Sellout puns ahoy

UPDATE: Let's play Amnesia is back! We'll be starting at 7:30 EST

------------------------------

In only 48 hours, we managed to sell one thousand DVDs.

Two days. The whole stock.

Gone.

I can't even comprehend that. Your generosity for our little internet project gives me such a warm, fuzzy feeling that I think if I were to open my mouth too wide a kitten would fall out.

Our producer jumped ahead of schedule and ordered 1000 more DVDs. Not sure when they'll be ready. From what I'm being told, there shouldn't be that long of a wait if you didn't manage to get one of the first runs.

While we were busy being all excited, Joseph was quick to ask me when we're next scheduled to do some actual shooting. In all the hubbub, I forgot that there's still a ton of work left to be done on our end. We're officially scheduled, according to Joseph, for "probably tonight when I get off work". I don't have classes today due to my school's Honors Day, but of course Joseph is pulling a double. What a buzzkill. I'm going to try and enlist a person or two to go out and help me shoot the easier stuff while I wait.

Typically when I get people to help with easy shots, it's to make me look less crazy pointing a camera at myself in public.

  1. Is there any way of knowing whether or not I managed to get one of the first 1000?

  3. I accept Steam invites, but I've been so busy lately that I'm rarely on there. Still, if you want to add me, I'm WineCannon. Hopefully there will be more time to play TF2 soon.

  4. I used to be embarrassed going out in public with cameras. By now I've done it so often that it doesn't even cross my mind. :P

  6. I'm surprised you are still self-conscious at all while pointing a camera at yourself in public. : )

  7. I'm really glad you get that warm fuzzy feeling, because you've created this cool internet project that's been great entertainment and fun for so many people. Thank you. Relay this to the rest of the Marble Hornets team, too. Thank you.

  9. $11.95 times 1000 in 48 hours? That's amazing, even if money is not the biggest motivator at all.

    Congrats!

  13. Do you think the 2nd batch of DVDs will be out before May 18th?

  14. @ThatOneChick: Yes.

    Not sure if I'm first or second batch. Don't really care, either - it's amazing that you guys sold a thousand in two days. Heck, you guys sell four digits in discs in the time it takes me to do an essay...

  15. Troy, I ordered mine (and I believe the money went on my card) but I never got an order confirmation sent to me--is this supposed to happen?

  16. Troy--would it be possible to get an interview with you about the whole Marble Hornets phenomena? I'm trying to write an article for it for a journalism class. I can do phone, email, anything please email me or something. I really hope I can work this out with you!
