Help Fandom get a BSG-FedCon DVD

From the skiffy forum today...if you are interested in a copy of this DVD, send these guys an email to pre-order. When they get at least 150 pre-order emails, they will go to press. I want one! *g*

ETA: When you send your email, be sure to specify 1) that you want "the special BSG DVD" and 2) your NTSC or PAL preference; see comments section for more details.

What's this about?
In mid-April, Jamie Bamber, Leah Cairns, Nicki Clyne, Michelle Forbes and Mary McDonnell were among the 18 star guests at Europe's biggest annual Trek/genre convention, FedCon XVII - The Lost World, which was held in Bonn, Germany. Attended by 5000 geeks from 22 countries, it was probably the biggest BSG party the non-US world has ever seen.

Every year, the guys at Intex Digital Sound produce a 2-DVD set covering many on-stage and off-stage happenings of the FedCon weekend. But this year, there could be more! Paying tribute to the massive BSG focus of this year's con (and to the show's rabid fanbase), they plan to release a special 2-DVD set featuring more than five hours of BSG panels/interviews.


What will be on the DVD's?
Eight slightly abridged Q&A panels and four interviews:
  • Jamie Bamber's solo panel
  • Jamie Bamber and Mary McDonnell's joint panel
  • Leah Cairns's solo panel
  • Leah Cairns and Nicki Clyne's joint panel
  • Nicki Clyne's solo panel
  • Michelle Forbes's first solo panel
  • Michelle Forbes's second solo panel
  • Mary McDonnell's solo panel
  • an interview with Jamie Bamber
  • an interview with Leah Cairns and Nicki Clyne
  • an interview with Michelle Forbes
  • an interview with Mary McDonnell

Yeah, but... what does "slightly abridged" mean?
Each panel was around 45 minutes (=six hours total). Hence, even though both DVD's will be packed, cuts are necessary. The producers promise the panels will be edited very carefully, cutting each of them down to around 40 minutes. (For example, some Cain-related questions were more or less asked during both Michelle's panels.)



Squee! How do I get my hands on that?
First of all, the 2-DVD set won't get made unless there's at least 150 people who are interested. The price would be 19,50 euros ($30), excluding shipping. If you would like to buy the DVD's, please send an e-mail to fedcon@intexsound.de (no worries, those guys speak English wink.gif). Once they have 50 pre-orders, they'll start working on the material. And once the 150-people threshold is reached, each and everyone will be notfied via e-mail, after which individual paying arrangements can be discussed (credit card, PayPal etc.).

As a courtesy, please mention you learned about this offer via Caprica City (we guys are doing all the promo, but we won't get residuals, of course).

Oh wow, what a pretty post! Thanks so much for plugging the project here. The response from the international fandom has been incredible. You guys are all fantastic!

I sooo want this DVD to materialize...

ProgGrrl said...

Me too Pedda...you know there is one other thing I just realized: will the FedCon folks make an All-Region unlocked version? Will we be able to play it on American NTSC video equipment? (Because aren't Europeans using the PAL format)

Pedda said...

I doubt there will be a region code. As for the NTSC/PAL issue, I don't think it would be a problem, but I just sent a message to the producers.

FYI, they have two different DVDs, one is the regular FedCon17-DVD and the other is the full BSG panels and interviews. As the BSG content is truncated on the regular DVD, make sure you say you want the special BSG DVD. Nice folks though, they responded to my e-mail very quickly. Here's hoping I can get a copy!

1. If you send an e-mail to Intex Sound asking for the special BSG DVD, you're not just sending an e-mail, but it's a legal pre-order that becomes effective as soon as they reach the 150-people threshold.

2. The DVD won't have a regional code.

3. Due to the differences between PAL (Europe) and NTSC (Japan/US), two different sets will be produced, and every purchaser will be asked which version he wants.

Thanks so much guys for the extra details.

I received a response about an hour ago and, at that time, they had already received 60 emails. I'm hoping they reach their goal by this week. :)

Ghost in the Wired said...

I'm not fond of the idea of pre-ordering from a place I've never heard of (especially after Pedda's last comment), so I wanted to know what happens after they reach the 150 mark? Will they continue to make these DVD's for others to order regularly afterwards, or is this just for those that pre-order them?

ProgGrrl said...

@ghost: My understanding is that they need at least 150 people to commit before they can produce the DVD. I had assumed that after the 150, they would continue to sell additional copies. Perhaps you can email to ask them?

(Pedda, please chime in here if you know better?)

Pedda said...

@ghost: The producers are not some backyard guys, but they are a business with lots of professional experience
http://www.intexsound.de/ReferencesGer/referencesengmain.html
who have been tasked with producing FedCon DVD for the last two years by the firm that runs the FedCon series.

Yes, the BSG special DVD's won't get made unless at least 150 people committ. But of course they'd be happy to seel more than 150 copies. Once the threshold is reached, everyone will get an e-mail, informing them about the successful campaign, that production starts now... and discussing pay arrangements.

Please note it'll take many weeks to produce the DVD master.

Hope this helps. Feel free to ask more questions. :)

Ghost in the Wired said...

Thanks for the reply, Pedda. I was in no way thinking they were "some backyard guys," but am always cautious to trust anything on the internet without some prior experience and I don't really like pre-orders anyways. I hope that they get those 150 pre-orders. :)

Pedda said...

I completely share your feelings with regards to internet orders.

Btw, so far they received 90+ pre-orders. :)
