    Exclamation Helpers Needed

    Okay. I've sat down and looked at what needs to be done before even filming starts. I've also found a few snags. I could use some help from a few people.

    1st I need a script writer that can read from a story board. I can draw up the story board but am not good at coming up with words to put on it. I need someone that will be able to talk back and forth either through email or phone at least twice a week.

    2nd. I need help finding research. I need research done on Autism, Clinical Lycanthrophy, the Mythology of werewolves, and different types of shifts. PLEASE NO PERSONAL EXPERIENCES HERE. I need it to be either documented from a book, website, or someone higher in the community.


    Just because its being reseached does not mean that it will be used. I know that it will be a big help in finishing up the Pre-Production and help give a road to follow.
    The storm of war will arrive and thunder and blood will rain down from on high! Revolution is at hand. Unite!! Take up arms. Stand shoulder to shoulder with your brothers and sisters! And break free from the cold shackles of oppression. There will be no surrender! Only glory and honor! Stand and be counted among those that dare to fight for their freedom!

    I currently work in a CDS room at an elementary school: we have a lot of autism resources, and I can probably photocopy some of the best/most relevant information and recommend titles. Would that be something useful to you?
    In addition, if you don't find anyone else to do 'types of shifts' (but I bet you will) I find that very interesting and I'd love to compile a list.

    One thing I must note is that I'm 17, not eighteen yet. I would love to help in any way I can, but as Savage pointed out, you have to be careful in using resources from minors.
    Let me know!

    I could probably help in the script writing department if you would like. I'm currently in a higher level screenwriting class and have been using storyboards all throughout my years in film school. I'm available through email mostly but I can be available through phone as well.

    Sabine Baring-Gould has wrote a book called "The Book of Werewolves" which documents both cases of Lycanhropy and wolves and werewolves in mythology; this may be helpful to you.

    I also could gain access to a book called "In the footsteps of the werewolf" which claimed in synopsis to talk about the legends of werewolves throughout mythology.

    I also have access to this book-
    http://books.google.com/books?id=aBF...ce=gbs_ViewAPI
    but don't know if this angle is going to be explored.

    Lupa's "A Field Guide to Otherkin" goes into information about the different types of shifts a therian may experience.

    I can also get infomation on, at least, six books concerning Autism and whether or not they may be useful to the project.

    I have access to a book on clinical lycanthropy and could probably dig up some others.

    I'll head to the public library tomorrow and search for some books on clinical lycanthropy as well as werewolf mythology. If I find anything worth noting I'll let you know asap. I'm assuming you're going to be basing the Were mythology off of western-european lore so I'll focus in with that.

    I've two people that I know of at school that are psychology students. Getting a social life would be no bad thing for me, so I would be more than happy to get together with them and study up on psychology. One of the people I know also has acquaintances who dabble in the paranormal, so I could ask him if contact with the third kind would be allowed or desired in this project.

    I would be willing to contribute some research time on some of these topics. Coming up hear in January I am going to be in a Medical Anthropology class and we will be discussing things like clinical lycanthropy and how in various cultures this has been shown in myths and legends about "werewolves." If during the course I find some interesting credible articles I will forward them along.

    May I suggest the book 'Animals in Translation: Using the Mysteries of Autism'? I apologise that I can't actually supply it to you, but I think it's a pretty good book that provides a balanced look at both sides of the colon, rather than leaning heavily on one side and thinly backing it up with the other. Unusually for a book on the Autistic spectrum, it isn't too patronising either.

    Feel free to pull from my essays on CameoShifting (http://project-shift.org/therianthropy/cameo.php) or on general therianthropy (http://project-shift.org/therianthro...ouatherian.php). Or really anything I've written anywhere as long as you let me know.

    Also, if you are looking for more essays on types of shifts/therianthropy information, I'd suggest perusing the WereLibrary and more from Project Shift.
