This is a proposal for spreading the Word about Bitcoin in the UK, it uses the idea of projecting timely messages, on recognised public buildings (alongside PR) to spread a message.
Of course, we’d work on the messages, the graphics to be projects. Come up with some idea, work on the feasibility of physically being long enough at a location to project an image, before being arrested/kicked off, etc. And engage a PR company to ensure we get some coverage.
To do anything other than a straight-forward projection would be a lot more costly, though could be amazing: having dancing Bitcoins flying high in the sky whilst the cartoon pound coins and dollars are setting sail on the Titanic into a sea of debt, would be pretty amazing. See what they did in London or Madrid. I’ve spoken to a colleague that works in this space, and with the work involved in designing animations, modelling buildings, and setting up a projector array – would take the project into the 95BTC range.
So for this more straightforward London building project the cost of projector and transport hire is around £2,500. Getting graphics done around £1,000. The likelihood of Westminster Council springing a fine at £2,500 is pretty high, see here. Engaging a PR agency will cost around £1,500 add in a few unknowns it’s a 20 BTC project.
The impact of this project is that there’d be at the least a local news feature on London News, mentions on Local radio and mentions in regional press, maybe national and even then international.
