Help Me Out With My Project...

Well, I've mentioned for a while here that I do video work, but have never had a chance to show anyone anything. However, if you have ever wanted to see what kind of stuff I've done before, here's your chance.

1) First, download my film at the following link:

http://www.xeidon.com/beta/opera_beta.rar

It is a 269 MB file, so, unfortunately, if you are on a slower connection, this probably means that you cannot view it.

2) Extract the RAR file to reveal an AVI video file. If you cannot double-click the file to open it, please install the following program, depending on your computer platform:

PC: WinRAR - http://www.rarlab.com/rar/wrar34b3.exe
Mac OS X: Stuffit Expander - http://www.download.com/Stuffit-Stan...ml?tag=lst-0-2
Mac OS 8.x/9.x: Stuffit Expander (Classic) - http://www.download.com/Stuffit-Stan...ml?tag=lst-0-3

Each file isn't that large, and none of them have adware or spyware (I'm very conscious of that!).

3) If you double-click the AVI video file and it doesn't seem work, please install the following video codec:

3ivx: http://www.3ivx.com/download/index.html

Again, it isn't too large of a file, and there's no adware or spyware. Once you install it, you should be able to view the AVI file in any number of standard video player software, such as Quicktime, Windows Media Player, Winamp, or anything else you might have.

4) Take the evaluation survey, which is completely and 100% anonymous:

http://www.zoomerang.com/recipient/s...p=WEB2P4NVR5GF

Please be as honest as possible, as I will not be able to tell who is answering (and it isn't as if negative responses will make me hate you anyway!).

If you have the time and a broadband connection, I would greatly appreciate if you could take the time to do this, and the survey is the most important part of it. If you download the video, *PLEASE* take the survey. It's a required portion of my project. It isn't too difficult...I promise!

Thank you, and if you have any general questions regarding the survey, please ask them. If you have any questions about the movie, PM me after you've taken the survey; don't put them in here.

Thanks again!

Melon

I want to make an extra emphasis on a point. Many people get discouraged when they open up an AVI file and get a black screen or an error message. That means you need to download the 3ivx codec:

http://www.3ivx.com/download/index.html

Apologies for any inconvenience, but this is the only way I could make a file that was not really big (as in 1 GB or more) or really crappy quality to make a small file. I also was not about to use DivX (for those who know about this more popular third-party AVI format), because the program is bundled with spyware. I would never ask people to install that, out of principle.

Thanks again...

Thanks to everyone who has watched and filled out the survey, thus far. If you've seen the movie and haven't done or completed the survey, please do so! I really really need your help on that.

Also, if anyone else could watch it and fill out the survey, you would get my utmost appreciation! Thanks again!

I downloaded it but didn't have the time to watch it yet. I'll check it out next week, I hope the survey will still be open then.
