Hi there everyone!
I hope no-one minds us posting this "call for help" here but we thought
this might be the best place to get a positive response.
We are looking for sound and video clips for several projects we are
working on and need your help.
We need as many clips of people saying one of the following phrases (if
you wish to help, simply select the best match for you):
"Hi, I'm (insert your name) and I listen to Creative Commons!"
"Hi, I'm (insert your name) from (insert name of band/website) and we
use Creative Commons!"
"Hi, this is (insert ccMixter or similar username) and I remix music on
(ccMixter.org or similar site)!"
If you do not want to say your name, you can simply say "I listen to
Creative Commons!" or similar.

improved (and I'm sure they can *BG*).
You can record yourself saying the above suggestions (or write your own

We are also looking for volunteers who would like to help us with a
range of video tutorials and other general use video content. What we
would like to do is create animated cartoon-style videos using real
people. These will be consist of 2D pictures animated in a 3D
environment. If you would like to become a cartoon character, please
send a full -length photo of yourself.
So we can make use of your image, please make sure you stand straight
with your legs slightly apart (so your feet are planted directly below
your shoulders) and with your arms straight out at either side. If you
are not able to do this, still send us your image in and we will do our
best. Ensure that your head is slightly below the top of the photo and
your feet are slightly above the bottom (don't cut your head off in the
