k, thanks in advance for any time you have !  After all, it is the
community's film about itself, which is why I am now focusing on filming
local events.  We have been shooting in narrowing concentric circles, more
or less.  We traveled and just shot everything we could get our hands on,
because we knew we couldn't come back.  But most of the plot will take place
here in the SF Bay Area.

The plot to the film will either be whether we can move one individual
public middle school to FOSS, and why or why not.  Another possible plot is
whether the Felton Tux Takes A Town effort will succeed.  A movie has to be
about characters that the audience cares about.  People care about
children.  They always want to know what is going on with kids (the
school).  And the town of Felton is just small enough that it might be
possible to identify actual characters and follow them and watch the
development of the project there and document it.  Then our footage from
outside the SF Bay Area connects local events and characters with
international trends and big ideas that give substance to the individual
characters and sets them on a global stage.  That is our goal, at any rate,
but we are going to need a lot of people to pull this off.

so thanks for thinking of helping out!  Our biggest need right now is rough
video editing, because we only have 58 hours out of 370 hours loaded to the
Internet Archive's Digital Tipping Point Video Collection (IA DTP VC):


Our keyword search index page is located below.  It is the place to go to
find specific persons or themes for our footage.


The video up on the IA DTP VC is rough edited, but lacks transitions, music,
or special effects.  It is our "source code" that we are sharing with the
world under a Creative Commons Attribute-ShareAlike license.  So just bear
that in mind:  we are giving you the tools to tell your own story in video
and link it up with great minds all over the planet, like, fer instance,
Rick Moen.  heh.  Seriously, we do have footage of Rick grilling steaks.  It
is not up there yet but will be.

see ya
