For those who may have missed the latest newsletter last week:

Quote
We are very excited to announce that linguist Professor Paul Frommer, creator of the Na'vi language, will be joining us for AvatarMeet 2012! As part of the event, Paul will be co-teaching a series of Na'vi language workshops with Txonä Rolyu, Prrton, and ‘Oma Tirea; open to all registered attendees who are interested in learning the Na'vi language from the masters themselves. The interactive workshops are designed as a beginner’s introduction to the language, but are open to Na'vi speakers of all levels. No prior knowledge of Na’vi is necessary, but if you want to get a jump start on the language, check out the myriad of resources over at LearnNavi.org. To sign up to attend the Na'vi lesson, simply edit your AvatarMeet.com profile and answer "yes" to "Are you attending the Na'vi language class at Avatar Meet 2012?". You will show as signed up on the Roll Call list and you'll know you have your space reserved for this exciting opportunity! Space may be limited, so sign up today!

Signup & details of course over at AvatarMeet.com

Unknown at this time. We'll look into it.

They are interactive though, so to get the most of them, you'll want to be there.

Sure, but any Na'vi straight from Paul's mouth adds to our solid knowledge.

Amen, especially for those of us that are unfortunate enough to not be able to attend =(

What would it take to record these?

I plan on doing still photography this year, like I did last year. But I have no preparations to do video at this time. But, that can be arranged.

Yawey ngahu!

Technically won't be a problem. Alan is our team video guru.

Just need to get the right clearances; shouldn't be a problem.

Avatar Nation is in the process of getting press access at the EMP again so if we can get the clearance to record  (video and audio) we have the gear to get high quality recordings done.

The Na'vi lessons will be a private event; so not sure you're press creds will help you unless we decide you're cool.  ;)

It's just something we need to ask Pawl and the other aykaryu.

DJ Makto is cool. Don't question the lion! ;)

I am trying to log into Avatarmeet without success (I've had an account there for a long time, username/password combos I would have likely used are not working), so I can sign up for the lessons. Did the outage change anything as far as accessing Avatarmeet go?

Ah that is good to hear, I should note that Alan is a cast member on Avatar Nation and will be helping out with the recordings and I'm also helping with the video for his fan film project. Right now I have 2 HD cameras and a field recorder to pledge to the cause.

My goal is to help document the meetup very thoroughly for the folks who will not be able to join us in Seattle.  ;)

It is my understanding that "Yes." All of the content will be engineered for beginners.

That's good to know. I'm definitely going to need all the help I can get.  ;)
