    To clarify:

    (reposted from the writer's board)

    I'm not talking about getting anyone on board to film anything yet. All I'm saying is, if anyone thinks they might be interested and wants to have some story input, now is the time to slip in, read, and comment. My point in posting this to the writers was, if nobody from over there does this, and it looks from over here as if there's not actually going to be a movie made, who's still interested in finishing this script?

    If there's no interest in finishing it, I'm going to drop it. However, if the other writers still want to finish it, we'll soldier on. I'm just trying to count heads here.

    OTOH, I didn't want to step on toes if there ARE still filmies out there who have thoughts to contribute, and we just went on and finished it ourselves here and didn't tell anyone. That certainly wouldn't have been cool.

    I'd like to take a shot at finishing it actually.

    Well...everybody who's still in post on the Resource board.

    Then we'll formulate a Method of Attack.

    Sorry folks... i was away for thanksgiving and couldnt connect to the net [face_frustrated] but im back. I am definately still interested in finishing this project. It might seem like we lost interest but while the writing is finishing up i bet some of us took on projects to pass the time so we've been busy. I'm in.:)

    Oh, hey, yeah, I'm still in for filming. Backdesk is exactly right. I started some other stuff and have been working on that for the past few months. Also, school started, which is a grand ol' pain. ;)

    But yeah, I also want this project to be finished. So, yeah, I'm in too.

    WHAT'S HAPPENING! 12/1/08

    Well, it looks as if we're still on track. While I type in revisions that RX has sent to his part, it's time to start talking about...

    ...the ending!!!

    Um, how exactly do we want to do this?

    So far JedSith has volunteered to write the entire thing himself.

    Anybody else have any thoughts?

    Let's put this discussion on the Resource board, so everybody will definitely see it.

    WHAT'S HAPPENING! 12/2/08

    Guys:

    This new Part IV is a hugely major revision. I strongly advise holding your horses on writing anything until I get it up and everyone's read it.

    More minor updates are going up on the Resource board. For the most up-to-the minute stuff, check there.

    WHAT'S HAPPENING! 12/9/08

    At long last, the last revision is finished and is posted here.

    Sorry about the spacing. It's 2 o'clock in the morning and I'm tired. I'm not going back through all of that to put spacing back in where copy-paste mysteriously deletes it all out :mad:.

    Everyone read, and if it looks OK then, almost a year later, it's time to...

    write the ending!

    So this is gonna actually be made as a movie?

    If so, can I do some effects? Cgi environments mostly, but I can do some rotoing and such as well.

    Short answer: yes.

    Vidina is FX supervisor, so he'll get you whatever paperwork need to be signed...

    Link to the off-site script discussion thread.

    Does anyone get any benefit from that site?
    Should I continue updating it?

    I never got an account to discuss things over there. But I do benefit.
    I'm gonna reread the whole thing when its done... like...over and over and over and over and over.

    I guess the board is OK, but it takes a long time for posts to post and pages to load. On my computer at least.

    I wanted to keep the writing stuff on Resource because that's where the writers hang out. But I can see, once you guys get into Mystery Filming Minutiae, that it would be a lot more convenient to have that whole board for it. Our job is almost done, and really it only took the one thread, plus cross-talk with you guys over here. But you could conceivably need a bajillion threads for filming-related stuff.

    Desperately seeking opinions...

    If you haven't read the script yet, especially Part Four, we'd appreciate as many eyes on it as we can get.

    Many thanks.

    Going once...

    Going twice...

    If you don't weigh in, the rest of us get to do whatever we want to...

    I have the round of changes done and planned to get them posted.

    Then Christmas happened.

    Then New Year's happened.

    Then...*gulp!*...tax time happened.

    I'll get 'em up soon...promise!!

    I apologize to everyone for the long delay. What I fervently hope will be the final Part IV is posted up here.

    All interested parties take a look, and see if it passes muster.

    If so, it's on to the ending.

    JedSith expressed an interest in writing the ending. If he's still interested, I have no objections.

    Anybody else have any thoughts about this?
