pitbulllady - You should find all of the relevant information about general commentating in this thread: Fan Commentaries - Rules and Information. If you have any questions that aren’t covered in that thread, post over there and I’ll answer and add more info to the original post.
The Monsters, Inc. commentary will take place in late June. We haven’t yet organised an exact date or time yet. That usually gets organised after the practice has finished. However, I must point out that the callout for new commentators for this month (a practice is compulsory before anyone can do a feature), has now closed. But I’ve stretched the rules a little bit, so if you can turn up to the most likely practice date that will be happening next week, then you can participate in Monsters, Inc.:
Tuesday 9th/Wednesday 10th June
Oregon: 7:30pm, Tuesday 9th June
Minneapolis: 9:30pm, Tuesday 9th June
??? GMT + 8: 10:30am, Wednesday 10th June
So, basically, if you can make it to the above time, you can participate in the practice and then the Monsters, Inc. feature. If not, unless you are Mygames19 or Hannahmation (since they got their schedules to me on time) then I won’t take your schedule into account because the deadline has already passed. Those who have already done a practice in the past don’t have to do another one, unless they want to, and would still be able to participate in Monsters, Inc.. I’m sorry if this seems a little harsh. I’m not doing it to exclude people. It’s just that in the past when we didn’t have deadlines, the commentaries would sparsely get recorded because people were slow or never sent in their schedules, so these deadlines are the only real way to weed out the people who are sorta-kinda interested in commentating if they can find the time, from those who really want to participate.
Pixarians don’t actively participate in any fan medium on Pixar Planet, that I’m aware of, but that’s not to say they don’t listen, read, or look at anything we do - probably quite the opposite. It’s just that they are quiet about it. So, no, we have never had any Pixarian participate in a fan commentary, and I’d be surprised if that ever happened in the future. Just because Pixar may not listen to it (and you never know, they might), it doesn’t take away from the benefits and fun we have doing it. I’m not here to convince anyone to participate, but if you listen to the completed commentaries we’ve done, then maybe that will give you an idea of whether fan commentaries are for you.
