Mary told me about
the upcoming reunion and I'm glad to help in any way that
I can. If we are going to produce a reunion DVD I'd like to
start getting the source material together as soon as possible.
You may ask people to send me whatever materials that may
be available and they would like to contribute. I can handle
virtually any type of source material that may come my way.
However, to produce a high quality product a few tips might
be in order.
1. If pictures are scanned, please
scan to a resolution of 300 dpi, save as .jpg with no compression
(if available). Don't worry about the condition of the photo,
I'll go through and restore/correct as necessary.
2. If you are sending
video, please contact me directly for further information
regarding size and proper codec.
3. Audio can be sent in any format,
please use as high quality compression as possible (anything
4. If folks have
source material on VHS or DV I can convert them, also don't
worry about video quality as this can be corrected to a large
5. My bulk email address for large
files is firstname.lastname@example.org. If anyone has a huge file (50meg+)
give me a call and I let them know where to upload.
6. If people just
want to send me their material directly, I'll be glad to scan,
etc. and return the material to them. I'd like to gather as
much source material as we can from as many years as possible,
don't know what is out there, but somebody should have it
tucked away in a shoe box somewhere.It's always better to
have too much material than not enough....
It would be really interesting to
get some comments from key people through the years on audio
discussing their experiences with the corps and use that
as part of the sound track. Any rehersal tapes, judges critiques,
etc. might provide us with some great material.
Any help that you
may provide in gathering material will be greatly appreciated
as I'd like this to be special for everybody involved. I've
attached a copy of something that I've been messing with-
taking the concept of the old Ryder decal and freshening it
up, if we change the text around the outside to reflect the
reunion, it might make an interesting t-shirt. Take a look
and let me know what you think.
Hope all is well with you. Let me
know how I may be of assistance.
