Flatpak 1.0 is getting released soon and the intention is to support the marketing efforts with a release video.

Manuscript Draft

Flatpak is a sandboxing technology for the Linux desktop. It unifies application delivery and guarantees that your app runs consistently in deployment. The underlying core uses OSTree and innovative Linux kernel features to isolate and secure your apps. With Flatpak your app runs everywhere.

Hundreds of Flatpak'd apps are already delivered to Linux through the Flathub store.
And since Flatpak is a decentralized technology, you can host your own flatpak store too.

The next generation of app delivery for Linux is already on its way. Learn how to flatpak your app today on flatpak.org.

@jimmac suggested I used a less technical wording in the manuscript, so I rewrote it. I will record both versions with @ssssam .

Manuscript Draft v2

Deploying apps to Linux is difficult because there are so many different Linux distributions.
Life is not easy when crash reports pile up from angry users and you can't reproduce them yourself.
But with Flatpak, you can.
Flatpak uses container technology so that your app runs same way on all Linux platforms.
It makes it simple to deliver your apps, so you can spend your time on more important things.
It puts you in control of upgrades so yours users can always get the newest version.
Check out the hundreds of apps that are already available on Flathub
and Flatpak your app today.

Deploying apps to Linux is difficult

"can be difficult" sounds better.

Crash reports pile up from angry users

"unhappy users" sounds better.

It puts you in control of upgrades

Updates, not upgrades. (Also, small typo: yours users -> your users)

Anyway, great job!

It's hard when you can't reproduce the bugs reported by your users. But with Flatpak, you can!

Excellent, thank you @TheBaronHimself ! I have sent you the voice over and some inspiration. I will begin collecting visual assets needed to assemble the flatpak release video now.

I'm going to postpone my animation efforts two weeks more. I'm moving out of my apartment to a new town so schedule is a bit tight at the moment..

Update: I have fleshed out a storyboard for the video and have most of the visual assets in place. Next step is to start animation which I imagine is a job I'll take on soon.

Someone showed me the video a little while ago - it looks really good!

The video seems to be more of a general introduction to Flatpak, rather than a video about the 1.0 release specifically. As such, we might want to use it for general marketing. What about hosting it on the about page?

We can still link to it from the 1.0 press release.

bastianilso commented Aug 11, 2018

@allanday Excellent idea and I agree. I think it makes it a more re-usable too, this way.

@TheBaronHimself sent me the music today and I am preparing a final render. Note that the 3D scenes have changed based on feedback from @jimmac.

Do we have a youtube channel for Flatpak or is there an intention to make one?

Can I view the video anywhere? I'm trying to figure out how to integrate it into the website.

bastianilso commented Aug 13, 2018

@allanday video is not online yet except on hidden youtube draft links on my channel.

When the video finishes I will attach it to this thread.
I suggest we also get a YouTube channel for Flatpak too. What do you think?

I'm in the middle of preparing website updates to accommodate the video. Knowing what's in the video would be helpful. Is there no way you can share the draft with me?

I suggest we also get a YouTube channel for Flatpak too. What do you think?

It's the obvious solution for hosting the video... I don't know if there are alternatives to consider.

If you do create an account, do use an @gnome.org email alias, so it's not tied to a specific individual!

@allanday apologize, I thought you meant you wanted the final version which is not online yet. anyway, I hope you worked it out, otherwise the manuscript can be read in this issue and a final version will be available tomorrow.

I will create a flatpak channel for video@gnome.org then.

Update: The video is almost ready and I expect to upload it later this afternoon.

Flatpak has a YouTube channel now:
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5qrehIqUYquF-bDOV8JSrA

@allanday You can sign in to the channel with our video@gnome.org (same as we use for GNOMEDesktop channel) account and then go to "Switch Accounts". There is an unlisted draft version uploaded, but I will reupload a final public version.

bastianilso commented Aug 16, 2018

The video has now finished and resides as unlisted inside Flatpak's youtube channel.
Should we release it now as public or change its publicity in coordination with the Flatpak 1.0 release?

aiamuzz commented Aug 16, 2018

@alexlarsson ... and team ...
You need to list the complete functional feature set and if possible the future milestone(or the general direction you intend to take Flatpak to going forward) ... and all this needs to be part of the the video ... only then will this will become the official launch.

@bastianilso ... without the above details ... or releasing it before the release of version 1.0 ... will make this video a Flatpak fan video rather than an official launch video.

We need it publishing now. I've looked on the Flatpak Youtube channel, but I can't see the unlisted video.

bastianilso commented Aug 20, 2018

@allanday it is only visible if you go to "Creator Studio" (for some reason Youtube hides unlisted/private videos in the channels). Anyway, I have taken the liberty to change its visibility to "Public" now. Here is a link:
