Default Avatar Communities' Film Project Update

It’s getting close:
As our community project edges its way to completion, with just one more weekend left for filming to take place, the shots continue to roll in with a few still outstanding to complete. The real drive is to get the film complete before Avatar comes out at the cinemas again. I mean we’re all going to be wanting to go and see Avatar again rather than filming – including me!

The ‘making of’:
I thought it important to capture a bit of the background to this film project as it has been quite an achievement for everyone involved. So to this end I have started work on doing a ‘making of’ video with contributions from a number of the film crew. There will also be an few bloopers included too. Hopefully this will be a nice record of how we put it together, why it was important to us and what we hope the outcome will be.

An International Community Production:
One aspect with making this film together is that the film crew come from all over the world and not every country have English as their first language. So members from those countries have very kindly provided a translation of the script in their own native tongue. The result is that our film will be able to have subtitles for Germany, Czech Republic, Finland and Brazil.

A Major Development:
As our film project has been progressing one of our number, Unil Makto, has been working on an interactive feature to go with it. This is in the form of a fun environmental quizz that aims to highlight the effects us humans are having on our only home. As part of the testing for it, he passed it around his office for his colleagues to try out. Whilst this was going on, his boss found out and wanted to know more. So Unil Makto showed him some clips from our film.

Now this is where it got a little bit exciting. Unil Makto works in an area that looks after iTunes and his boss has suggested that our film gets put on to iTunes for everyone to see!

In addition to that, he has started work on an App for the iPhone that can include our film and his interactive feature. The App, which will be free, can then be downloaded by anyone with an iPhone or iPod touch and a valid iTunes account.

So what once started out as a forum project that would be put on You Tube (which we will do as well), now has the potential to reach the many people who use iTunes.

To see a test screen shot from the App that is in development click on the link below:

Well that's all for now.

Kiyevame,

Alan - Your Friendly Forum Film Maker.

Yeah. That's our Unil Makto for you! He's really been putting an incredible amount of time and effort in to the quizz and app. We're all very grateful for what he has done.

Kiyevame,

Alan

You're welcome. I think it's important to keep everyone upto date with progress. I can't wait to see the completed film either - and I'm editing it together. There are still few shots outstanding, including some from me! But there is only one weekend left of filming before we really need to go into 'post-production' in order to get it done in time.

Another interesting aspect is how many versions are going to be rendered. Ok, it's not going to be like Avatar, which I think have 70 versions 'printed' for release. But our film will have subtitle versions for Brazil, Czech Republic, Germany and Finland. There will also need to be PAL and NTSC versions for the different TV standards the various countries have, then there will be verions rendered for iTunes and the iPhone app. So I make that about twelve versions! My computer is going to be panting after thing little lot. That's going to be quite a boring day for me.

Toodle pip,

Alan

Yeah, I hadn't really though about it until I wrote my dit above. You know this maybe be an 'amateur' film, but we have gone through excatly the same processes that professional film makers do. From the intitial idea and filming throught to editing and distribution. The only difference is that they are trained in it and also do it for a living!

Kiyevame,

Alan
