Luckily I had sent one playblast to Stephanie DeGiovanni, who was kind enough to never delete it from her computer. After getting the file from her my laptop crashed again and sadly that was one of the few files I still didn't back up. So now after getting it from her a second time almost a year later I made 10,000 copies of that one playblast, as well as uploaded it online so it's forever on the web.
This is probably the most completed it will ever get. Technically I could start over-- which I may do one day-- or I may just do a shorter iteration of this test. But for now I move forward...with one eye on the save button and the other on the backup files in my external hard drive.
