FMA project  
Hm. This is random but-
I'm curious if any talented artists out there would be interested in working on creating a FMA fan-project-
( of high quality )

...this summer.

A fan-made doujin collection.
(or) A few minutes of traditional animation.

I've even been tinkering with the idea of commissioning the best non professional/sole animator I can find around Deviantart or elsewhere ( within a decent pay-range ) and having them make a short fan-film.

( Would anyone be interesting in a 'drive'/collection for this; somehow moderated by someone fair/well known in the fandom so there's no possibility for problems? Or is it a damned shitty idea and no one wants to see that happen? )

I would be really, really careful about making animation. Lawyers might turn a blind eye to fanart and doujinshi and stuff, but animation has the potential to cause brand confusion, which is a huge no-no in the eyes of the industry. For an example of what I mean by brand confusion, the fangame Bluebird's Illusion has become so prolific among the fanbase that new fans have mistaken it for being canon. This is why that game should never be mentioned to the actual companies that own FMA. It isn't something they made and it's being confused with something they made. Never a good thing.

Also, getting money involved would make this even more risky. I'd just go with the doujinshi to be on the safer side.
