I'm Ready!

Award Category 
Drupal Version 
Brief Overview 

The Peter G. Peterson Foundation’s mission is to increase public awareness of the nature and urgency of key fiscal challenges threatening America's future and to accelerate action on them. To address these challenges successfully, they work to bring Americans together to find and implement sensible, long-term solutions that transcend age, party lines and ideological divides in order to achieve real results. The I'm Ready! video project is designed to fulfill both those objectives. This new project allows for members of the community to upload videos and help spread the word about the national debt issue. The citizen videos will demonstrate to our elected officials the need to fix it.

Key Modules, Theme, and Distribution Used 
For this site, we used the following modules with a custom theme and standard Drupal distribution: Panels Views Colorbox FiveStar Rules custom theme created from scratch featuring icon fonts HTML5 and CSS3
Why these Modules, Theme, and Distribution were Chosen 

 

DOOR3 used a custom Kaltura integration for video upload and recording, to allow users to use their computer cameras to immediate record and upload directly the site for submission. 

 

WHY THIS APPROACH?

Video submissions was one of the key features of the site.  Using this method (Drupal with the custom Kaltura integration), we avoided the need to build a module from scratch at potentially significant time and expense.
