Hello to all:
I agree with @Dev that the video promotion has a good intention, but it
does not convey the expected message of volunteerism. How can you invite
individuals to get involved if you do not use actual photos of the
community? How do yo expect to get people involved if one of the
organizations RALO's is not mentioned (only ICANN as a multistakeholder
organization)? How many watching the video understand the concept?
I would expect a follow-up video to focus, not on NextGen and Fellowship
Programs, but the sort of "technical or skills" (mentioned on video) one
should have to apply. If I have to navigate to another site for more
details the video is lacking its purpose.
Finally, who is going to watch the video? People already involved in ICANN,
people curious about what ICANN is all about. This brings me back to the
idea of "outreach and engagement". What is the goal? Are we effectively
recruiting the audience we seek?
My 2cents worth.
