Short  Video


The NARALO Video Project is collaborative effort of the team to provide input in the look and feel of a short informative video for wide distribution, highlighting the merits of volunteering for NARALO

The video is short,  approximately 3 minutes long 

Mandate of the Group

  • Engaging the public about the benefits of NARALO and ICANN
  • Solicting support from community
  • Recruitment of new members

Directoral Approach

In discussion with the team we have reviewed various short informative videos which used various eye catching techniques. A prime example is

This is the Alfresco Groupware promotional video to convince customers on the merits of purchasing Alfresco over other groupware products

Key elements of the video include:

-Key speakers are off-set from the centre of the page with a neutral background

-Speakers rotate from left to right shots as speakers provide their speil

-Key words and personnel titles are shown in the screen on the space in large lettering, reinforcing the key ideas

-Fade into fuzzy and enlarge key words to reinforce key terms

Links to new videos shot in Costa Rica

Hi All


Here is the posted videos from Costa Rica .  They will be a great resource for the online ICANN Academy allowing the learners access to short and first person unscripted opinions on various topics. 


In some cases I had to film where I could get a spot and work with people's  schedules so the sound could be better. 


I would like to thank all those who participated. If you have any suggestions for topics for me to film in Prague let me know.


In the interim here is the links, these films will be provided to Matt @ ICANN and to our ICANN Moodle site
