(Below, we’ve updated our original “call for transcribers” post from a few months back to reflect our current status and some big news – out trailer is done, and because of some key positive responses, we’ve got a good chance to send this film to Sundance. To do this, WE STILL NEED NEW TRANSCRIBERS, now more than ever…and now we can PAY you if you sign up for at least 3 tapes per week. Can you help us get to Sundance? Send me a note firstname.lastname@example.org.) Here’s the updated post:
Were making great progress on our transcription project tackling a mountain of 500 hours (19,000 clips) from our year-long road trip but we still need more help! We currently have 40 people signed up to help, but were looking for 60 more people to lend a hand — for a total of 100. Thats right. 100. This is a big job it takes about 4 hours to transcribe one hour of footage, so were looking at about 2000 people hours to get this footage prepped for the editing process!
And to get this thing to Sundance, we need to finish by the second week of July!
With 100 people on board, each can contribute a very reasonable 8-10 hours per week and well cross the finish line on time. By logging all of these clips quickly, we can make the Sundance deadline, and get this film out to the general public soon and in a big way and we all know that our lovely planet doesnt have days to spare.
Think about it: When was the last time you could powerfully help the planet by sitting down to watch a video?? Now you can. Seize the moment and watch a clip for the planet. For more information about volunteering, please contact Mark Dixon at 415-672-5537, or email@example.com. Well chat for about 30 minutes and then get you logging ASAP!
Thanks for all of your support! Were thrilled with every little bit of it and want to be sure you know that this project would not be possible without your continued support, both verbal and financial.
