Awesome to see you guys!
 
Hi Richard – It is indeed a long thread, and pretty much charts the history (comings and goings) of Indietalk from 2014 to 2017. So it's quite interesting to look back on.

The most advanced cut of the project is here:

PW: indietalk

I think it's really only missing the UFO video, which can be seen elsewhere in this thread. And then we were on the cusp of moving on to sound, grading and other VFX when the project fizzled out again. But a huge amount of work was put in back in the day, and it suddenly came rushing back to me this morning. Not sure if Walter still frequents these climes, but he was the driving force at the end.


Cool man thanks! Interesting project. Hope you guys can finish!

I have my own "covid", project I am doing in spare time. Actually a 20 year redux version of a feature I shot starting in late 2000. But if you give me a statement of your current needs, maybe I can chip in.

I also own a small animation studio:


We can also do various 3D vfx as well as After Effects. If the time needed is not to great, I might be able to contribute something.

Weird, thought I posted a reply already... Anyway.

I might be able to help in some ways.

Please let me know how to get that process started and I can give you more information on the specific ways I might be able to contribute.

EDIT: OK so now my earlier post shows up..... anyway. That was odd.

I'm re-editing, since I am new to this whole project. I've been reading through the history, and it seems like this film was riding on completion of special FX and final editing/composing work?

I have an idea that I would like to propose. This would also involve @indietalk.

Why not take what you have made so far, and release the footage (obviously not all 180gb) and let the community take it on as a monthly challenge? Of course this is all on those who are still looking to finish the project. In fact, it could still be completed by them, but also let the whole community in on it in one fell swoop by asking them to re-edit, renew the footage given as a challenge?

It would be fun, take some pressure off of the remaining folks who have been keeping this in their hearts, and would ensure the project is completed in a fun way?

Just a thought. I'm newish here, so I wont be hurt if the answer is no. But I think you all did some heavy work on this, and I've been on this forum for a few months... Just now saw this thread. It might be beneficial to give it a fresh spin or new method to get to the finish line?

Well I can't speak to this project. It is not mine.

If it was mine, the answer would be to rather break the project up into specific things it needs.

There were some comments about how the UFO footage was a little weak. As one example.

I think if whoever is orginizing this thing, it might be a good idea to simply publish a list of things it needs to complete, or be enhanced. And open up for contributions.

But I am thinking about small things one person or a small team could do like sound fx, foley, FX shots, and so on.

That would be my comment.
 
I want to rob a bank and complete this. Somewhere I have extensive notes on an intro to provide a clearer context and some more tension. Even came up with extra scenes, but that was too much to finish.
And then life happened in all it's good and bad things and Covid as well: working hard to make a living. Luckily: still making videos for a living. :)
