Default Avatar Communities Film Project, 'Our Only Home' - Premier

Kaltxi!

The Avartar Communites Film Project:
You may be aware that some time ago an Avatar Communities Film Project was started. The purpose of this project was to take one of the messages from James Cameron's film, Avatar, namely the need to look after our home planet, and make our own film on the subject.

Well three months later our film is now complete. In total 20 of us have been involved from both the 'Avatar Forums' and 'Tree of Souls' communities. The contributors to the film have come from nine countries around the world to film sections that were then edited together to become the film 'Our Only Home'.

In addition to the film an App for the iPhone and iPod is being spear headed by Unil Makto that will incorporate the film and also a quiz covering our home planet. This will be free to download. Work is still ongoing to embed the film into the app and getting it through review. A further post will be made when it is available.

Although the film is in English, subtitled versions have also been created for those who took part from non-English speaking countries. We are indebted to AnlungTR from Brazil, Na'vi_supporter from Czech Republic, Tsu'at from Finland and Jake's Mango from Germany who have provided the translations.

'Our Only Home' Premier:
So it is fitting, on the eve of the release of Avatar SE in the cinemas, that we are able to premier our Avatar communities film to you all. Enjoy.

YouTube - Our Only Home.mp4

The You Tube Channel for the film can be found here:
YouTube - OurOnlyHome's Channel

Czech Republic subtitles version:
YouTube - Our Only Home - Czech ST.mp4
Finnish subtitle version:
YouTube - Our Only Home - Finnish ST.mp4
German subtitle version:
YouTube - Our Only Home - German ST.mp4
Portuguese subtitle version:
YouTube - Our Only Home - Portuguese ST.mp4

More To Come:
In additon to the main film a 'making of' is currently being put together with information on how the film was made and thoughts from those who took part. Information on when this and the App will be available will be posted in due course.

Irayo. Eywa ngahu.

Alan

Hey...I feel like I've commented on this before LOL

Again, you did a phenomenal job, Alan. If you have any more film ideas in the future, hit me up. It would be my pleasure to work with you again. I really enjoyed myself while filming.


I hope everyone enjoys watching the film

@ Josie20: Really? I wonder where that was?

Irayo tsmukan. But as you know it was one great team effort and I certainly could not have done any of this without everyone's enthusiasm and dedication to making it happen and seeing it through. I really could not have had a greater bunch of good people to take this journey with. I really hope everyone involved has enjoyed and gain from it in their own way.

Oel ngati kameie friend,

Alan

That sounds like a good idea. How do we do that?

Amazing job, Alan!

I do not think the film could have come out any better! I am so honored to say that I worked with so many great people and that I was able to contribute to such a great cause. Even if it was only a small portion. I hope that many will see this and it will impact and inspire them as it inspires me. Great job ma tsmukan! If you ever need more help from some people with any projects again I would gladly offer my help a second time!

Wow I just... can't... explain enough how good this is :shok: (school very soon and just saw the vid)

This needs a better re-post in 9 hours or so

Btw, what do you need to search for to find the Iphone app in appstore? I WANT I WANT I WANT!!!

Hey Gunny. Irayo. I glad you were on board and gave it your all. I feel privileged to have met you all (metaphorically) and been able to make this film together. Yeah, the hope is we do inspire others. There's still a few bits on the go, like Unil Makto's app and the 'making of' - liked your out takes by the way! Yeah, you never know we might do something in the future, who knows.

Kiyevame,

Alan

Kaltxi LA,

Thanks for comment. As for the App, that is still under final review and we will post and update when it is complete with details on how to get it.

I want too!

Fantastic demonstration of leadership by Alan. There were so many ways a project like this could have stalled, and he kept it moving and kept everyone involved. That's a rare skill, believe me.

Whoa, this is brilliant! I'm just sad to have not been able to take part because of exams and stuff (I initially was going to, but exams got in the way..)

Fantastic though, and it sure has inspired me.
