I'm not sure I'd interpret that as a blanket offer to burn as many copies as you like and hand out to friends and relatives. I don't view this as any different from buying a regular DVD. Could you buy a copy and give it to the person of your choice? Absolutely! Could you buy a copy, make multiple copies of that, and hand them out at will? Um, no.
Well, yeah, when you put it that way,*I* sound like a pirate, ee-yarrr.
I guess I thought the $10-$15 for a download was to recoup / mitigate the multiple-copy thing. But I don't even really count that as reliable information anyway.
Personally, I'm so excited about this project that if I have the opportunity for both DVD and download-to-burn, I'm going to buy both, and give some as gifts.
Then, show off your home-fab’d DVD to your friends, give it as a stocking stuffer, or slip it into a holiday card. Burning, labeling, and packaging disks at home is something, as Trace says, “Fits our do-it-yourself-aesthetic beautifully.”
But interpret that as you will.
And Hugh? I'll publicly apologize for the passive-aggressive stuff aimed at you. I'm sorry. Beyond that, I'll PM you.
He is explicitly talking about the FREE holiday short.
Later we will also be offering the e-mail club a chance to download a free “Christmas Present” before anyone else in the form of a short holiday film. This way you can try our “Download to burn” process and see just how fun and easy it really is. Then, show off your home-fab’d DVD to your friends, give it as a stocking stuffer, or slip it into a holiday card.
It looks like they want to use the short so people can see how easy it will be for burning your own...
Well, because the only one I really want is Missile to the Moon, I can get the two Stooges ones from Legend. I have all the rest. I just like the idea of being able to play a DVD anywhere at anytime on anyone's machine, ya know?
And there was some cryptic message over there about "we might change our minds about wanting to try VOD next week", which sounds like there may be more of these coming available...
