Greetings CL! This is one of your most forgetable sons (by choice) speaking. I bring you all a proposition today, and if you read the title you pretty much already figured out what it is. Clever you. This is in fact a proposition for a project I've had in mind for a while, it didn't originate this way, it actually started as more of a solo project, but I think that some things work better with a community, especially ideas that require creative work.
Wait wait, before you start. What is abridging?
Well, if you don't know, abridging is, putting it simply, shortening and satirizing something, popularly it has been done with anime series, and I'd like to do the same with the help of many CL'ers.
So, what is this idea exactly?
Simple, it's to create a team, an abridging team, branching from voice actors, and writters to editors and just plain enthusiasts. I wish to make this a project that can get the widest variety of people on board, each with their own skills and ideas. And for that I've left the future of this wide open, meaning I don't have a specific series that I wish to abridge, this way the group could choose one that would fit everybody's preference and needs.
Okay, so what do you need?
People, that's what I want the most, and lots of them, I really want to make this a community thing, so I want to get a bunch of people. I don't specifically need Voice Actors or Editors, I need, no, I want every kind of help, if you can't edit, or do voice work, but you have some cool ideas, you can be part of the creative team, or if you can't write or do anything that I just mentioned, heck, your support is also very helpfull. I want to make this a huge project!
So wait, if I got it straight, you have basically no clue where you're going with this, do you?
Well, yes and no. I mean, I do know I want to create a project that would belong to all of CL in various levels. I know I'd like for the finished product to be put on the CL Youtube channel, if I was allowed. And I also know that I need your support to get this going, because, well, you could be a future member. But I don't know what series we would do, although judging the fact that this is CL you'd all probably like a Durarara Abridged series, it all depends on how this team will end up like. And it's true that I don't know if I'll get any support to begin with, but, like I said, this is a proposition, not something being developed at all, unless you count me being here begging attention for the project as a step of developing. Anyway, I'd really REALLY like to know what is the community's take on the idea, and would love to get you all backing me up!
Okay, say I'd like to join, what do I do?
Just post it on the thread, saying you'd like to help, be it with acting, editing, writting, or just plain ideas, anything is welcome. And if you're the shy type a PM will do. So, please go ahead and tell me what you think.
