San Francisco, California (PRWEB) December 5, 2008
A new three-minute Vision Statement Movie posted to YouTube at http://tinyurl.com/obama-vision-movie celebrates President-elect Barack Obama's November 4th victory speech. The ROCKETSHIP consultancy has produced the movie using text from the speech, images from the campaign and a rousing anthem by Irish rock band U2 to capture the excitement which swept the nation and the world on the evening of the historic victory.
The movie, described as "inspirational and moving" by Democratic elected official Brady Bevis (ex-supervisor, Marin County, California) communicates Obama's vision for America. It includes photographs from the President-elect's childhood and towering figures from American history including JFK, Martin Luther King and Rosa Parks. Scenes of celebration from the historic November 4th election in Grant Park and around the nation capture a quintessential moment in American history. The movie communicates a positive vision of a specific outcome, the moment when Obama's endeavor to become the 44th President was realized.
"It's very well done and makes compelling viewing," said Joel Postman, Social Media specialist and author of the new book 'SocialCorp' about the use of YouTube within corporations. The video shows how an appealing 'mash-up' of text, image and music can help communicate a key moment in history, Postman said. "Unlike many other YouTube clips, this movie has a purpose. It aligns perfectly with Obama's message of possibility and change" he said. Postman noted that YouTube has the capacity to deliver messages to a global audience, and Vision Statement Movies like this are a useful way for anyone to communicate their message. "Since Obama used new media to such effect in his own campaign, it's fitting that the Rocketship consultancy has celebrated the victory with this technology," Postman concluded.
