No matter what it'll upset someone. There's no way to cover every possible form/interpretation/method/whatever of tulpas/headmates/soulbonds/multiples/imaginary friends/thoughtforms/daemons/tulpae/servitors/medians/headbuddies.

Let's create a tulpa.info Youtube channel and everyone makes their own video with their own explanation of what they are and what they do!!

I liked the idea of a series, even though it's pretty unrealistic.
" I think you could fill up five minutes with three questions, or maybe if you just want one guy talking, fifteen rapid fire FAQ questions."
Looks great ! questions and answers should be thought of and discussed by the community before actually filming, to try and cover as many "form/interpretation/method/whatever of tulpas/headmates/soulbonds/multiples/imaginary friends/thoughtforms/daemons/tulpae/servitors/medians/headbuddies" as possible Wink

I will never be willing to be mean. Please tell me if I was, or if my English was wrong.
I always want to learn, and understand more things !

 I would be OK to edit such a monster. My edition skills are pretty average, but I'm a very patient person, and that kind of documentary could be pretty useful to the community ! I'm wondering tho, who would actually watch something like a 30 minutes long documentary on "nuts people talking and interacting with voices in their head" ?
I certainly would have (I mean before I took part of this adventure) but i think it narrows the possible audience.
Anyway, who said we only had to make ONE video ? I'm pretty sure we have the skills (split between all of us) to make different formats !

RE: If other people portray tulpas in a way we don't like, we should portray it ourselves
Here's what I would suggest: keep it short, to a couple of minutes, focus on good production value - honestly there's plenty decent written about tulpas, but most presentations of it are boring at best. It doesn't need to be that long and I don't think you need to go overboard with interviews; it's a journalistic device that's not relevant for something introspective, and it's just a lot more work and more to go wrong.

Also, there are plenty of video intros/explanations of tulpas made by people in/around the community already. Take a look at these videos as an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQ8gcgGqR4g, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Juy6qtcugX8, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JcVlwTxpVg. What's good or bad about them? If you had to do another one, how would you use/change the format and content in them?

You don't need a 30-minute PBS-style whatever. I suggest
  • Writing a script of a couple of minutes of explanation/exposition - it will be way easier if one person just goes and does this, then everyone else who wants a voice can feed back into it
  • Narrating that, either one person or collaboratively - preferably someone who can speak well and has a decent mic
  • Edit the narration together on top of a pretty video track - I don't know what you would want for this. Stick figure animation seems kind of uninteresting, but I guess it's a popular format. I don't have any good ideas for this.


I'm kind of interested in this and I'd happily help. My advice for getting things done collaboratively is to strike out unilaterally, meaning do a bunch of work yourself and then let others modify it. I don't want to ignore my own advice, so I could do a first draft or something if others don't want to first.

I think this is indeed the best to do. We have a couple of good drawers in this community.
Explaining the idea of Tulpamancy (and other kinds of systems maybe ?) through narration with a clear and sexy fluent voice, a bunch of simplist diagrams/drawings, with a relevant background music seems the most efficient, cringe-proof, with the broadest audience possible ; IMHO.

I'd think that sliding a few words about other "mindsystems" types could help to clarify things for everyone, and maybe open the door for further research ? IDK.

I'd prefer something mostly live action. I am not sure, why images are seen as a good idea for video?

Stuff in a few diagrams and some stock footage, and I think having a live action presenter is best.

RE: If other people portray tulpas in a way we don't like, we should portray it ourselves
I think tulpas need more media, yes. The editor inside me would love to help out with production, although it seems you guys already got it covered.
If you need it, I can offer a Audio Technica AT2020+ usb microphone and my voice. I aspire to work with voice acting.
I have also worked a bit with Adobe Audition and a lot with Vegas Movie Studio 10.
Content-wise I probably can't help out a lot as a complete novice Smile But I wouldn't be afraid to speak up.
I also think a visual aspect is necessary, as people take in information in different ways. Animations will probably not be a doable task, however, as no one seems to have animation skills.

I'd like to say though, if you want a lot of people to hear about tulpas without it being negatively framed, I would suggest reaching out to Love+Radio.
They cover controversial stuff not a lot of people talk about, and I think that's why their followers listen to the podcast as well - To get an experience.
I don't think they manipulate with the story you tell them, although they do exceptional editing to create an atmosphere around the story. They do also ask some critical questions to make both you and the listeners think. So it wouldn't be a perfect "brand deal", but they typically make room for listeners to make their own opinions on the matter.
This can even be a seperate thing to do other than making this project! Smile If you find some people, who would be up to be interviewed by strangers.

I mean, I can draw stick figures and make them move, what more animation do we need?

If this is to be taken more serious than the other interviews, a stick figure animation isn't going to do it.
Something like a Google Hangouts is how I would personally do it.

She's the giggle at a funeral,
Knows everybody's disapproval,
I should've worshipped her sooner."

If the visuals aren't enriching the experience, they're distracting. Given the visual suggestions so far, I'd rather have a succinct, carefully edited podcast sans music.

Though, I'd love something like this about plurality, but doubt anyone here would invest such effort.
