It was driven home to me this week when Kirok L'Stok pointed me to a major animation I had missed entirely... one which was started in 2006. It's not that I'm truly surprised, I knew perfectly well there are, and were, websites I had not searched. But the number of successes is even more startling when you see how many fail for each one which succeeds.
I removed four more Fan Film Makers With No Fan Films from active to hold or abandon status today. All had shown no activity in a year or more, and two had websites that had been down for over a month and whose former addresses were now available. Another had shown no activity since 2007, and no progress since 2005. I also marked several others for possible removal in a few months. In films, at least ten try for every success. It looks like on my one year anniversay in early June, I will have followed just two would-be filmmakers who actually made new films, and eliminated well over 20 that had abandon their projects.
Thank you for your wonderful efforts.
I know that there are some who feel my listing of dramatic film projects only, with a focus only on non-comedy, non-parody which are in excess of 10 minutes, tell an entire story, and are not crossovers, porn, or music videos, is not a broad enough listing. Let me invite anyone who wants to create a broader listing to use mine as part of the basis on which your broader listing can be created. However, doing what I am already doing is either more than I can handle or all I can handle. I mean no disrespect to the other creative talents in the Trek community.
