The Voice of Jolla Community is here - we want to hear from you!


In Finnish Jolla means a small boat, but what does it mean to you?
For us Jolla is much more than a great new smartphone, it is a movement that can change the world.
Check out the video where Marc Dillon explains what Jolla means to him, and shoot your own video and share it with us and the Jolla community.
We will include shots from the best ones in an official 'Voice of Jolla Community' compilation.

We want to hear from you, we appreciate all kinds of views!

To submit your 'Voice of Jolla Community' video, please follow these instructions:
1. First, think about what Jolla means to you!
2. Shoot a short video of your own, see requirements below
3. Upload your creative input to Youtube as an unlisted video
3. Send your Youtube video link and a link to the original file to us, with a short bio telling who you are at:
You can use popular cloud services, such as Dropbox, Weshare etc.
4. We will share all videos in the official Jolla Youtube channel in an own playlist, and include highlights to our official 'Voice of Jolla Community' compilation

Requirements for the video:
- Video length should be short: one minute or less
- Keep it in English, and speak clearly
- Pay close attention to the sound quality, especially outdoors - you might e.g. want to use a separate boom mic - We recommend to use full HD, mp4 format, 16:9 aspect ratio. Not mandatory, but would be nice :)
- You can chose to be unlike, but no profanity / obscene content please
- Make sure all material you use is your own and not licensed (images, soundtracks etc...)

Is it legal to us mpeg4 for this? Jolla, and probably most if not all consumer devices, are only allowed to use mpeg4 for non-profit personal use. I know, it's idiotic, but it says so right in the license term: settings -> system -> about product.

@Fuzzillogic: I'd consider it non-commercial use if I myself don't use the video (more precise: the codec) for my business. From my point of view, it's a private video I create as private person who loves Jolla. - Jolla, OTOH, is going to use and distribute this video for commercial purposes. It's up to them to have this covered by the appropriate licence.
