Is The History of the Great Tree series on YouTube? Or is it just Downloadable?

I had no idea these videos existed ... please finish the episodes if you can, it's really helpful for a latecomer to the cavern to see why people care so much. I just wish I'd been there, but the videos are the next best thing - thanks.

i'd LOVE to see the series completed. i think it's an important part of the uru story that new (and even not so new) explorers should know. and for me it's great to "relive" some of these events.

With that in mind, we really need some place where all the backstory can be put in one place.
Other than a few summaries, I know of no one site that contains the entire story of Uru - from Loftin's discovery to
Cate Alexander's resignation.

Dear TOOO and all interested, please have a look here for a RECAP of The Restoration So Far...
An awesome, extraordinary effort by our very own Vid (vidkid7) ... The entire story of Uru - from
Loftin's discovery to Cate Alexander - not her resignation but to the Episode: A New Light... Have fun... :D


I agree, vidkid did a great job - but, as you said, janaba, it's incomplete. The only place I know of to find the rest of the story is at Cavern Communications Network archives, but, as you can see, they only carry the story from Scars on to Exodus.

There are timelines at uru archives and at DPWR and even chatlogs from D'ni Restoration Archive (incomplete) and chatlogs at Uru Obsession - if you don't mind slogging through a LOT of information!

That's an awful lot to ask of newcomers, and something - I have no idea what - is needed to, well, organize all this data for newcomers to easily access.

You may laugh, but I'll admit it--I never actually saw the videos that there are now until I got to SL and saw Vax's museum of them with Kaelis. I was so moved, because at the time I think I was still mourning a bit, and the movies brought home things so clearly, and reminded me of so many things as if they'd happened only yesterday. I was so sad that the series was incomplete.

I voted that I could only offer my vocal support, because I'm not sure what you mean by "editing." If you mean film editing, I have little experience with that, but I do have a degree in English editing, so if you need help with transcripts or anything like that, I am willing to help. I did have one class in video clips, but my group mates knew about the software they had on their computers and did most of the actual video editing--so while I know the theories, I have little actual practice. Sadly, the educational deadlines tend to encourage students to allocate tasks to the students who are the most skilled in them, giving the others little or no chance to learn. So, yell if you need me! (Ask Kaelis if you can't figure out how to reach me--I know you talk to him.) ;)

Edited because I forgot something!

To answer questions & suggestions thus far:

* Can you add narration?: Sorry, this idea sounds great, but would really add a lot of additional effort and the movies would take even longer to produce.
* How did I miss these?: Not sure, but I stopped promoting them when the project stopped in January 2008...
* Is it on YouTube?: No; many of the videos exceed 10 minutes in length and would need to be split into parts. Also, this project launched before YouTube HD, and in the original 4x3 format, the subtitles were too small to easily read.
* What do you mean by "editing"?: Script editing - apologies for my omission of the word "script" in the poll.
* What about MOUL Season One?: (Before it is asked) At this time, I have no plans for a Season One re-enactment.

If you know people who hang out primarily at other forums (Greeters, Writers, Amber Horizons, Meeting Place, etc.) it might be helpful to point people at this poll.

Of course I'm interested, but you already know that! :D I would continue the Dutch translations, and try to help in other areas whenever possible.

I've been around here for a long time - but I have been unaware of this project until now. Admittedly I have not spent as much time in the forums as a lot of you....

I'd be happy to help however I can. I have plenty of resources but little skill in video editing - but I'm always able to learn! Let me know how I can help.

Walt

Count me in, Marten! I can certainly edit scripts...I just earned my BA in English with emphasis in Professional Writing and Editing from The University of Texas at San Antonio, if that makes any difference! :P Kaelis poked me about your reply almost as soon as we spoke, since he didn't want to answer for me, although he was fairly sure he knew what my answer was....silly man, er, explorer! ;) That makes one in the edit column.

It would be great if you can complete the Prologue Documentaries.
Available if I can do something.

I probably don't even need to post this: you know that if you need anything and I'm available, I'll be there.

Now for my vocal support: I'm very glad you're taking up this project again. As others have already noted here, it's an important project - for the whole community, yes, but most importantly, it could help newcomers become more involved if they know the history of the restoration. And, these documentaries bring that history to life.

Sorry Marten I cannot help with anything to do with this project. But I would like to see them all finished. When I found them a few years back I couldn't wait for the next one etc. I was realy dissapointing to see this unfinished valuable project fall short of what it could be. I do hope you get help from this new community.

I know what it is like not to get help and backup, hence why I stay away now. Still love Uru and Cyan, just can't handle the bickering and politics.
