I am going to try to make a trailer for the RSS forum.
But i want to ask all of you for some help.

Which content do you think should definitely be in the video? Post it as a response to this thread.
This can be images, or video footage, or quotes, or statistics, or ....

EDIT:
The first version of the video is finished and can be watched now online, and i hope you guys will like it
This is the first video i have ever made so feedback is very welcome ;)

Just to throw out some idea without much form as yet:

- Could do a rip on a classic Hollywood movie trailer. The epic ones with the voice over. Have it continue for a short time and then it cuts off with a record scratch and have it point people to the forum for chatting, posting, arguing, and relaxing

- Could be a shout out to atheists - join up and meet more of your own.

- Could be a shout out to theists. Atheists in a bundle in one place, come tell us we are hell bound.

- Could be a shout out to skepticism. Make a long list of things we argue is nonsense (conspiracy theories and such) then say at the end "Disagree? Tell us why. Come to the Rational Skeptics Society. Open debate in a friendly atmosphere.

More ideas to follow. Just throwing out some to get the ball rolling.

Find interesting quotes within the forum and read them over a slide show (or just use fonts... or both). Add fitting music to the background.

Very very impressive Seppe :D Is the footage from the God Delusion an infringement of copyright though? Awesome none-the-less :D

Not bad at all. It almost looks like a movie trailer (it sounds like one anyway). Actually seeing you navigate the website is... interesting. This is so promo it makes me... Good job!

I like how you timed your cuts and fonts with the music. It is very dramatic.

hahahahahahahaha

Dude, that was good. God job, Seppe. I laughed because of how dramatic it was, but it was made really well and I enjoyed watching it.

It's a keeper!

Amazing video. This is definitely a good idea for the RSS as a whole. Working from that idea we should definitely make something like that.

The music was well placed as well, a nice choice selection.

And the idea of a movie type introduction with the typical movie guy voice would be so damn cool.
