Here is the file for....Episode One

Zardoz has already been kind enough to agree to recreate his momentous encounter with Phil Henderson two and a half years ago. We will need a volunteer to play Phil Henderson. I have already tested the hair and make-up and it works great.

For the second half of the script we'll need quite a few more people including an actor to play Douglas Sharper. ALSO, I'd like someone to help us track down the original participants to see if 1) they would like to play themselves in the scene OR 2) give permission for an actor to play them. If neither of these options is available to us, then we change the names to protect the innocent. Wink Dusante will be easy to find at UO but the rest may be trickier.

More news soon.

I was not personally present for either 'event'. Let me know if you need an actor... or a stunt double...

Definitely yes, Cuzin. We'll use you as our regular Douglas Sharper. So, dig up a picture of Sharper then jump into the GT dressing room (Relto closet) and apply just the right amount of hair, make-up, and costuming to look as much like him as you can. Take a picture even! Then we'll get back to you with the shooting schedule.

Yay! I don't know if I ever layed eyes on him...

Any hints on where I can find some pix?

If everything is going to be filmed with sub-titles, shall I make a new 'name tag' for myself? (is that allowed? is Sharper's name 'reserved' somewhere somehow?)

No need for a "name tag" or any such thing. You are an actor playing a role. Besides, no KI images or writing will be visible in the film.

As for Sharper pics....I'm pretty sure there's at least one good one in the Great Tree website gallery. Let us know if you find it or not or we'll dig one up for you.

EDIT: Yes, there are three pics of Sharper in that gallery. One has the Yeesha shirt. Can't use that. First film takes place before he took the Journey. He wears the pocket pants, green short-sleeved shirt. He wears the big moustache. Unfortunately, I can't find his hat in our wardrobe so we'll do without.

Thanks, Tweek. Every little bit helps.

I can play someone too, if you want. I started college with a theater major (didn't finish as one, but that's a long and tedious story that I've bored several of you with already.)

I have no problem playing a male if it would help. Or not. I am, as always, flexible. Smile

Thanks, Anna, we could use all the actors we can get. We'll be in touch soon.

NOTE: None of the actors need to memorize their lines. How great is that?

Ah, but memorizing lines is soooo fun! Wink

I'm glad my internet problems are sorted out so I can be part of the project. Thanks to all who have put time and energy into planning this. It's going to be awesome! Smile

Same. Consider me to be constantly on volunteer status, like that kid in the back of the classroom with his had up going, "ooh, ooh."

I also volunteer both for acting and editing..... of course, there are people far more talented than I for editing in our little group, so I wont hold my breath on that part Confused

Just wish I could download that file... IE is laughing at my inability to do so *sigh*

edit: nm.... I wrote that, and it decided to let me download ;D

Thanks, Eleri and Jon. We'll need you, for sure. Right now I've got a PM out to Marten with an idea as to how to proceed. If he likes it we will move post haste.

In the meantime, Eleri, if you'd like to try and track down a few people to determine if they're still involved with the Rru community. Seems like a perfect job for an ambassador. I've already sent out a PM to Dusante.

I guess your best bet is UO. What we're trying to achieve here is to get as many of the original participants to play themselves in these movies. It leads to greater authenticity and will also help to bring more people back into the Cavern before the official re-opening. In the event said participants won't or can't be involved, we will ask them for permission to use actors in their stead. If that doesn't work, we will change the names.

BTW, anybody can assist in this area. If anyone sees a name pop up that they know, feel free to make contact with that person and pass the info onto us here.

To get the Sharper hat, you'd have to film it on the Great Tree's private access to the cavern (*cough* GT Shard *cough*), or gently nudge a Cyantist who might've kept one... they're such pedants about keeping memorabilia, you never know what they might have.

BTW, I got your message Professor, and whatever you like works for me. The shooting schedule will be the hardest part to negotiate, I believe. I'm mostly available in the evenings after 10 Eastern, 7 Pacific. On nights like this one, I'm not even available until 2 hours after that.
