I like Friends as the song, too.
And a deadline is definitely important!
How long do you think it would take to put it together, Janet?

Considering the guys are off to Kenya, we can assume they wont be able to watch it....
Maybe if we get it to them soon after they come back home? Sort of a Welcome Back/We're Proud Of You/We Love You/Thank You thing?

If we would be able to time it so that they get it sometime between coming back from Kenya and setting off on the summer tour, it would be perfect!

This is an awesome idea! It would be so much fun to do. On the subject of how they've brought people together, and the friendships that have developed, we could maybe throw in some pictures of us at their shows, labelled with where we've come from (thinking like when Val BC, Amanda ON and Me NV met up in AB for Drenched). Also screencaps of things like the 'Yes' chart where Hedley were #1 and we were all over the site's 'most active users' (IF the file's not already too big from people's video/picture messages of course. Haha) .. the possibilities are endless!

And it goes without saying I'd LOVE to help out Janet!! :D

The more I think about this idea, the more I like it, Jossi.

Twice now, Nik and I have gathered personal messages from the forumers and with the help of others waiting in line have written every message on huge greeting cards (once at the end of the tour in 2008 and the other one was for Chris when he was sick). Doing a video with everyone's faces & messages though ...

I have no problems putting it together and sending it to Management on behalf of the entire Forum. They could play it for the guys when they all get together for one of their meetings.

If you did a short video, it'd have to be no more than 15 seconds - I know it's not a lot of time but if there's a lot of submissions, this whole video could get too big. This would be a very personal thank you to the guys for everything they do and have given us.

Ideas? What does everyone think? Yes? No?

ps: any band lurkers, please ignore this post and pretend it's a surprise if/when the video arrives in Vancouver. 8-)

Thanks :)

Personally i think that first we have like a couple of days/a week for forumers to tell if they want to be a part of the video and then we can see how we have to split up the time for each one! and then a week or two to make your video/picture!

Great ideas, Jan. I really need to get thinking about my submission myself. LOL I've no idea what to do/use.

As for a deadline, I like the idea of having the video in Vancouver for the guys return. Tom's tweet said "a couple of weeks" - hopefully we'll get something definite from Management in the next day or so. Definitely want them to have it before they hit the road at the end of June. It won't take me long to put it together and I'll start as soon as pics/vids start coming in; that way I can plop in any last minute submissions. What if we say all items have to be submitted by Friday, June 18th? That way I can put it together on the weekend and send it out on the 21st -- that gives 4 weeks for people to get their pictures/videos in. Will that work?

Soo, June 18th.... that's good. Gives me plenty of time to think of something good to squish into a short video clip!

We should probably also think about the best format for videos to be in - you know, like mpeg, wmv etc. I have converters which will handle most things, but it'll save Janet a lot of time if as many people as possible can send them in, in the same format.

Oh, good point, jan.

I'll be using the Windows program -- haha, the name of it escapes me right now :oops: - it seems to accept a number of different formats.

You can either email me the pictures/videos or upload them and send me the link(s).
