Oh, and my roommate--who is a whiz with puzzles & computer information systems--is usually up for anything, so with me, you kind of get two for the price of one. haha.
I'd rather not post an email; PM here is best.

-Video editing (iMovie)
-Advanced audio editing
-Codes/puzzles (How come nobody ever uses base58?)
-I have quite a bit of experience DMimg, so I would love to do some player interaction/emailing.
-I'm great for bouncing ideas off of. Tell me your idea and I will give you all the possible problems with it. "What about this? What if that?" are among the things that I might say. I very much enjoy troubleshooting ideas. If nothing else, shoot me a message with your ARG idea, and I'll help you work out the kinks.
I would rather not give out my primary email adress on a thread viewable by anyone, so send me a PM. THmanslayrSPLATgmail.com is also an option, but I rarely check that.

I'd love to be involved in an ARG, or even a transmedia story.
Iím really good at building on ideas, expanding and fine tuning and remembering those little threads. If you think big, I can pay attention to detail and vise versa.
I'm pretty motivated.
I enjoy making puzzles. Pretty much though if you give me the context and tell me what materials I have to work with Iím sure I can make a puzzle both one layered (or, only cipher* say) or multilayered (for example, creating a trail leading to a puzzle that gives you the key to the next puzzle).
I have a (lower end) video camera.
Iím a registered nurse and currently specialising in psych. Can bring a lot of information from those fields to the table.
I like reserching f it's history or magc or medical etc.
I live in Sydney, Australia. And I sound *really* Australian.
Iíve never acted before.
PM me if you're interested or email me at pervertedintellectualSPLATgmail.com
*Ciphers are fun. Depending on game needs I can have an easy 1=A code or a more advanced with extra letters (for example, giving E, the most common letter used in the English language, three different symbols so you canít break it up by looking for common letters). Hell, it can be as difficult as you want with common joining letters (like "th" being one symbol, odd spacing to pretend words are shorter or longer than they are, etc. You know, easy to do, hell to decode).

Hey all. I've never done anything in puppetmastering and I wanted to see what it's all about. I can learn to do a lot of basic things, but I really have no specialty. My real interest is just to see what all goes on behind a project. I'll help if I can, but I'd really like to just see the behind the scenes of an ARG. If anyone is willing to let me just follow an ARG from a PM standpoint, send me a message. I promise to not let any answers to puzzles out if you let me sit behind a project. Thanks in advance.

I love ARGs and willing to give any puppet master a hand with some of the more creative aspects:
-Story Telling/Story Development
-Audio editing/Sound Design
-Basic Video editing (Sony Vegas 9 Pro)

Hey, mythworks! I'm in Toronto too. I actually just put in two grant applications (one from Toronto Arts Council and the other from the Ontario Arts Council) to do a local ARG for next year (we'll see what happens).
@ everyone else:
Number one: I'm pretty hardcore in any project i do...people can depend on me, but I'm also very ambitious and have a high drive so it can be hard for some to keep up. So if you aren't really serious then DON'T look me up . I am planning to make a career out of this in the next few years so any project I am part of I want to be proud of.
My main strengths are writing and organization/project management of live events and research, as well as media relations (i mean for press releases, etc. if the ARG is large enough/creative enough to warrant it).
And when I say writing: I'm fairly competent and prolific. I have a minor in English (Creative Writing), and have mentored under a quasi-famous Canadian writer.
I suckorz at left brain puzzles and ciphers, but great for creativity, right brain and out of the box thinking.
I think I suck at acting, but I recently did a video on youtube in response to the Charlie Chaplin Time Traveller (I thought it was an ARG) that got over 5000 hits where people really believed I believed the crazy things I was saying -- so I can play crazy at least, ahaha.
Experience with ARGS: I played Conspiracy For Good pretty hardcore, and 48 hours in Purgatory somewhat before that, before that I mostly lurked...but I have studied transmedia/args pretty religiously and did a minor in Digital Media Studies where ARG's were my focus area.
I have a BFA so for Art skills: Drawing, Painting, Photoshop, screenprinting, etc. hell -- I can even weave a QR code into cloth. However, I suck at photography.
PM here is best.

Im in Toronto, and have been looking at getting involved in ARGs for quite awhile. I've worked on the web for about 15 years as a designer, information architect and picked up a respectable amount of programming, as well as dabbled in film making - so this stuff is right up my alley, and I love the media...
Video / Audio Editing
I'd like to cut my teeth a bit on some stuff, but don't want to bite off more than I can chew (timewise speaking) - so I guess I want to start slowly.
As an extension of this thread - does unfiction have a list where someone keeps these volunteers (e.g. excel spreadsheet or other DB view)? For instance, I'd love to see where I could contact PMs in cities to leave trailmarkers (notes, symbols, objects) etc.
Anywho, lemme know - email is themythworks at our overlord Google's postal outlet.

I am attempting to create an arg to use as (a) a promotion and (b) a model to pitch to a serious group of investors whom I know will be very interested in my concept.
I will provide additional details as needed.
Quite frankly, right now I only have a vague notion of what I need to do and a limited amount of time and resources in which to do it.
PM me for additional information.
