Me, ADFan185, Sovereign, and Snik have been thinking about contacting Mark Pudleiner (an animator who worked on Don Bluth films) has any stills, cels, or information at least about the lost scenes of the original Land Before Time. We may ask about All Dogs Go to Heaven as well (not sure if he worked on the movie or not though).

Since Pudleiner released that storyboards recently, he's obvious first candidate for letter. But I also think: maybe there're other people who can be contacted by mail without much trouble?

also, I'm absolutely not good in composing letters, so I can't help with that.

Edit: Oh wow I'm Ducky now! ^^

And I'm Spike :)

I'm not really sure who else worked on the film, I don't have much knowledge of that.

According to IMDB, he did work on All Dogs Go to Heaven. That site is a good place to investigate who worked on which film. Also, you may just watch the credits. ;) I don't know if it worth it to go through everyone who worked on LBT but there could be somewhat we could contact. Pudleiner is probably the easiest person to start.

On his blog he mentioned that he worked on ADGTH, so yeah, he did. I'm not even sure if he knew that the sharptooth storyboard drawings had cut scenes...we could ask him about that too.

Same. Maybe some people aren't available to post right now.

Well, there have been countless past attempts to recover the lost scenes so perhaps people think this is one of them? :unsure: Anyway, I could do the message unless somebody else wants to.

Yeah, you could do it. I don't know if I'd do good at composing a message. I wouldn't want to mess up or ask him the wrong question or not be polite or anything. We wouldn't want to annoy him, or we might not get the information we're looking for.

Yeah let's not hound the guy he does need his privacy and if he doesn't get back to us in a day or two or a bit long than we should send a reminder e-mail.

I don't think it would hurt to ask him, and I'd be interested to hear about his experiences working on the movie in general. Let me know if you need any help writing the letter/e-mail :D

I'm really bad at those official openings and endings of a letter but I hope I have managed to do a satisfactory draft of the message. Please give your thoughts about this proposition.

Greetings, Mr. Pudleiner! Iím writing on behalf of several members of the Gang of Five, a fansite dedicated to the Land Before Time. We are extremely grateful for the great storyboards you shared with us in 2015 as they gave us new information about the original film, especially concerning the deleted scenes. The scenes cut from the film just before its release have been of immense interest to us, the fans of the series, and we would be extremely grateful if you could share some details about your memories concerning the scenes and the overall making of the movie.

We would like to know if you might have any additional storyboards about those scenes or if you could explain what those deleted scenes were and what happened in them. For example, what happened in the first, uncut sharptooth attack scene that we didnít see in the final film? Was there an extended scene about Spikeís birth? We would be incredibly thankful if you could tell us what you remember about those 11 lost minutes and your overall experiences about the production of the Land Before Time.

P.S Do you know anyone else who worked on the film who could be able to provide us with more information or sketches from the lost scenes? Any further contact information would be greatly appreciated!

Thank you
Gang of Five

I think it is a good message. Much better than as good as I was going to do.

Well, I'm glad that you found it somewhat acceptable. Still, I'd like to know how the formal parts (greetings and signature) should be improved before we send it. I'm sure they're not correct.

You could say something like "Sorry to bother you" or something early on possibly. You could change "T. rex" instead of Sharptooth. You could also put at the end:

Thank you,
Gang of Five Forum

instead of

Thank you,

I'll send this tomorrow. I'd like more people to have their say at this message. Pudleiner is one of the people who created the film and went through every part of its production. We don't have many such people available for contact and I'm surprised this hasn't caught more attention. :neutral
