We need copy for the video-snippet accompanying the launch of Flicks 2013.

As the promo-video for this snippet doesn't excist yet, we might want to wait? I am ok with it beeing Flicks-2013-generic though.

FYI: There is a copy proposal for the moz.org banner already. It's not approved yet, but just so we don't do the same work twice: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=810830
Blocks: 818921
There won't be time to do a video snippet for the R1 (unless there's webdev magic going on that I'm unaware of). So we need copy for a regular snippet for R1 and we need it now. 

To get this localized we'll need copy in the next few days (sorry). (We can add other locales as they come in).

In terms of the copy direction, I need Tobi and/or Kristin to step in here (asap, please). I think it's a Firefox Flicks is back kind of message, but can you please let us know asap. 

Thanks!

Also, if possible, I'd like to use this copy for the Jan 22 tweet as well.

You're right Chelsea.

Matej, would you please write a little something for this? We want to tell people that Flicks 2013 is happening and lead them to firefoxflicks.org then. 

Note that we can't say "submit now" just yet, but if we want some kind of CTA besides "visit our website", we could e.g. say "create your flick now".
Tobi - can you summarize what is happening with R1 and what you want people do to when they visit the website. Also can you provide the destination URL?

Thanks.

Here are some options for this. Tobi, let me know if there's any different messaging you had in mind.


Firefox Flicks is back! Tell the world about the power of mobile and bring the small screen to the big screen.

Firefox Flicks is back! See last year's winners, read the creative brief and start thinking about your submission.

Firefox Flicks is back! Tell the world about the power of mobile and inspire others to get mobilized.
I like two for this round of snippets. Tobi, Kristin? If we can decide on this quickly I can get the copy to Winston to review and then on to l10n. 

Thanks!

I like 2 as well. My only comment is do we think people will know what Firefox Flicks is? Wondering if it needs to be something like: Firefox Flicks, a global video contest is back! etc.......

We could do this:

Firefox Flicks, our global video contest, is back! See last year's winners, read the creative brief and start thinking about your submission.

That's 140 characters on the nose, though, so it wouldn't work as a tweet along with a link. For Twitter I'd suggest:

Firefox Flicks, our global video contest, is back! Read the creative brief and start thinking about your submission.
I like those. Kristin, are you good with these?
Hey Kristin, can we get a green light on this. I need to file the snippet l10n bug. 

Thanks!

Hope this doesn't confuse things too much, but here are another couple of options based on some evolving messaging:


Enter Firefox Flicks, our global video contest about the power of mobile. Read the creative brief and start thinking about your submission.

You're the director. Mobile is the star. Enter Firefox Flicks, our global video contest about the power of mobile.

Celebrity judges and great prizes. Learn more about Firefox Flicks, our global video contest about the power of mobile.

I like #2 the best. Or are we using all 3?
I'm happy to test all three or use some of them for template tweets, but if you like #2 best, let's start with that one.

I like #2 as well and it's short enough that it works for both snippets and tweets.
Excellent. I'll send that out for l10n then :)

Thanks all.
Hey all, 

So Winston pointed out something that we missed, running:

You're the director. Mobile is the star. Enter Firefox Flicks, our global video contest about the power of mobile.

for R1 is a little confusing since they can't enter yet. 

How do you feel about running the above snippet for R2 and running option 3 for R1?

Celebrity judges and great prizes. Learn more about Firefox Flicks, our global video contest about the power of mobile.

Let me know and I'll get l10n working on the text. 

Thanks and sorry for the confusion.

Good point. I am good with that plan

I don't think it's too big a problem since the overall CTA is to enter, but I'm also OK using the other option.
Okay - let's go with the swticheroo. 

Matej - should it be like this: 

Celebrity judges and great prizes. <a href="http://www.firefoxflicks.org>Learn more about Firefox Flicks,</a> our global video contest about the power of mobile.

or should it be the whole line?
Suggestion above approved as per IM conversation.
