Hi Dancing & Lipsynching Whovians!
I know it’s been at least four months since Gallifrey One and you might be wondering, “Where’s the video, Lee?” Well, here’s my answer: It’s on my computer’s hard drive still. As you may not know, it’s particularly difficult to find good times to meet with people who have volunteered to do things for this project. It took about a whole month after to get all the footage people had, it took a whole two months after Gally to get the Project Board together in one place to do scene selection, and it’s going to be a whole four months after Gally just to get some free time from our pro bono editor to piece together the video.
So, we’re slated to start editing this weekend and will continue until early July. Hopefully we can have a teaser or final product by end of July. I’m sorry it has taken sooo long, but we held out for a month or two for people that really wanted to get footage in. And then it was just a matter of logistics. But, we do have a nice surprise in store for the video if you all continue to be patient.
Being that this is a collaborative and free project, where no one is being paid for their time, it does take a backseat to other activities where people are earning a paycheck. But, we promised a video before the end of 2012, so hopefully we’ll have something sooner rather than later.
I’m still trying to muster up a correct time to propose to Shaun Lyon (of Gallifrey One’s board) a possible Opening Ceremonies viewing of the video (or of a different version of the video, since we have SOOO much footage) for Gallifrey One 2013.
Thank you for being so patient, and please pass this on.
