Re: Luna launch video


We've been working on an outline of what we want for the launch video. I
agree we should get that going soon. I'll work with the Council to get that
finalized and published.

I really like that first video, and think that's kind of the direction
we're going. We've tried the all-white background and it's more difficult
and less personal.

Also, Novacut has mentioned working with us on the video! They said they
can help us get a small instance (10 collaborators) set up, so we'll be
looking at that.
