooperatively. Based on our script, it would be cool to figure out a way to showcase the talent of the members via film - I think this would have to be figured out one coop at a time as everyone is so unique.
Timeline: After testing the waters, we will propose a budget and start working with a pessimistic delivery time of late March (likely to have something to show a fair bit sooner).
Additions: The script will configured in such a way that we can disassemble the megazord into zords to highlight different aspects of working with CoTech, which can then be used to show potential clients why this is such a good thing. All outputs will be framed in such a way that the quality of CoTech is clear to see and that after watching the video it’s the logical next step to ‘engage in business’ with the network.
Proposed outputs: 1x ~2 minute CoTech banner video; several ~30 second ‘zord’ films
Let us know what you all think, am not sure how running a proposal works but we’re keen to get this running.
