This is a cool idea - just fyi we are off the boat, in FL, and home the 28th
I've been thinking about our video, and this is the idea that's been bouncing around in my head:
As many of us that want to participate could each take one or two sentences of a 'script' that would be basically our normal tabling spiel. Then we could each tape ourselves delivering that point from our own back yards, from behind a table. (Now that I think about it, kind of like a tiny desk concert!) I would gather all of the individual clips and weave them into one video. Kind of like the Berklee music school that put together the video, "What the World Needs Now." Even John could participate from his boat! Ha! Anybody up for that?
Now I'm thinking about the script. :-)
Sam has agreed to tutor me in the software to put it together.
Anybody else come up with any ideas?
Here are some of my thoughts about an OceanFest video.
My understanding is that the focus is more on kids than adults. That being the case, Caroline and Sue have done a lot of work on putting together kids stuff. Since OceanFest it is about the ocean, we could concentrate on the effect of a warming and a more acidified ocean. Loss of species (affect on salmon for instance), migration of species, increased disease, trouble for calciferous organisms. Etc. You get the idea. If needed, I’d volunteered to do the video editing work. Since I’m gone from there, I can’t offer to do the actual video.
They could add a brief thing on how the CCL is working to create a better world.
I suggested in a previous meeting that we could offer a prize for essays that would perhaps be engaging for kids, get them thinking about the whole issue. Make it "interactive." We could have the prize money up front in our materials on the interface, whatever it is, to possibly attract initial attention. I’m happy to donate $600 for prizes. We can have a first second and third, say what the criteria are, choose some people to be judges and then the prize money would be in the form of a “scholarship” to give to the kids’ classes. To be used however they want to further environmental education.
