Do we have any directors/video editors?

As a group effort between GLAAD, HRC, and many other organizations, http://www.idoin30seconds.org/ has been started as a contest for the best marriage equality commercial spot.  one of the biggest problems I'm seeing is the lack of good quality video.  Aren't we supposed to be full of creativity and vision?  There's only four entries up for vote right now (and I imagine they've got other submissions but maybe don't have them up for viewing yet).  We need something that's not only going to make people think, we need something that's going to slip by them as being professional.  Presentation is everything.

The only one I'm terribly fond of is "Straights Allowed to Marry" but I think there could be a few other key points mentioned to help get the message through to the people that see us as demonic manifestation.  Those people don't think the same way as other people. 

Grrrr... There's just no easy way to get everything in a 30 second ad spot, is there. Any ideas?
