Basically, install Dropbox (http://www.dropbox.com/) and then set up with movieman's account details. All the pictures and video footages are there. If you need any help, reach out to movieman, George or #1fan as I'd presume they were able to set it up on Windows. I use Ubuntu, so chances are, it's going to look different here.

I'll PM the Dropbox account access.
In case you don't remember, I set up a Drop Box account the same time you did along with Movieman. But thanks, I'll get to it when I can.

I was wondering about that... but thought it was better to put out the info instead of arguing about what was discussed before.

Oh bollocks... how funny. I posted the date as November 15 not realizing I'm a day ahead than you guys. DUH! Well, I have my Skype account online and accommodate any of you who pop up.

Ok, I have no idea what is going on with my internet connection and skype. The gray circles indicating it's waiting to send the messages kept going. I'll get back online tomorrow at around the same time from a more stable connection. I have no clue what is going on.

I'll have some direction written down to plan out the transitions with Movieman and I, since he's going to be shooting very soon.

Also, I'll bring up some ideas for Anita to draw up for the transition frames.

ATTN: Movieman and #1fan:

NothingbutM during the meeting raised some concerns over the transitions between his scenes and movieman's. As a test requirement, he and movieman should provide temp footage so that #1fan can apply the scene transition ideas from NothingbutM. NothingbutM had intermittent connectivity and we weren't able to get around to describing what his ideas were. I'm sure he'll either post his ideas or send it over to me hopefully soon.

Skype is still online for whoever can make it (while I'm online).

I am sorry I missed. I had a pretty big family emergency today. My mother had to go to the hospital because of something in her stomach lining. I had to drive her every where. I know I said I would be there....

No problem. Although you can still join right now. PM me your skype account.

I just missed it. Had a drivers lesson.
What was the time that you met? I could not find it anywere. Maybe I could have joined a part before driving.

WE PULL BACK as David blends in with dozens and dozens of ordinary people, walking on an ordinary street, in an ordinary city.

Should I just shoot what I plan the first shots of my scenes to look like? NothinbutM can maybe shoot the last shots from the beginning and we can see how the transition looks? Maybe the same with the ending transition back to his segments?

We can discuss the details of what we plan to shoot specifically on skype before we shoot them?

Also another possible shot I was thinking about with using a shot from Nothingbutm, but I could ask more about that during a skype session as well. Sorry, I was way asleep by that time last night.
