Current notes of our activities and ideas:
--Create Manifesto of Tron: Uprising
> Manifest incentive for all Programs looking to be active
> Singular activist entry
> Group manifest for activities
> Core values
> Primary goals
> Secondary goals or associations
> Note also regard for our own safety and mutual support of one another
-- List active ideas for action for Tron: Uprising Programs
> Manifesto (fan-wide, anyone) entreaty to fans for action; also point of group-identification - we stand as one, we call on others
> Individual projects - letters to Disney, word to friends
> Group projects - active groups, public displays and activities
> Strike forces - activists willing for a cause
-- Support (financial, material) for these persons
-- Media (tumblr, blog, photos) coverage for these people
-- Proper briefing on possible public/legal concerns before taking action; we must consider these things carefully, not that I expect any real trouble - at worst, 'mischief warning'
> Charitable causes - Donation of Uprising DVDs to public works, libraries, drop-in centers, etc.
> Portfolio development - tracking held group events, photos, charitable work, sending formally bound books and works to Disney as a statement of our intent and hard work and love of Tron.
-- Group Contacts, Divisions, or Registry:
> Who are you, what do you seek to do, do you have a name for your group?
> How can we all help in this effort?
> What locales are you in, to make this heard, or what impact can you have on Disney?
> What skills do we have to offer? (Ex: I am a hobby leathercrafter, bookbinder, and stonecarver; I possess tools for minor working of wood and boards, a drill for metals and plastics)
> Is it possible for group-wide contact with other members? Gather as a group and have live chat or video with other supporting members?
> Is sharing or mailing of resources (banners, lights, leaflets, shirts, anything) desired or possible?
-- Current ideas for materials and supplies:
> Large image projector
> 'Strike team' smaller projectors (handheld)
> Banner production
> Emblem-flag/stand production
> leaflet production
> Sidewalk chalk 'Tron lives' stencils
-- Misc. Notes:
> Forwarding Manifesto and public displays to media/social Networks/Blogs
List ends here.
My own rambling:
ZexionVI, good idea! I've had this idea, myself. This would make a good, easy activity for nigh any willing Program!
Well, Daft Tron, I take it that makes me an ISO... I never would have figured. I am also a female.
Nikefutbolero, consider yourself our first 'strike' member. Automatically, you have my pledge of 20 dollars (American), for gas money. Arrangement for getting that to you can follow, once we have the hardware for you.
I've been thinking over the idea of a handheld, concealable image projector (in two parts, a front mount for a 35mm slide, and a focussing lens, and the main high-lumen flashlight, at least 200 lumens) for a couple of weeks. I have also considered attempting to find old cameras (of the bulky, photography sort), and seeing if they can be hollowed out and modified into image projectors.
I intend to produce a custom case for the main unit, and two side units for easy carrying. Design sketches may follow, including those for public display/rally banners.
I will also discuss a draft Manifesto with someone I know; she has a fair background in writing and documentation of general sorts.
Dawnstar: Although black is an appealing choice for aesthetics, that may best be suited for more formal or not-so-numerous works. A black background would be hell on one's ink supply. Minimalist work is best.... But we should share your work here and submit multiple ideas and see what has the greatest design impact. I am sure that all of us could review this and find what is the most appealing.
Also, Tron Lives images:
