I’m canvassing opinion on possibly re-releasing some (or all) of the ‘One Chance Series’ Member videos from 2012-14. Now, when these were made they were given the title ‘One Chance’ because I wanted people to take the release seriously at the time, and I really didn’t expect to make them available again. Most of them did pretty well and I was content in that decision. However, it was 8+ years ago and I know from emails I’ve received in the years since that people who found us after 2014 have missed out on them. My attitude was always a bit “bad luck” because I wanted to stay true to the ideal that you only had one chance to get them, however tough that stance seemed.
Things in the last 9 months have softened this a bit. Mostly because I’m running out of new videos and am unsure when I can film again. I’m optimistic with the vaccinations taking place that we will be allowed to film in March or April, which would just about save my bacon with fast turnaround. I must be mindful though, that everyone I work with is under 35 and won’t get the vaccine for themselves until probably much later, so that may still limit my options for a while, I don’t know.
I’d be interested to hear opinions on doing these re-releases. If you already own the videos they wouldn’t be replacing a new release, just buying time. There would be NO member gift attached to these re-releases as that isn’t fair on people who bought them in the past. If you didn’t get them first time, and want them, do you know which one’s would be of most interest? I’m highly unlikely to release all in one go. I’ve got videos of: Angel, Athena, Bluebird, Celestia, Miss Freedom, Lady Victory, and Shadowstar. A VERY classic line-up. We shot 17 of them.
I genuinely dislike saying one thing and doing another, but I’m prepared to ignore that on the basis that when I made the videos it was 7-9 years ago, and I could not have foreseen a situation where I wouldn’t actually be allowed to film. Choosing not to is one thing I could anticipate, but being barred from it wasn’t. Let me know your thoughts if you have any. I will try to answer as many as I can over the weekend or until comments die out.
