All Summer in a day - Ray Bradbury short

Hello everyone,

I wanted to tell everyone about a project that I started a while ago but haven't gotten around to finish. Back in the early 80's, PBS showed a short called "All Summer In A Day" which was a film adaptation of a Ray Bradbury short story. I finally located a master VHS and converted it to DVD. The DVD itself is done, although it's very simple with a static (custom) menu and no chapters (from what I remember).

Because this movie is so short, I'd like to include some DVD-ROM features, 1 includes a "teacher's handout" that came along with the tape for teachers to quiz their students, the other would be artwork. I have scans of the original cover and have converted all the type from the back to Word format.

I was wondering if anyone would be interested in helpming me out with this project, I just need artwork. I was planning on doing some polishing on the actual video but I don't have the talent, patience or time for that and after all, it is just a short. But if anyone that can do that, and would like to, I can send you the dvd as well.

When finished I was planning on torrenting it if there was interest but again this project was just for my own satisfaction. I'm not sure why but I had to have this, it was one of those grey memories of something I watched as a kid and always wanted to have on tape (now DVD) just because it stuck in my head for so long.

So give me your feedback. Does anyone even remember this short?

I was also working on compiling all the HBO Short takes onto DVD that I could remember. Including "Hardware Wars", "Closet Cases of the Nerd Kind", "Recorded Live", and others but I couldn't find all of them, MIA is the Peanut Butter Sandwich Short where someone is humming along and making a messy peanut butter sandwitch with a full loaf of bread.

I'm interested in the project, but can't really help with anything. I'd offer to help with the artwork, but my photoshop program is terrible with small type. I could help with making a snazzy dvd menu if you wanted and if I had the polished video someone else might be kind enough to do. Menus are real fun.

Either way, definitely want to see it, and I just felt like voicing some support.

Holy CRAP IN A HAT!!!! My jaw just dropped and tears just came to my eyes.......

That was a favorite story in 4th grade by Bradbury. If you have this, I definitely want this and will PIF the hell outta this (still awaiting everything I'm signed up for PIF).

This sounds like a great project. Now if anybody wants to do an edit of Something Wicked This Way Comes with the features of the LD, isolated score and commentary by Bradbury. I have the LD and the current DVD is sadly lacking in any special features.
There's good in the Original Trilogy, and it's worth fighting for.
