Why yes, I mean you!

I think I've played around here all by myself for long enough now. I also think I might have figured out how things could work around here, and the possible community rules stopped morphing into different possible community rules in my head. Yay?

In short, I want you to come and play. \c/

So, let me know if you want posting access for the comm. And for how long (usually two weeks). You can post general movie posts, like the ones I did for Purple Toast and Little Criminals (for more examples click the tag for 'movie post' in the right hand sidebar), or you can post interviews, articles, pictures and so on.

Like I said in my first post here, I'd like to have (at least) one movie (or TV show) post per week. Let me know if you would like to do one (or more than one) of those, and in which week you would like to do it. Also let me know which movie you want to do. A complete post takes a lot of work and it would be annoying if two people were working on the same movie.
I would like to have one post for every movie and every TV appearance, also one each for Due South, Battlestar Galactica, Twitch City and My Life as a Dog, but if you want to do an extra entry about an episode, feel free to do this as well. Here applies as well, no posts about a particular episode before there isn't a general post about the series.

Like already mentioned above, you can also post other stuff; articles, interviews, but also additional entries about movies. You have a theory about the meaning of Purple Toast? An essay about Hard Core Logo? Set pictures from Whiskey Echo? You are welcome to post here.
I think it would be best to not post anything about a movie or TV show before there is a 'general' entry about it, but I'll make exceptions for Hard Core Logo, Wilby Wonderful and Due South, since they are obviously very well known by, well, everyone.

For now, up to five people can have posting access at the same time. You don't have to do one of the general movie posts. If you want posting access just for interviews and articles and other stuff, that's okay too. But like I said, one movie per week would be nice. You don't need to do it alone, if you want to collaborate with someone, I'd probably be able to find you a partner.

For now the plan looks like this:

Hopefully this table won't stay that empty for long (/c\). As you can see I am heroically volunteering for a post about Viper - The Wheelman. If someone else wants to do this one, by all means, be my guest. This table will only list the movie / tv show posts. Articles / interviews / essays... post them whenever you want.

I will post a template for movie posts tomorrow (now available here), but you don't have to use it. Just make sure that a post contains:

  1. General info (IMDB) like a short plot synopsis, cast, runtime, country, rating, year, awards and so on

  2. Callum quotient

  3. Pictures (not more than 5)


  5. Trivia

  6. Interesting Scenes

  7. Polls about the movie (overall rating, violence, humor, sexual content, sexual violence)

  8. Polls about Callum's character (character, kills, craziness, hotness, queerness)

  9. Does he die? (in white text, so no one gets spoiled)

  10. Articles, interviews (for the bigger movies: not too many, better put them in a different entry)

  11. Links (to posts in other LJs and communities)

  12. Info if the movie is commercially available*

*this last point is an idea by neu111 and still missing in the first two posts. I will update them with that info in the next few days.

Okay, what else?

If you don't want to use the template, but need some help with the coding, let me know. (I have reasons for offering that; for a really long post that's divided into subsections and contains polls and tables and lists, the coding can be a bitch.)

I have pictures for most of Callum's movies here. Feel free to use them. No need to re-upload, just use the gallery. If you have pictures of your own but no webspace to put them, you can use this gallery as well. Just let me know and I'll upload for you. If you don't have pictures at all, let me know, I will be able to provide some.

This is a paid community, so if anyone with a basic account (without the right to post polls) wants to do a movie post I can give you temporary maintainer rights for the community (that is, if I know who you are) and you should be able to post polls here. (Not quite sure what happens with the polls after the maintainer rights are withdrawn. Any ideas? Someone? Anyone? Bueller?)

If you post articles or interviews, only one per post please. Feel free to post fifty interviews if you can find them, but each should get an entry of its own. Of course, check if an article has already been posted.

Naturally, don't volunteer to post about a movie you hate.

To see what movies / shows are still available, check the posting table. *points up*

Okay, I think that's all I have. Questions? Comments? Ideas? Volunteers? :D?

ETA: scriggle also offered the use of her screencaps. And she has a LOT of them. She's also pretty good with tagging her stuff, so you should be able to find everything you might need here.

ETA2: The template is now available here.

Um, I might like to do Last Night? Let me think on when, exactly.

And also: I have fairly large scans of the Take One article "The Tao of Callum Keith Rennie" (which you already posted) and an article about Picture Claire from the same issue, and of course the Elm Street article with Paul, which does mention Callum. Any use for those?
Feb. 25th, 2008 10:54 pm (UTC)



Awesome. Last Night is yours. Let me know when you have decided when you want to do it.

Eeeeeeeeeee! <3

Not sure about the scans... Actually... I think you should post them. Link the "Tao" one to the post with the transcript, and I will do the same with my post. Post the others like they are, maybe we can do transcripts later and link them as well.

That is... about the Elm Street one... I read it at one point, but I don't remember too much? I think if Callum's just mentioned, like, name-dropping, then you probably shouldn't post it. At least not the whole article. Maybe a transcript of the... relevant parts? I mean, nothing against Paul, but this comm is about Callum and... well.

Feb. 25th, 2008 10:57 pm (UTC)
*snugs you*

I can post the Take One scans, for sure.

Callum Quotient may not be high enough in the ES one. He gets a couple (notable) mentions and some pictures. It might be more useful to include the fun bits in with the dS entry?
Feb. 25th, 2008 11:03 pm (UTC)


It might be more useful to include the fun bits in with the dS entry?

*nodsnods* Or just post them as they are, in an extra post. \c/
Feb. 26th, 2008 09:46 am (UTC)
Okay, you have posting access now. Feel free to post the scans. Or whatever you want.
Feb. 29th, 2008 03:22 pm (UTC)
Let me know when you have decided when you want to do it.

Arrite, how do you feel about letting me shoot for the week of March 22? HOWEVER, I am doing the con thing right then, and also have rl stuff happening, so if it gets down to the wire are you going to shoot me if I reschedule for the end of April/beginning of May?

Feb. 29th, 2008 11:53 pm (UTC)
Okay! This week is now ALL YOURS. I will definitely not shoot you if you don't make it after all. Considering that I meant to do Viper this week,and look, it's Friday night (where YOU are, here? not anymore) and I haven't even watched the damn thing again. So, yes, I understand. :)

(But. If you feel better just going for end of April, that's okay too. Honest.)
