This is an excellent question. I don't know how many editing enthusiasts we have on the forum, so what I can accept might very well change if someone else comes on board with another program, but at the moment right now I use Pinnacle's Studio.

If one is using tape I can pretty much accept anything: VHS, Beta, etc.

If someone wants to just send an actual video file, Studio can handle either .AVI or .MPG files (as in MPG-2 format).

I can convert YouTube files to MPG, but I don't know at the moment what something like that would look like when blown up to a normal picture size. Probably quite smeary and murky.

As far as digital cameras go, I don't know just yet. When I use my digital camera (as in my photo camera, not my digital video camera) to take video, it outputs it as a Quicktime file, so I don't know if that's standard for smaller cameras. I can, however, sniff around to see if I can find some sort of conversion software, but again, I can't guarantee that it will look like anything too hot or would be useable.

Hey, if you have an idea or if you had people in mind to speak on-camera, feel free to start as soon as possible. Just PM me beforehand.

And yes, Nancy, please feel free to talk to your friend and see what they can come up with. :)

I could help in some ways. I might be able to convince my friend who has a video camera to let me use it to the one show it looks I'll be able to attend.

Or else I can help in terms of script writing maybe or idea generation. I may not have had movie script writing experience, but I've done plenty of news/video editing. I know quite a few do's and dont's of video editing.

I can help in any creative storming you might want.

As I don't have any access to the software I had before from my university because I graduated...so no access to the rooms anymore.

I can help, too! I was planning to take a camera to the Scranton show anyway, so this'll turn out fine!

I have some artistic ability, I can whip up an Al drawing pretty quick, I have a camera (with somewhat limited space) and have video editing software, if any of those capabilities are needed 8)
Oh snap!

I'm willing to help. I'll ask some of my local friends to help out. I'm going to 2 shows, so I'll bring my camera to those as well.

Excellent, thank you. :) I want as many people to be involved with this as possible, so by all means, if anyone has any ideas on subjects to tackle or angles to pursue, let's hear them! :)

Oh cool, thanks!!

Anyone else going to Scranton want to give him a hand?

The most important thing we'll need is fan footage. Fans talking about Al on camera, fans showing off their artwork...heck, if a bunch of fans were making a loosely connected parade float and wanted to tape their progress, let's see it!

Great! Which two shows are you planning on hitting? I ask because I'd like to follow the same pattern as last year by making up roll calls, schedules for the web site, etc.

Speaking of which, I'll hopefully be able to get the web site, MySpace, etc. all updated with info on the current project by Monday or Tuesday of next week. And those who volunteered last year know where to go as well.
