This is the level of endeavor to which I'd like to see Rituallab experiments rise.

The one thing we have not done is made the commitment to devote the time. What steps can we take to move from pursuit to accomplishment?!

Forgive a tangential half-formed idea:

Akin to the Bloody Omaha vid, LabRats create a "making of" documentary about RitualLab's first feature length movie. The 5 minute short offers glimpses into what clearly was the epic production of an equally epic film. Scenes of the ostensibly "real" production include interviews with cast and crew, "on set" footage of elaborately costumed or bloodied actors, green screen work, set construction, as well as narrator commentary of the record-breaking scope. ["Scope", incidentally, is a movable variable here -- the content & concept of the "film" should reign.]

Perhaps we could leverage buzz to garner financial support for actual execution ...

The level of execution weighed against the tools/ resources used to produce makes it an even more amazing feat.

I also offer up this. A experimental method of storytelling where image capture is directly related to the "users" heartrate. A faster bpm results in more frequent image capture. And the site / story is engaging as well.

Mayhaps in lieu of a successful "making of" commentary, the short veers into a partially obscured recollection of some other (tragic/unfortunate) event that prevented the movie from being released: death or physical/mental disappearance of a cast member, dissolution of cast due to lack of acceptable craft service, etc.

I think you meant in addition to a successful "making of" commentary ...

I notice that none of you has used the word "awesome" yet.

That clip was ... wait for it ... awesome.

Especially as illustration of a Jensenian idea of which I'm especially fond; namely that, properly crafted, a tip of the iceberg can look like the whole damn thing.

Maybe a round of layer tennis is in order to get the juices flowing?
