I think that moving "the project" may not move the "the event" that the project is based on. It seems that the "projects" are smallish files that store info about how to put your movie together based on the raw footage you shot. But the actual video footage does not get copied with the project. I am not sure, but maybe this helps. I'd like to hear the proper way to move a project intact with all footage included.
The macrumours link just telss you how to move the events which is relatively straightforward.
Alot of advice just seems to rest with leave the projects on your internal drive as they don't take up much space.
However, http://karsten.schluter.googlepages.com/im08tricks has a description of how to move the projects and then 'fool' imovie into where the projects are stored.
Not very flexible but it does allow you to 'clear' your macbook yet when you restore the sym-link file to the right place and restart imovie you can reconnect to all your old projects and events without yellow triangles of death appearing.
By the by apple needs to sort this out as archiving old projects and events together and preserve the editing is a really basic requirment I think.
PS anyone found out how to merge projects yet? Another basic function that seems to be lacking.
