This is a great idea. The project can surely use better marketing 
materials, be it video chunks, screenshots, images, nice documents that 
show the new features...

The result is nice, but the music covers the voice at times. Also, I 
would keep links very simple, so not and not the 
full URL to the inner pages. I think it's "Community over code" and not 
"before code". For the rest, it's impressive to see how the single 
chunks can be rearranged to target different use cases. The voiceover is 
good and clear.

This would be perfect. At the moment we don't have many OpenOffice 4 
specific materials, so any well-done videos/graphics are welcome.

This is stuff that we could also use on the main website, 
not only on the download site.
