After a year of trying to work w/ volunteer editors, we got nowhere. The main volunteer had the footage for almost a year and didn't work on it because his paying jobs took precidence. We're trying to raise funds to where we can secure an editor to actually work on and finish this amazing, historical documentary that so many wonderful people around the planet have participated in.
For those advising me to consider kickstarter.com, I have looked into it, but the "all or nothing" timeline rule is a gamble. Should we be unable to come up w/ sufficient funding to get an editor secured, I will consider kickstarter again.
We've decided to re-open contributions, especially for the newcomers and attendees at #STS135. Tell us how you feel abut NASA, space vs. earth sciences, if you feel NASA is a waste of money or a good investment, etc. Your opinion is valid and we'd like to hear it. Camera shy? Take a look at other people who did self-interviews and you can see it's casual and fun.
Many people expressed interest after the deadline passed, so here's your privilege to participate again: As re-searcher, Animator, Musician, Voice Over, writers, interviewer, or donations. There are opportunities to contribute all over the website. Check them out and pick one that appeals to you. Share your opinion with the world. This film is being made to give those w/ a love for space a voice. It is also open to take comments from people who are against nasa space and earth sciences. It will be as balanced a film as we can make. All opinions treated with respect.
The things we need the most:
Man on the Street type interviews are always desired. If you would like to do Walkup Man on the Street type interviews, here is the downloadable kit that easily makes you ready to print and go.
Self-interviews are fun, easy and great. Feel free to involve your family.
Fundraising among friends, co-workers, school mates, family and even door to door is very much needed. If you wish to do event fundraising, download the Fundraising kit, print it and you're ready to roll. Join us and help us make history.

We need more interviews, definitely more international interviews, and more graphics & animations. We've decided to keep re-open contributions for those who wished to contribute but weren't yet able to. Many people expressed interest after the deadline passed, so here's your privilege to participate: As reesearcher, Animator, Musician, Voice Over, writers, interviewer, or funders. Don't have time, equipment or skills? Donate. Help us offset the costs of the project we are incurring daily. We are making it completely out of pocket and this film is not cheap. We know times are difficult, yet $5 from everyone would make a serious difference. You will receive recognition on the website.

High 5: Laone Tina Collins, Director of Unanimous
May 28th, 2010 - By Elizabeth Howell
Every week, Pars3c profiles an interesting person with connections in the space field. This time it’s Laone Tina Collins (@Oceanchick99), a documentary filmmaker working on the first crowdsourced movie about space. It’s calledUnaminous.
As Collins tells Pars3c, space is a prime environment to bring out international co-operation. But that’s not to say things are always rosy when working in space, or working on a movie.
PS: There is already some great discussion going on on the PARS3C site, head on over there!

If you are currently working on a project for Unanimous, please try to submit the finished project by May 15. If you are working on anything video related, uploading instructions are available here. If you are working on music, animation, research, footage gathering or other specialty projects, please get the projects emailed or snail-mailed to me by May 15.
There is still time for you to record yourself for the “self-interview” project. All you need is a webcam/mic or videocam and an opinion! It only takes a few minutes for a basic self-interview.

I never imagined mysef to be in the position that I am in now when I won a slot in the STS-129 NASA Tweetup. I interviewed a man in space today. A year ago I would never have imagined that could have happened. Yet, here I am, making a social media based collaborative documentary with people from around the world contributing self-interviews, animations, video clips, music, graphics, and more…AND I interviewed a man in space today. I am very blessed to have met and worked with so many of you, and I appreciate everyone who has contributed and supported me in this endeavor.

Spring is on the way, so many of us are coming out of hibernation. The change in season and days of sun has had a positive effect on my energy levels and general situation.
General reminder to those who have volunteered on projects, PLEASE complete them or PLEASE have the courtesy to let me know that you cannot finish them asap so that I can attempt to reassign. It is very very important because I am on a very tight deadline with my editor and delays or abandoned projects royally screw with that timeline. I trust my volunteers to be honest with me and themselves, enough said.
I’m up to my knees in the frankfilm homage sequence clippings. I’ve gone through two pairs of scissors and my hand definitely needs a break from all the cutting and clipping. My special background papers came today and as soon as my re-stickable glue arrives, I’ll be ready to start on some basic filming for the sequence. I’m very much looking forward to it. It’s my “creative” segment of the documentary.
My in-flight interview with @Astro_TJ, TJ Creamer, a Nasa astronaut onboard the ISS has been rescheduled for April 20. I am very excited about getting this interview regardless of the push-back. Gives me more time to work on questions.
If anyone has any connection with people at ESA or JAXA, I would love an interview with a few of them. Please message me so that I can work that out. Self interviews are also possible with them if they aren’t able to give time for a standard interview.
Above and Beyond Kudos
Special thanks to @TinyPearlCat for helping me collect images for the frankfilm homage sequence. Her first packet was astoundingly helpful, not to mention the special early years of Nasa stuff she included. She went above and beyond, and I am truly grateful.
Special thanks to @ZippyG2 for his continual help and completion on every research aspect he’s been asked to do. He recently completed a very time intensive project and has accepted another. His dedication has helped me many times when I have become frustrated, and I am so very thankful for someone who I can rely on to follow through with anything that is asked. Glenn, “Chief” thanks and appreciates you.
Special thanks to @bph who continues to update and make changes to the website keeping it up to date on newsworthy notes and for the work she has done behind the scenes making things happen. This lady is unstoppable and I am blessed to have her on my team.
It’s Not Too Late to Contribute
There are many ways to contribute to Unanimous. You can interview yourself, others, help out on research, record yourself talking about how space news is covered in your country/region, provide special skills (animation, photoshop, music) and more! Take a moment to read through the site and find a project you would like to do. Toss me a line on twitter to @Oceanchick99 and let me know. Everyone is welcome to participate, and reliable volunteers are greatly needed. Deadline for new volunteers to complete projects is March 30. Vimeo transfer will speed up receipt of interviews.

Things are really starting to roll with the documentary. The downstairs smell has dissipated so we are re-hooking equipment and getting things back where they belong. The narrative is flowing well, and I am getting close to the point of testing the best way to do a voice-over. I’m hoping FCP’s built-in application will work. Now I need to figure out what accent I want to use! (j/k)
