A great discussion just cropped up in the RvB Ganked channel and it lead to this post.  To cut a long story short, RvB Ganked (otherwise known as a vehicle for my ego) is lacking two things.

Firstly a video that does a great job of introducing Ganked to newbies/those unfamiliar with Ganked and public fleets in general. 

This would be a great thing to have at hand to show off to folks with.

Secondly, we are also lacking a 15 second Alliance Tournament advert video. We should totally rectify this. Rules are found here:

General Rules
All video material must be Eve related!

The item/service being advertised must be Eve related.

The advert must be suitable for all ages.

Content must be respectable (no attack ads) and suitable for broadcast.

Adverts must be in English.

The quality of the advert must reflect positively on EVE itself, we will work with you on improving the quality of the video until we can accept it. The earlier you get in touch and send us material the more we will be able to advise you, the closer to the event we are the less time we will have to help you.

The deadline for each weekend of the tournament is midnight on the Wednesday of that week. That’s August 13th, 20th 27th and September 3rd. If accepted your advert will be shown on all the subsequent weekends of the tournament. Please keep in mind if you want to be sure your advert will be included please submit it at least a couple days earlier.
Technical Rules
1920×1080 resolution with a 1:1 pixel aspect ratio, failing this you can submit as 1280×720, adverts will not be accepted in any other resolutions. Video should not contain black bars either horizontal or vertical.

Either 30 or 29,970 frames per second, adverts will not be accepted at any other frame rate.

15 Seconds long [img]exactly[/img], adverts will not be accepted if longer or shorter.

We suggest the video is delivered as a Mov or mp4 file with H.264 as a compressor at 15 to 20Mbps, WMV is also acceptable, MKV are not.

Video quality is more important than small file size!

Anyway lets brainstorm a few ideas in the comments as the weekend moves on, and we can start blagging people into doing us huge favours and making videos!!!
