  • ATTENTION! ALL USERS PLEASE READ! Werelist Documentary Project!

    Spoilers: This was our April Fools joke for 2016

    As many of you are aware, there is a growing demand in the therian community for a community-run documentary project. Major motivations for such a project include the desires to educate the public, to counter bad media presentations, and to ultimately have greater control over the public “face” of therianthropy.

    To this end, the Werelist staff have worked behind the scenes for a while, and we are pleased to announce the ‘List’s official involvement with the production of the first community-controlled documentary.The History Channel has contacted us with interest in documenting therianthropy academically, with focus on correcting misinformation and presenting a more professional side of the community. Therian community involvement is to take place on all levels from casting, to production, and even, crucially, to editing, with Werelist staff and members having ultimate veto power over the information presented. Because of the level of control afforded to the community with this project, Werelist staff have made an exception to our usual policy regarding media recruitment.

    This project is still early in its production, and more information will be made available to the ‘List as things progress. Production will not jeopardize anyone’s privacy here – involvement is on a volunteer basis only, as it has been with the therianthropy talks and presentations we’ve participated in in the past.
    Please consider volunteering for any of the following:

    - Casting (we desperately need well-spoken and professional folks to appear on camera and present the community in a positive way)

    - Q&A - similar to other Q&As on Werelist. If you’re uncomfortable going on camera, you can still participate in a Q&A. These are most likely to be audio recordings with quotes to be used here and there in the production. However, some typed responses may be used (though consider a vocal actor may be used to read your quotation. You may also opt to be played by an actor available to the network.). The idea is to have as many different participants and “voices” of the community as possible.

    - Polls – As of yet, we don’t know what kind of data will be gathered for the film. Any polls whose data will be used will be clearly marked. Please consider participating in these – the more data we can gather, the better.
    Other needs may come up as production continues. We will keep you informed. Let us know if you have any questions, and if you would like to volunteer for anything mentioned so far, say so here and we will start a potential list.

    This project represents an exciting breakthrough in the community. Hopefully you’re all as excited as we are to have the opportunity to combat the exploitative media coverage the community has received thusfar. With this film, we hope to both correct misinformation and spark more academic, informed interest in therianthropy.

    ~ The Werelist HelpStaff

    ADDENDUM! This just in! We have secured actors for the Werelist staff, who have declined to appear due to fear of governmental testing.

    Savage will be played by Dom Cruz.

    Jakkal will be played by this ferocious and intimidating boop-a-snoot.

      Great, are you willing to appear on camera on The History Channel? Some participants may be interviewed by one of their commentators, George Tsoukalos, if they consent to participation.

      Though I must add- if this is over video, I'll need to be careful. Maybe do the video in a place where I know I won't get caught and questioned. People around here love to question me when they see me making videos, the last thing they need to know is that I'm here. I could still do it, though.

      Wow, I never thought something like this could happen. I hope it works out as planned. I wish it wasn't the ancient aliens guy though.

      Anyway, I'll do a Q&A. I might want to provide text only, but I'm not sure. If there's an actor available who can read my answers in an androgynous voice I'll go for that.

      *considers time zones and dates* wait a minute, is this real? The History Channel and George Tsoukalos taking something seriously?

      I miss the days when Savage would turn into a fluffy grand high poobah and fart rainbows.

      I'm crossing my fingers here that this is not the case. It was an immediate thought for me right after posting my previous reaponse.

      I'm not so eager to appear in front of a camera, although would love to assist you wherever I can.
      Let me know if I can help.
      Also interested in supporting larger projects like these.

      Darn, I can't participate because my dog side is scared of cameras. I also need more time to obsessively collect border collie stuff and learn to p shift before I can accurately represent the community as a whole. (This is an April Fool's thing, right?)

      That sounds great. I will put you immediately in touch with George Tsoukalos so he can get your interview.

      Excellent. If you can learn to do that before the end of the day, the folks from National Geographic say that they are also interested. I told them that George Tsoukalos does much better science, though.

      I asked Tom Cruise if he would do that while playing me in this upcoming History Channel documentary, but he said that wasn't what real thetans did. I think he might be a little confused about the subject matter, though. I don't think I'll disillusion him since he seemed so enthusiastic to be participating with thetans.

      There's no reason to start unfounded rumors. No one ever said anything about Savage's ability or inability to fart rainbows. Though I hear Savage is branching out and trying to reach the invisible-to-stupid-humans color spectrum.

      Ah, poor Tom Cruise. The misunderstanding is understandable.

      I'm in. I'll wear a business suit. But can I wear a coyote tail, or would that be too "fluffy"? Can I wear therian jewellery, subtle and understated? I need one of those theta-delta necklaces. I kind of want to talk about the inspiration provided to me pre-Awakening by true weres like Goldenwolf. "A golden wolf on a golden horse." Her artwork captured my soul. But Kyoht did even better: http://img15.deviantart.net/2c9d/i/2...c_by_kyoht.jpg. I want a pet corvid. How did she know?! Truly, a kindred spirit.

      What about headmates? Can we mention those? I recently dreamed about a pink dragon that was the manifestation of a shamanic teacher plant spirit and now I think she might be part of my psyche.

      I think as long as you wear a buiness suit, a big fluffy coyote tail and six or seven pieces of jewelry would be fine. Maybe some ears as well, just so that viewers know that we are the real thetans. I mean therians of course. But we're calling ourselves thetans until the production is over so as not to upset Tom Cruise too much.

      Yes, I think that will make George Tsoukalos very happy to do the interview. He seems to really like talking about beings from other worlds. He calls them aliens though, just to be more scientific.

      Oh HA HA, guys. Great big sounding deal of a project and you choose to put it out there on April 1st? I WANT it to be real, don't get me wrong, but I'm going to wait a few days before deciding that you're actually serious.

      Wasn't someone already working on something behind the scenes that I'm forgetting about, or am I crazy?
