Maybe we should ask an admin to edit the title of this thread and add a WARNING note.

Good idea, someone could not read the whole thread and throw something in first.

I am still good for the bounty and anyone who doubts it can have a refund of their pledge.  I really do not like my name being smeared when as far as I can tell no one has even made an attempt to claim the bounty.

I have yet to see any movies, but do check in every now and again to see how things are going.

I suppose you can check to see if the same coins were 'spent' by bytemaster, and to whom.

It looks like bytemaster is a scammer. Noagendamarket's transaction was 4f927df1213251... This was spent by bytemaster in transaction ddde42d19081ab...

Block 83788 (October 6, 2010)

Value: 0.02
To:12weUmfDsmhheC1cCM27gkLUMLjMxcqGjg

Value: 2146.22
To:1K4HzMd3hNX1Ame7rfiZG61eigPq4B4e3J

Could he simply be automatically sending bitcoins from one wallet to another?

Such is the problem with not being able to select the 'source' address.   I have purchased many bit coins, but have not spent any.  I have been developing a web application using bitcoins, but life got in the way and so I have not been able to focus on it.

About making a video, I'd like to mention the "synfig" software.   Basically it's kind of a inkscape but with animation feature.
It's free software and it can do some nice things.  I'm not good in this kind of artistic stuf but if someone wants to give it a try, just search synfig.  On debian like systems :  apt-cache search synfig

Holy carp! This is getting serious. 13k? Really? I could make something cool for that kind of money. I've been eyeing this project for a while now. Is anybody 'almost done' with their version? I'd hate to duplicate any major effort.

ps Bytemaster is totally *not* a scammer.

Agreed. People went a bit overboard claiming those things. The movie bounty is now a serious amount so it will create some buzz.

Hi

It would be worth making Paul Grignon aware of this bounty. He made "Money as debt" an animated documentary about the perils of the fractional reserve banking system (http://www.moneyasdebt.net/)

Bitcoin seems like a project he would be interested in.

$2520 should be more than enough to create nice animated movie, like "Money ad Debt", but shorter.

Still no contestants ?

As far as I can tell, this bounty does not all go to one animation. Some of the donations are conditional on features that will be met by different animations. So I'm not surprised that there are no official competition entries yet, but plenty of people have done some work towards it (including me).

Thank you grondilu for pointing me to the synfig software. I had been learning pencil (which I find very comfortable to use), but it does seem that synfig will reduce the time it takes for this kind of project.

I'm struck by the similarities between this project and the "minute memes" project being run by QuestionCopyright.org. They have a budget of $10,000 per minute, and they present some figures to show that professional animation starts at $3000 per minute.

I think You're talking too professional.

Is "Money as Debt" so professional ? I guess not. And i think it is much cheaper than that.

Maybe you should transfer the bounty to someone who is more active than you and is perceived to be trustworthy (like kiba or noagendamarket) because no one is going to donate anymore if you disappear for months at a time.

I'm looking at making a short animated movie, pitched at the same level as the "This is Flattr" video. Notice how the Flattr introduction doesn't use much technical language.

At this forum, most of us have technical knowledge, but the next wave of Bitcoin users will be drawn from people for whom the word "client" means a human being rather a piece of software, and for whom any mention of "hashing a block" will make their eyes glaze over.

So I'm hoping to make a short introductory animation. If it is well-received, other similar animations could address more specialized topics ("How does Bitcoin work?", "How do I back up my Bitcoin wallet?" etc etc).

Here's my first version of a two-minute script. Comments are welcome.

<<

INTRODUCING BITCOIN

Bitcoin is a currency for the internet. With Bitcoin, you can make payments
anywhere in the world conveniently and for little or no cost.

The Bitcoin system is not operated by any government. It is not controlled by
bankers. It is not the product of any corporation. Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer
internet currency. Every transaction within the Bitcoin system is checked and
processed collectively by the computers that form the Bitcoin network.

Everyone can use Bitcoin. There's no charge to join, and no need to register.
Just install the Bitcoin software and start it up. You can earn
Bitcoins by selling products and services to the Bitcoin community, or you can
buy bitcoins from exchanges.

To send bitcoins to someone else, click on "Send coins". Choose the recipient
from your address book, or paste in their Bitcoin receiving address. To receive
bitcoins, tell the sender your Bitcoin receiving address so that they can send
you some coins. You don't need to have your Bitcoin software running when someone
sends you coins.

The total number of bitcoins is fixed, but they are subdividable and can support
any level of trade. Bitcoins are originally earned by those whose computers are
processing Bitcoin transactions, and it's also possible to earn small
transaction fees from certain kinds of Bitcoin transactions. This provides an
ongoing incentive for people to allow their computers to process Bitcoin
transactions.

The Bitcoin system is underpinned by mathematics and secured by public key
cryptography. Because Bitcoin is a peer-to-peer system, only valid transactions
that are acceptable to the network will be processed. Someone attempting to
defraud the system would need to control more computer power than all of the
honest network nodes combined, so there is strength in numbers.

To get started, visit bitcoin.org and download the software or join the
forum. Bitcoin is an exciting and potentially game-changing currency.

(Just so you know what I'm talking about)

I like this. I would suggest a handful of these, with minor variations in each one, sort of like a split marketing approach. I started writing something similarly non-technical, but yours is better. I like the idea for a series of small, specialized topics. My gears are turning now.
