Hey party people!

Getting excited for WisCon Vid Party? We're 10 days away! WOOOOOOOO!!!! We have some pretty spectacular Premieres and Playlists all queued and ready to go. We just have ONE. MORE. THING--

SUBTITLES! Subtitles mean that more folks can enjoy Vid Party. We really wanted to get as many vids subtitled this year as possible, and that means we need volunteers!

If you have never made a subtitle file before -- thats ok! We have a couple excellent tutorials on how to make SRT files (subtitles) that we can play along with each vid.

If you are willing to help make subtitles, please reply here with a good email to contact you (comments are screened) and I will send you a playlist to subtitle! Try subtitling one vid a day and we'll be all set for the party, a week from Saturday. We would prefer folks to sign on for a full playlist (4-7 vids), but if you can only take on 1,2 or 3, we'd still appreciate the help.

Thanks!

ETA: OK NOW COMMENTS ARE SCREENED. OOPS.

Hi everyone,

We are in need of a handful of volunteers for two activities which need to happen over the next few weeks, before Wiscon.

1. Permission wrangling

We try to contact vidders and get their permission to use their vids for our party. Your job, if you are up for it, is to leave comments on vidders' DW/LJ/etc, telling them about the vid party and checking that it's OK for us to show their vid. We'll provide a "form letter" that you can cut and paste, so you don't have to come up with your own words. When they respond, you update our spreadsheet to say you've got permission.

You will need: DW and LJ accounts (or OpenID login), access to Google spreadsheets
Your time commitment: 1 hour or more

2. Subtitling

This year we're having a "singalong" show at which the vids will be subtitled. We're going to contact the vidders and ask them either to submit subtitle files OR grant permission for us to create the subtitles on their behalf. If they want us to create the subtitles, that's where you come in. You'll be given instructions, but in short, it's a text file with a certain format which is pretty easy to create.

You will need: VLC or other vid playing software that supports subtitles, any text editing software
Your time commitment: about 1 hour per vid you subtitle

You don't need to be attending to volunteer. This is something that anyone can do, whether they're attending Wiscon or not. So if you'd like to support the Wiscon Vid Party in a way that's purely online, this is a great opportunity.

If you'd like to help out with either of these jobs, please leave us a comment below, in the following format:

Email: (your email address -- or let us know if you prefer to PM it to us)
Permission-seeking: Y/N
Subtitling: Y/N
How many hours can you volunteer? (1 or more)

Neither [personal profile] were_duck nor I are active on LJ any more. Is anyone here active over there, and could help us out with some outreach, such as cross-posting announcements to the [livejournal.com profile] wiscon and [livejournal.com profile] vidding communities?
