Are you interested in seeing The Great Tree's Prologue Documentary project completed, bringing the story of Uru Prologue to life for future and past explorers to experience?

This is a poll to determine the viability of resuming a video project related to the storyline of Uru Live.

+++ Clarification 27-Jun-2010: The first item in the poll should say "script editor", not just "editor". +++

is a set of video episodes that recreate the drama and story from Uru Live Prologue, originally conceived as a way to introduce D'mala and Myst Online players to the history they had missed. Eight of twelve proposed episodes were complete when I shelved the project in January 2008 in response to the announcement that Myst Online: Uru Live would be shutting down. Until now, I have had neither the energy nor the opportunity to resume the project.

The response to the project when it was active was phenomenal; many participants in Myst Online showed up to the announced filming sessions to help make these videos a reality. It is truly a community project - although it takes just one person to put the videos together, the video project needs script editors*, translators, and most of all, actors who can play the parts of important persons who may not be here today to reprise their past roles.

The eight videos that were completed are still available at http://rel.to/prologue . If you have never heard of this project before, I ask you to please take a look at what has already been done before voting. I need to know if people are interested in seeing this project resumed to completion. It takes 1 to 1.5 months to produce an episode, so if I were to resume work now, it would probably take until the year's end to complete. My availability to work on the project will likely fluctuate, but if I commit to finish, I will stay on it to the end. If resumed, video filming will usually take place on weekends when it is easiest to draw a crowd, although there may be some scenes requiring just a few participants that might be filmed at other hours. Filming opportunities would be announced in the subforum, the , and the . Completed videos would be announced in the subforum.

In addition to the main poll, I am also curious how many people responding have/haven't heard of the Prologue project before, so in replying I would appreciate a show of hands.

I was - and still am - impressed with the videos so far, so I definitely would like to see the project continued and some day completed. There's so much backstory to Uru that newcomers probably aren't even aware of - mainly because it's scattered all around the Internet, and difficult to find if you don't know where to look. (This is also why I'd like to see the updated.) I completely missed out on Prologue and UU, and the first few months of the GameTap version. The videos so far have helped me to catch up.

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.

I wasn't around for prologue but watched these videos quite some time ago and just watched the complete set so far and I would like to see this project completed.

Yay!!! You have my complete support Marten!
It would really be awesome to complete the Prologue Documentaries!
And, as before, I'm available as Italian Translator for the videos. :D
