Thank you for offerring your help. So, I'm in India and that's not ideal either.

So assuming we want to have make these films in time for the 20th
birthday, i.e October 14, we can team up at QtCon and maybe spend an
extra week or two in filming some stories. We might even be able to
find a few more volunteers at QtCon if we're lucky. Would that work
fine for you ?

But if we want to showcase the films at QtCon, that's going to be a
little difficult indeed(as majority of the long term KDE folks are in
based in Europe). I think meeting up at QtCon and then moving forward
would be the most effective(cost and otherwise) way to go forward. Do
you have any suggestions ?

P.S: Sorry for the late reply. I was busy with my university exams.

Yes, we might have to go out and gather footage from the daily lives of people, who don't mind being on camera and who have made an impact on the KDE community.
