Hi I'm one of Lumi's tulpas. I like rain and dancing and dancing in the rain and if there's frogs there too that's bonus points.
All of my posts should be read at a hundred miles per hour because that's probably how they were written.

I have been thinking about this project, and I was thinking that what we should do is have someone* (jean-luc) interview a bunch of participants, the conversations need to be recorded (but not edited). Then, someone* (could be anyone really *cough cough*) should listen to the recordings and construct a narrative. This would include generating a list of questions for each participant. Then someone* (jean-luc) should reinterview each participant with the list of questions for that participant. Then someone* (say, Vampire) can edit the answers together into cleaned audio tracks. At the same time, someone* (jean-luc) should walk around town filming live action narration segments. Afterwards, the live action segments and audio tracks can be sent to the editing room to be stitched together along with whatever graphics and special effects the community can come up with.

That sounds like a lot of work. Also I'm not sure interviews are the best way to explain a concept like this.

But you still want to portray the phenomenon, but not in written form, in youtube form. And you want it to be a group project, with more than one person speaking on it.

All you would need to do to get started is ask for volunteers who want to talk about tulpas and can be considered "experts" and then casually chat with them for an hour on a recorded call.

I am not all that worried about negative attention in the Tulpa community I enjoy having my Tulpa and if people don't like it... not my problem

I propose that we create our own video to explain tulpas to the common person, in a way that we like. 

I've dabbled in video editing and animation.

Just discovered this thread, thanks to Tulpa for showing it to me. There's a ton of similarities to what was proposed here and what I ended up doing with my channel; I wish I had found this when I was starting. Despite the shoddy video quality of my first few vids, it was my third time fully recording those scripts, and working with everyone here may have allowed me to get that ball rolling months before I was finally able to upload in January. If y'all are still interested and want to help level up the quality of my content, I'd love to work together. 

Jean, those are the same reasons I made my videos. I was tired of the only video sources being occult BS, and I wanted to present the perspective of the psychological tulpa community. Thankfully, my videos are now top search results for all tulpa related terms, so this is no longer an issue ^^

Can confirm that Tulpa is a great script editor <3

Funny thing, I sort of do this-- spend 3 videos explaining the basics, then I start sharing experiences and Aury shares her story. 

Although my long-term goal is a feature documentary film. Changed my major to a communications degree with that partially in mind. Focusing on getting better in quality and cinematography with each new video to get there eventually. Give me a few years~

Jean, you say you can animate. Even if it's just simple stuff, would you be willing to help me remake my tulpa 101 video(s)? I have a lot of improvements to my original one I'd like to make, and replacing the whiteboard drawing with some simple animation would be #1 on that list.

Yes, every video I make connects tulpas to other plural experiences! Although my end goal is something more like vsauce. High quality and expressive person in front of the camera interlaced with text that pops up and simple animations that demonstrate concepts. He does such a great job addressing alternate perspectives in a fun, yet non-defensive fashion that I want to emulate in my 101 remake. Like: https://youtu.be/VNqNnUJVcVs

I have After Effects, Illustrator, and Photoshop, but I'm somewhat lacking in the vector field. Although I do like the idea of a whiteboard explanation, which would erase the need for animation.

If you need lower thirds, or anything like that, I'd be happy to help.

I use whiteboard explanations right now, but I'm a shit artist. Would you be willing to help out on a revamped 101? I'm probably going to keep using my whiteboard for most videos, but for future outreach efforts, I want to put my best possible foot forward. Some lower thirds for the video clips / interviews I use would definitely enhance the experience, as would infographics. I have Vegas and Premiere, but don't have a PC that can handle after effects. If there's something in Premiere you can teach me, I'm eager to learn. I'm gradually getting better (see: the custom VFX at the start of my Identity video ((disregard subsequent cringe)).

Straight up: I've received almost 0 outside negative feedback. Some butthurt Christians, but that's it. Rest is just community members that don't like my presentation style / degree of self-promotion. Tulpas aren't instictively hated; a good explanation can go a long way ^^

I hope we all can work together. HMU here or on Discord if you're down! My tag is Jade [Aury]#0504

Eh, I've gone through like one synfig tutorial and then gotten frustrated and then the program crashed. But hey, I also hadn't done any audio editing before I started the podcast, I'd like to at least try. I can't help you right now, busy with other life things but possibly later at some point. No garuntees.

That said, your whiteboard-animation is actually pretty good. I think you may be better off cropping the edges of the whiteboard (so that you can't see them) and overexposing the shot in post, it'll probably look really nice. Granted that's only from a small look at it, I haven't had a chance to view all your videos yet.
