Bump — and I know that Roboko is working on something for this too. Anyone else?..
I’d really like to get this page up in the next week, as I’m making the effort to get some clips done every week, it’d be cool if they existed somewhere closer to our threads than my website. :)
Please chime in!
Everyone please do contact Odilo. if you have any ideas or wish to contribute (notably photography) to our project page.
Guys and Gals, I am going to create a vimeo channel for our project tonight. Will post the link here when it’s done. Please feel free to start posting some clips, or anything on video related to the project, whenever you want to.
This way it’ll all be set up for adding to our Garage page when it goes up.
All, I’ve made a channel on vimeo for us. Check it out:
Ergodic Cinema Project on MUBI Garage
I thought mysterious stepping stones in sort of a bluish computer color would be good as our symbol. If you all, including you, Roboko, want me to use this as the image for our Garage page, let me know…
Once our Garage page is up, I’ll put a link to it on the vimeo page too…
I think it looks great! Whatever photo we use on the channel we could probably use on the project page (unless I’ve mistaken your use of terminology).
Yay! Thanks, Anonymouse! :)
I know that Roboko is working on something and I’m curious to see what it will look like when it is completed. Then we can decide as a group what works best, maybe both in different functions — I’ve seen the beginnings of what she is doing and it’s very different from my image, thinking it could be perfect as a logo…? At any rate, it’s cool and graphic and nothing like my image, really interested to see it when it is done.
Woman’s First Reply
I’ve finished one, halfway done with two more
Are you going to use actors in your short? If not, I’d suggest editing some audio/music to emphasize what we see on the screen.
Hey Santropez – the only actor is my short is – ME! :)
Thanks for your suggestions… I’ll take into consideration, right now only the intro. has music but that’s not to say that I won’t use more for the rest. As for audio, there is ambient sound in both parts that don’t have music — have you heard it? Otherwise, I suppose I’ll have to turn up the volume.
Please do not consider any of these pieces of my segment completed, they are definitely subject to revision, especially when I put all of them together and see how it all plays out. But I just wanted to get something out there for now so we’ve got more than our conversations happening on the project, i.e. something more tangible. They are all pieces of a work in progress, for certain.
Anonymouse — I left a message on Roboko’s wall re: the image for our Garage page yesterday… How much more time do you think we should wait on this?… I’m ready to send Luis the image I used for the vimeo channel…
Well up until now, we’ve been approving entire Acts. That way we can have the same deadlines for everyone.
Go ahead and send Luis the materials for the project page/ Vimeo channel.
If we don’t have Roboko’s script by Sunday, we’ll vote on the other two and PolarisDiB’s pitch.
OK, I heard from Roboko and if she isn’t ready by the end of the day, she said go ahead and send my image and whatever else is needed to Luis for the Garage page.
So anticipate that happening between tonight and tomorrow…. Yay! :)
Bump. This is your final chance to submit a script to Act 3, a pitch to Act 5.
Tomorrow, we’ll begin voting on the two Act 3 scripts and PolarisDiB’s Act 5 proposition. The remaining Act 3 script still unsubmitted will be listed as “delayed” unless submitted before tomorrow evening.
Continue checking back here and be sure to vote.
We’ll also be publishing a fourth Production Note after the vote (which will end in 7 days from Monday evening).
Also, please upload as many stills as you can and be sure to upload any videos (dailies, weeklies, whatever you just shot) to our Vimeo channel so we can get them up on our Project Page.
Below is the latest vote. By now, I’m sure you’re all well aware of how this works and how to submit a ballot and so I won’t bother going into all that. In any case, this vote will run from the present moment until Monday, April 25th at exactly 8:01 PM GMT or 3:01 PM EST (exactly 12:01 PM PST).
One thing to note however is that Roboko’s submission is still pending. In other words, you should wait until that script has been submitted before voting or, alternatively, you may alter your vote at a later date so long as the vote is still underway.
Approval of Act 3 (Scripts):
Tremolo – 1 Yes/No
TheGamgee – 1 Yes/No
Roboko – 1 Yes/No
Approval of Act 5 (pitch):
PolarisDiB – Yes/No
Please read all submissions in the Submissions thread before voting.
Delegation of Roles Referendum (Addendum):
Producer: Anonymouse – 1 Yes/No
Since no one else has put themselves forward as a candidate for this position, the vote is “yes/ no.”
You can submit your vote however you like (we’re not as uptight as those Director’s Cup guys around here) but please use the above format.
The minimum number of votes needed to pass is 4, which shouldn’t be hard to obtain given that we have eight people making segments. My vote is only cast in the case of a tie. If the minimun number of notes isn’t met, votes will need to be recast. Anyone can vote provided they have a good general knowledge of what we’re voting on, there is no need to contribute a segment to the project.
@PolarisDiB: I still recommend that you read Roboko’s script (yet to be submitted) but I did count your vote. Also, you can’t vote for yourself and so I didn’t count “I vote yes for everything” as including Act 5 approval.
Roboko still hasn’t submitted a script, so it’s being counted as delayed. Here’s the vote:
Tremolo – 1 Yes/No
TheGamgee – 1 Yes/No
Here’s my vote:
Tremolo – Yes
TheGamgee – Yes
PolarisDiB – Yes
Producer: Anonymouse – Yes
Here is my revised vote to include accepting Roboko’s detailed outline as posted in the Submissions thread today:
Tremolo – Yes
TheGamgee – Yes
Roboko — Yes
Tremolo – 3 Yes/No
TheGamgee – 3 Yes/No
Roboko – 2 Yes/No
PolarisDiB – 2 Yes/No
Producer: Anonymouse – 3 Yes/No
We only have three votes. If we don’t get at least one more in the next 36 hours, this round of voting will fail.
By the way Odilo, we’ll be doing another PN after this.
Below is a general annoucement:
Everyone, please update the status of your production in this thread (tell us what you’re doing and how it’s coming along) as soon as possible so we can get out another Production Note. If you have any, we need stills from the set and clips from anything you’ve shot so far. Send them to Odilonvert so that she can include them in the Production Note and/ or upload them to our Vimeo channel. We’ll be getting a Project Page on Garage soon, so we need everything we can get.
Remember that you should be checking back here regularly for updates, this is very important.
I will be bumping this several times in the next 36 hours, so even if you’ve been living atop a tree for the last three weeks, you should have read it (unless there’s no WiFi in said tree).
One more thing: everyone should post here as soon as possible so that we know you’re still interested in the project. I’ve been noticing that posting has somewhat declined and that votes are barely getting the minimum number of ballots to pass. If you’re not interested in continuing with this project, please let me know. Otherwise, do try to be more engaged! This can only fly if everyone works together. You’ll be letting down the nine other members if you just flake out.
Ok, let me know when and I’ll do another PN! :D
PMing time, mayhaps.
TheGamgee – Yes
Roboko – Yes
We still need Dandara, Ryan E., and Santropez to vote…
The vote is ending in exactly 22 hours and 44 minutes from now.
Below is the same annoucement from above:
“Everyone, please update the status of your production in this thread (tell us what you’re doing and how it’s coming along) as soon as possible so we can get out another Production Note. If you have any, we need stills from the set and clips from anything you’ve shot so far. Send them to Odilonvert so that she can include them in the Production Note and/ or upload them to our Vimeo channel. We’ll be getting a Project Page on Garage soon, so we need everything we can get.”
Remember that deadlines do exist and that we do actually want your films in eventually. Although it would be difficult to put a specific deadline on it, you should have your segments in within a reasonable period of time. So in other words, none of this “TBA Q3 2012” stuff.
