It seems that there are a lot of users out there who wish to be part of a muvivu community collaborative movie. So with this in mind, I have been wondering what features (if any) would help to encourage others or to enable this to happen?

Here's a little idea..


At the moment this is what happens:
You have an idea for a movie, but you want it to be a collaborative effort. So you post your request on the forum and hope that someone comes to the rescue.


This is what could happen:
You have an idea for a movie, but you want it to be a collaborative effort. So you create a "Movie pitch" post detailing the movie idea, timescale you would like to see it done by or whatever piece of information you think someone would need to know who may want to be part your movie. Also in a movie pitch post there would be a "casting" feature.


An individual who wants to join the cast of your movie would click on a "cast me" button within the post and by doing so would be added to a list along with anyone else who has clicked on the same button. in addition to being on the list, a person would have at the bottom of their posts (in every thread they post in) an icon (possibly a star) which signifies that they are part of a collaborative movie .A forum member with two, three or more collaborative movies on the go would have two, three or more stars at the bottom of their posts and if someone clicks on a particular star it would link straight to the "movie pitch" post showing the curious star clicker what film they are involved with. Every star would link to the specific movie pitch post which earned the forum member the particular star.


what do you think? fancy being star struck?

Hi Dreeko, Sounds like a good idea, I have also been thinking about our assets on our profile pages.
I think they should have a locking system where you can lock down your assets, and can only be browsed
by people involved in the project, or by your chosen friends.
I say this because I think our community are a very creative bunch, and I think there will be a lot of prying
eyes out there looking for and stealing our stuff naughty
I might seem paranoid, but I'd hate to see our hard earned work, scripts, sounds, and ideas stolen.
Honestly, you'll be surprised how many computer Wizkids are out there with no imagination.
Anyway, I would like to help in any project, but we need to lock down our assets first.Drink

A way of sharing assets privately between collaborators is something which would be fantastic for many reasons. perhaps a joint account option would be a direction preferred..

Yeah, something like that, or just an option where you could just click on your special friendsBuddies
and BINGO, your assets are locked to them only.Police

I think this could be solved (to an extent) simply by setting up a new user for each collaboration and sharing the password between the members and then everything can be uploaded privately.
Thanks

Hi Dreeko,

What you are describing is more or less exactly how our original webite worked!
We used to have a project based-system where you could assign various tasks to members. Clearly there is a lot of interest now in this collaborative way of working, so possibly it is something we might need to revert to, although that wouldn't be my call.
