Posted:In regards to the free "COL4 Video" that the submitters recieve (and the two free videos that the used submitters get) Can we choose to recieve it in DVD or VHS? Or for the submitions that get used, a combination of the two (one VHS, one DVD) or two DVD...? I only ask because I recently got a DVD player too, and I figured it might be cool to try out a DVD version. If so, maybe we could all choose the format we want to recieve. Not all people have VHS players and not all people have DVD players.

we eat and we drink and we smoke and we try!

Super busy. Trying to increase brightness on videos without losing quality of picture. Trying different things with what we have. Will not be 100% what we will be using for a week or two.

Have had a few hiccups but all is moving well now.

Posted:Well done Malcolm.

So, if the DVD will be released later, please can whoever is on the tape choose to wait for the DVD as their free copy (I don't have a vhs player).

That would be great.

Posted:All those who will get free videos will get at least one VHS copy. People who are on the video will get 1 x VHS copy sent to them. They can opt to have a DVD sent later on as they are allowed two free videos.

I really want to send out VHS first and make sure there is no major stuff-up in creating the video before I go to the expense of getting all the DVD's made.

Posted:Malcolm. Would it help if those that were overly interested were to pay in advance? Would that make it easier on you?

Posted:I feel it would help if about 100 people paid in advance, but too many under that it probably wouldn't make a difference.

Encouraging others to buy from HoP would likely make more of a difference faster and in the long run.

But I'm sure I have no idea what I'm talking about and Malcolm will correct me shortly...

Posted:Thank you for the offers of help

Getting a batch of DVD's done is very expensive.
Basically I am waiting before I get DVD made, in case I find a major stuff up in the video like the wrong title with the wrong video, I can correct things now at far cheaper cost than throwing out DVD's and starting all over again. VHS videos can be over copied but production DVD's can not.
I am also saving money to help pay for this when the time comes.
Again, thanks for all the offers of help.

Charles is correct that these COL's completely rely on people purchasing videos so that we can put the money towards the next one.

Kindest regards

Malcolm

Posted:If it can drive costs down, i used to create user interfaces as a graffix designer, and could make flamey DVD menus / 3D rendered animations / DVD artworks that could simply be placed on a CD of pictures and animations that could be used as a source for the people that are to begin the DVD authoring process.
Templates are tasty, especially when they are offered... free!

Posted:Got my copy, thanks Malcolm. I'll watch it tonight with lady Cassandra who has been begging for it since she isn't getting her own tape. :-)

One question though: i thought we would get 1 copy in VHS, and the other one would be sent to us later, either VHS or DVD. Or did i misunderstand?...

Posted:Cass wasn't that bad, you should have heard me :-)

Thanks Bender. We only watched it once and i was quite sleepy but if i remember correctly you have a pretty good style yourself. I have to say that there was a lot of good stuff on the video , probably the best quality overall compared to previous COLs, but there was nothing outstanding on there like Sage was on #2 for example.

I liked Central City Circus folks and Jo Derry the most technically. And there were really nice esthetic pieces by a girls pair, Pele's Element if i remember correctly. Gotta watch it one more time.
