Date: 1 Mar 1998 18:59:13 GMT Atari 8-bit Enthusiasts, I posted this message about a week ago, and it just caused an argument, and I got no offers of help at all, so I am posting this again. Please do not argue over whether I should do a video or a CD-ROM. That argument is over. I am doing a VIDEO only. As well as the general stuff I need listed below, I am also keen to get hold of a photo of Jay Miner, or any other people from the original Atari 8-bit development team. So far I have a photo of Atari's HQ circa 1986, along with some key members of staff working at their desks within Atari. I also have an early photo of David Crane circa 1983. I also have photos taken inside Atari UK circa 1982. I am keen to get more photos, perhaps late 70's inside Atari HQ. Can you help? I will be getting video of Curt Vendel's prototypes (1450XLD, etc.) being used, etc. I may also be getting a couple of Atari TV commercials from 1982, but copyright is a problem here, so I can't promise these will be included. If you want to help, or you have any of the items I am need of, please E-Mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org Please do not just reply to the newsgroup, because I may miss your posting. Thanks. Original posting from last week: As you may know, I am currently working on a 'History of the Atari 8-bit' video, along with Andy Leininger who is looking after the U.S side of things. We are now working out exactly what will be in the video, and this is where we need your help. We are hoping the video will contain info you never knew about before, and/or won't have seen before. This is what we are particularly keen to get hold of: * Photos and/or film/video of Atari shows (or of the Atari at non-specific shows) * Photos and/or film/video of any Atari promotions (in-house stuff would really be nice) * Press releases announcing Atari products (including the original one from late 1978 announcing the 400/800) * Rare/unreleased press releases (esp. for the unreleased equipment or unreleased games) * Any ex-Atari employees who could offer inside info/gossip from within Atari corp at the time of the Atari 8-bit's reign * Any other material which people are unlikely to know about or are unlikely to have seen before If you can offer any help with the above items, or have any comments/suggestions about the video and its contents, then please send E-Mail to me at this dedicated video E-Mail address: email@example.com To find out more about the video project, please visit: http://www.dgs.clara.net Thanks, Dean Garraghty -- Michael Current, mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org 8-bit Atari FAQ and Vendor Lists, http://www.faqs.org/faqs/atari-8-bit/ Cleveland Free-Net Atari SIG, telnet://freenet-in-c.cwru.edu (go atari) St. Paul Atari Computer Enthusiasts, http://www.library.carleton.edu/space/
