The most common question I got (of course) during the PAX East showing of the 1-hour preview/cut of GET LAMP was “So, when’s the DVD coming out?” with a slight variation of “When is it finished?”
Unfortunately, I simply can’t predict a date. All I can do is the following things:
- Be transparent about what I’m up to
- Give frequent status updates
- Provide information related to the production and where it’s at
- Give you things to see and read before the DVDs arrive
A lot of what’s left comes down to smoothing up the three additional featurettes (BEDQUILT, INFOCOM, GAMEBOOKS), and the three branches of the GET LAMP DVD mix. The extras are basically done, the menus generally put together, and the subtitles, while not completely ready, are in very good shape. It’s just a lot of work, really, but the end is very close.
As before, if you’re uncomfortable waiting, and you bought a copy, please contact me for a refund. I do not want discomfort. But all I can do is promise that what you’ll have at the end is the best I can do for you, and what the subject deserves.
I will be scheduling some showings of the PAX Mix (with a few changes the showing showed I should make) in the coming weeks/months, and I’ll let you know about them.
