Why Are All Theses Posts So Freaking Long?
Why am I bothering to write such excessively detailed notes?
1) Self preservation.
This may look like the nonsensical ramblings of a lunatic mind in the early stages of this production. But later, all of the ideas and plans will all be openly laid out. If the powers that be try to stop me or distort my message or even decide to assassinate/"suicide" me in some undignified staged scandalous scenario, at least the work and message can be continued. The last thing I want is to have a grand vision and be taken out before it can shared or gain traction. This is the tedious foundation for greater things.
Should I die before this finishes, then I automatically FLOSS open source it all. Should I be imprisoned for some nonsense in my "fair" Canada, then I leave stewardship in the hands of magnora7 and d3rr and if there's ever any question about my philosophical views, then refer to James Corbett, Truthstream Media, and ReallyGracefull's work as well as Tim Kelly (but without Catholic judgment on alternative lifestyles, like LGB or Burning Man. Trans folks are fine but their SJW agenda is not, IMHO.)
Online communication is far more difficult than in person in a studio. I hope to leave little room for confusion.
If we're going to make outrageous claims and inspire revolutionary thoughts outside the boxes and prisons of our minds we're going to need some solid logic and supportive precedents. Hammering out these issues first may minimize problems later.
All the pages are 100% public. I will update some of them from time to time. I don't know if or how they may be backed up but by the time it actually matters I suspect they will be. Maybe there'll be a way to view past versions of a post/page/article, just as with wiki histories. In any case you'll be able to see when and where I make adjustments, hopefully with explanations where necessary, and you'll be able to see if these projects ever get corrupted, or sold out to...
Investments, donations, gifts, etc. from generous like-minded people and A.I.'s should already know what they are supporting. Therefore, it's extremely unlikely that I'll be "selling out" and changing course. Simultaneously this is a business plan and road map of sorts. If anyone does wish to invest significantly, they should consider helping develop the Glossed And Profound production management project where all finances will be transparently managed, monitored, and how to make proposals for investments for returns and what to expect, etc. Full disclosure, I'm no business expert nor manager. I have no system but I know what I want - a fair and transparent democratic system to minimize getting screwed over for all parties involved.
Lastly, I make no guarantees. I have no support team of lawyers, accountants, animators, etc. I'll do my best and hope my modest Canadian disability will be sustainable and hope my life remains healthy long enough to accomplish these goals. I've failed dear people in the past and it tears me up inside. These are my last 2 big projects. If I should be lucky enough to finish them, all others will be bonus but none as important.
6) Edification and example.
Perhaps others will learn the process, be inspired to emulate, ideally improve these templates, and learn from my mistakes - or even reject this whole hot mess. Feedback along the way may help correct course and hopefully all this open planning will work out for the best. Unlike war, planning works for productions and you can never have too much (unless you have a tight budget or schedule).
Who knows, maybe Hollywood might take notice of my relatively simple rules for writing and try to apply some of them to their plots, acts, scenes, and characters to make more compelling movies, even if still meaningless distractions.
These grandiose open plans and technical insights may be good fodder for tutorial videos, a how-to manual, or making-of book. I'm not expecting this project or these supplements to be as well received nor as lengthy as The Lord Of The Rings Extended Version with all of the behind the scenes stuff. But some people really do want to learn more about the process, whether they're professional filmmakers or not. This also applies to the 3) Veracity.
7) Much more to come.
You haven't seen anything yet. A screenplay is 100 pages for 100 minutes. Both the BsS and T101 aim to be feature length projects. Further, BsS will have copious technical, world-building, and philosophical notes to clarify concepts on very different content than most are used to. Meanwhile, as an animation production, T101 will have an abundance of technical issues and detailing too.
8) These are the project bibles.
To properly write a Star Trek episode you need to abide by the established historical precedent and rules of their universe. Every show has something like a show bible, guide, or at very least a summary of what's gone before. I'm hoping good writers will familiarize themselves with these notes to absorb the goals and submit content. I'd even welcome rewrites of all these notes if anyone can improve them.
Obviously I verbosely overwritesly oh too muchly.
10) Your good reasons.
If you have good reasons, share them. If I like them I'll add them.
