file "Learn to Play V:TES" manuals?

Recently I pondered the question how to attract new V:TES players and how to communicate the rules in an accessible fashion.

I remember the current YouTube series by Extra Credits who present the rules of Magic: The Gathering in a series of videos an quite accessible fashion:
Learning to Play Magic #1 - Core Concepts - Extra Credits
Learning to Play Magic #2 - What's in a Color? - Extra Credits
Learning to Play Magic #3 - The Stack - Extra Credits
Learning to Play Magic #4 - Building a Deck - Extra Credits
Learning to Play Magic #5 - The Psychology of Magic: The Gathering - Extra Credits

Is there something akin to this for Vampire: The Eternal Struggle?
It doesn't have to be animated of course. Just a series which lays out the rules and how to play. I considered starting a project in this regard, yet my video (editing) skills are about as weak as I am rather inexperienced in all things V:TES.

Thank you :)

Another, somewhat related question. I got asked to show someone how VTES is played at the weekend. Which is quite a challenge, as I myself still got stuff to learn.

Is there an easy "how to guide" to read or maybe even print?
I know that e.g. for Go there are quite nice cartoons out there explaining the rules in a few panels ^^:

Would this help?

New Player Guide / Cheat Sheet
Ke Carlton has put together a cheat sheet / new player guide which is clear and doesn't contain too much noise. It's not meant to be a replacement for the rules, but it should be enough for a new player to get up to speed with the core mechanics of the game and when to do what.

High quality A3 PDF (recommended). Also available in French.

It does indeed help a great deal :)

The only thing that I found missing on the VTES New Player Guide is the voting, which is explaind in the helpful vtesplaymat :D Well, and the aspect that I think "tap" changed to "lock" for copyright reasons?

I will read, and maybe print, the rulebook in addition to the big pieces.

Copyright reasons indeed.
Which is also the reason no more "Deckmaster" on the card backs...
