How Far We've Come - DOWNLOAD VERSION INFO!
Clois fans!! It's time! I finally finished the final version of "How Far We've Come!" Yep, that's right. Everything from Crusade to Pandora, all in one big and glorious video. It's almost like a beautiful, epic 5 hour movie all about our favorite couple! I actually added a few MORE clips to it as well, so it's a little bit bigger than originally thought. It started out at 4 hours long, now it is over 5 ... 5 hours and 11 minutes, to be precise!
So here is my big question ...
Is anyone interested in a downloadable version of it? I'm rendering the file now and I'm trying to see how much I can compress it. May end up having to make it into zip files, not sure. Either way, it will be huge ... over 1GB, unless I can manage to convert it and get it down to a smaller size somehow (if anyone has good suggestions for this please let me know).
I am very willing to make this available to my fellow Clois fans, because YOU are the reason why I started this project to begin with. It kills me that I can't share the entire thing on YouTube.
I won't bother spending more hours uploading it unless people really want it, though. So if you are interested, PLEASE let me know! Think of it as my Christmas present to you all. ;)
I don't plan to post the link publicly because I don't want someone snagging it and trying to take credit for it somewhere down the line. Of course I don't expect anyone HERE to do that, I hope that's a given ... but there are always lurkers and it is THOSE people I worry about. I have literally put dozens and dozens of hours into this ... and with all the despicable video theft that has been occurring in the online community lately, I really don't want my hard work to be stolen. I'm sure you all understand.
In short - if you want a download link - please send me your e-mail address. You can e-mail me at supergem3[at]gmail.com (replace [at] with @) or DM me on Twitter if we're friends (I'm EquusFemina). Please be sure to put "How Far We've Come" in the subject line so I don't overlook or accidentally delete your message. Include your name, online nickname (if applicable, so I recognize you) and your e-mail address. I'll make a list and I'll get the link out to you all via e-mail once I have it uploaded!
I'd appreciate it if, once I do this, you guys don't share the links amongst yourselves, or post the link somewhere for anyone to find on the net. If I find out that the link has been distributed to people I don't know I'll just delete the link and then, unfortunately, everyone will lose. Sorry for being anal about it, but like I said ... and as I'm sure most of you are aware ... a lot of video theft has occurred and this is the one project I REALLY don't want to have stolen by some random person.
As for my "At the Beginning" Music Video that YouTube won't allow, I'm working on finishing that as well. Some of you may have noticed the preview clip from it that I uploaded last week, and if you have you know that it is blocked by YouTube. So it will also be a downloadable file. I'll post more here about it once it's complete.
Thanks again for the support, feedback and everything! I hope many of you will contact me soon about the download link, and I REALLY hope you'll enjoy the finished project once you get a chance to see it. In the meantime, Happy Holidays to all! :)
