Re: Collaborative #2: UWOL Around the World

Well, you've given me a great intro, Steve! ( David Attenborough lookalike :)

This is exactly how I see us starting - you have captured the spirit of the project in one !

My only doubt, at this stage, is how that script is distributed - I have a theory that a VO narrator provides the intro and link between submissions - here I think, some of the script would be given to Chris Hurd, and maybe then back to narrator for the lead in.

Great stuff, and I'm looking forward to more contributions!

Steve,

I agree with Paul. This is a great intro, thank you!

And I'm glad to see how this project is developing.
This will be fun! :)

Re: Collaborative #2: UWOL Around the World

A great job from the Coordinating Committee.
Also like the script Steve, it looks nice.
I think this will be a great project, with so many clever people around.
I will be happy to try out and make some music.

Re: Collaborative #2: UWOL Around the World

Hi everyone.
Hope you all have had time to check out the guidelines/ theme I posted before the weekend.
Within the next couple days, the CC would like to get the different tasks confirmed. And after that, we'll start working on the details.

Steve has already done a great script for the intro.

Further details (like the various questions everyone should answer in their submissions...) will have to be determined. CC will talk with Steve about this.
Feel free to bring thoughts and ideas.

Re: Collaborative #2: UWOL Around the World

A little update:

Steve is now working on the script, and will finish it in cooperation with CC.

Editor:
Mike Sims has volunteered to be the Lead Editor.
Trond has volunteered to assist with editing.
If we need more than 2 editors, it is preferably that person use Adobe Premiere, to easier exhange sequences between us. (Both Mike and Trond use Premiere)

From CC, Dale will coordinate the music making with Geir Inge.

EDIT:
CC kindly asks Paul Mailath to be the narrator / VO for this project. Email has been sent to you through dvinfo.

...............
My trusted laptop desided to make a sudden retirement the other day, so during the next few weeks, I will basically only have internet through my phone and at work.
Hopefully it won't cause any delays on my work for this project.

Re: Collaborative #2: UWOL Around the World

Looks like things are shaping up well. I'd offer past footage but never completed many of the competitions. But I am keen to get out and shoot more. Might even have snow on the hills soon - never got to the snow during a UWOL round. My only reservation is the best spots to film are usually national parks, and for personal use that's fine. But after that it gets complicated (in Victoria/Australia at least). I think editorial you don't have to pay for, but commercial productions and anything else - you have to pay for a ranger to be there by the hour, plus a shooting fee per day/half day. Don't know if there's similar restrictions around the globe.

I'm also interested in VO/narration, but if you have that covered then so be it. I could do a bad Steve Irwin impersonation though ;-)

Re: Collaborative #2: UWOL Around the World

Hello Andrew,

We already have Paul Mailath confirmed for the narration, but thank you very much for your offer.
I will put you on the list of contributors for this project. I have 14 names including yours on that list.
(Steve Irwin was amazing! I used to watch his tv series.)

I think they have the same restrictions (or even worse) in the USA, but I am not aware of any such restrictions for filming in the national parks here in Norway.

.........
For the guidelines, please have a look at the attachment to my post #58 (page 4) in this thread.

Hi Trond
Haven't checked in a while but looks like things are going along really well. I'd be willing to supply some footage if needed.

Steve has more or less completed his script /idea, and CC is discussing this with him and Mike Sims at the moment.
CC will within the next few days publish the final theme /idea for the film, including deadlines and so on.

Stay tuned.
