Ok, I'm organising a cool project, this is the idea:

there are 5 people that make a movie toghether. when the first one finishe his/her 2-5 min part, he/she sends it to the 2nd person, and so on. the trick is, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th person will only sned HIS/HER part, not the person before's part so that the next person doesn't know what happened before. so in the end this will be a pretty wild movie. someone that has alamdv can put it on fxhome cinema. now for details:

1. i need 4 volunteers that are ready to actually put some time into this

2. we can send our part either by mail, email, or we can stream it through, say, MSN Messenger.

3. it would help if you had a rather fast internet connection (not 56k unless you send it to the person by mail).

4. if you want to send your part my mail, the person you send it to will have to agree to give you his/her address.

5. i will make the first part biggrin

6. make your file size as tiny as possible!

7. there cant really be a main character, as there are 5 different people doing this smile

look forward to working with u!


PS wouldnt it be cool to have a rely good person in this, say, sollthar or sidewinder or mechaforce or something, so that you really see a difference in the segments (compare mine to theirs, youll see a big difference wink )

Yeah, I'm in pre-production on my full length film so I can't do it right now. The spring would be better for me also.

Now, to the reservations I have.

While it would be cool to do it "on the cuff" so to speak, it's not realistic that you'll have a good product if you do.

Got to hammer out the script, got to have some sort of tie in between filmmakers or all you've got is a bunch of short films with no connection, and in that case, just hold a short film festival Pooky.

So there's ground work to be laid.

Get a story line, write the script, find your filmmakers, then do it.

Something worth doing is worth doing right. (Somebody said that before)

You're going to have an awful lot of problems doing something like that. One is quality issue. If you want everyone to make their videos as small as possible, some will be really small and crappy looking and some won't.

It's not a bad idea. It's been suggested before, but I don't know how well it would work.

Well, here's my question. If, say, four filmmakers get together and each make part of a movie... who gets credit when you post it in the Cinema? neutral

uhh... im guessing thats pooky, right? well, if you wanted to post it, youd have to buy alamdv. i think that whoever edits it should post it and write our names in BIG CAPITALS so its hard to miss our names.

I have a better idea.

You post it in a series of shorts, and each producer uploads his / her own short in the series: "The Ballad Of Joe Stubble: Episode 3".

Great! Im on board but wont be able to start working untill march time. But already excited about this project. Ive got a server we can use for 10gig's worth of video hosting free while we are working on the project. I am also a cable user so transfers shouldnt be too tricky! I was thinking dont mean to ake over but what if......after we have completed our section we upload it to my server as a .rar file as these offer the best compresion but password the archive. Then when all parts are finished we each tell the person whos going to be compling our password for him to render and upload to the net? What do you think?

Well we could post the final version on your server but what we're gonna do is, instead of transferring the files to the next person, we post our part on the cinema (if u can't then someone else on the team does it) so then you don't have to upload it, you can just see it in the cinema. So it's like International movie: part 5 or something. then once we got all of the bits, i'll download em from fxhome and I'll edit it and if we go for my comdey-swat story (see story ideas post) then i can do the narrator (bluescreen it) and then I will post it on the cinema (since there are gonna be alam effets from u guys, I can biggrin ) as International Movie: Final Version. That's the plan.

Posting all the sections in the cinema is a bad idea. Why do you need to have them there to download? just download the sections off of someone's server. Also, I wouldn't watch the final version if I just watched all the parts.
