Get Lamp Pre-Ordering Now Open, with Special Discount

Posted: December 10th, 2009 | Author: | Filed under: production | 13 Comments »

Here’s the big news: GET LAMP is going to be released in March of 2010.

Right now I’m focusing on editing, features, and packaging for what will be a 2-DVD set. I expect there will be a digital release and other formats as well, but I have no details on that at this time. In fact, there are many, many more details to come. The main reason I’m mentioning this at all right now is I am extending a special offer to “the fans”, as it were.

The documentary 2-DVD set will be $40. This I already know.

If you pre-order it now, however, it will cost you $30, a 25% discount.

The page for pre-ordering does not have much information on the packaging, what’s in it, what the whole thing is about. This is intentional; partially because some information is in flux, and partially because this offer is for the people who have been supporting me and helping me over the past few years. For these folks, they intend to buy it basically sight unseen; they just want the word. Well, here’s the word. And that’s why the discount is there.

I’m closing up the discounted price at the end of December. After that, it goes to $40 as I put up screenshots, packaging shots as they become available, and other information.

So if you were waiting for your chance, my wonderful friends and supporters, this is the time to pre-order.

Thank you.

    Any chance of selling out? Or will you print to meet demand?

    Have you decided if/how you’re going to release an HD version?

    I wonder how expensive it would be to distribute the movie inside of a cardboard box with a short intro book in the front and a plastic case containing the disks and feelies… I would gladly display it on the shelf next to the other 37 such boxes I own. ;)

    Perhaps a ‘collector’s edition’ for another $10 would help to cover the production expense? (I can’t remember if this was an option on the survey or not.)

    Great news! Will put a news on our site.

    Will the DVDs be DVD-Rs (blue surface) or regular pressed/mastered DVDs (silver)?

    Wow. Can’t wait. I was a member of the Adventurer’s Club, but my address has changed. I sent you the new 3 months ago. Any chance you can confirm you’ve got it on file?

    I’ll have to re-watch BBS in preparation for this one.
