Hi Paul,

I am not an experienced videographer. But I am good with technology, quick to learn things, creative, and willing to work hard to improve.

I have helped with other peoples projects including my wife’s kickstarter, and have experience with theater directing, lighting and sound production - some of those skills transfer.

If we went forward with this idea, I would spend the next three months leveling up to be ready for the experience!

I hope you might strongly consider the possibility. :)

Cheers

Aww man! Thats too bad. The atc topics and the indepth nature of the pdc for engineers, teachers etc seem wonderful and a totally next level experience from the 2017 version.

Well, hopefully at least some pieces of all those great things are released out to those who cant make it!

I totally want to say we would come film if you wanted that. Just to make sure all of that golden information gets recorded. No clue how we would make that happen... but where there is a will...

Cheers

So, I love the videos and information here!

Except that its super challenging for me to watch long videos. Most of my available learning time is spent in the car. Ive got two little kids, so sitting to watch 2 hours of video is next to impossible. The only ways Ive been able to do it is to watch in small chunks. I bet that many people here would find audio an easier medium many days compared to video.

So to that end, is it possible to provide download versions or audio versions of the streaming video links? Or perhaps there is already a way to do that? I understand that some information would be lost in audio format. But better to lose a bit then to totally miss out on the opportunity to learn.

I understand that it is work to convert videos to audio tracks, or provide download versions etc. But, I would be happy to be the one to do the work for everybody and then be able to repost audio links for download. Ive done conversions like that before. It takes time. Most of the time is as it processes. Set it up and let it run.

As I think- ( that is if you agreed to go through with it) it probably makes the most sense to peovide audio download links and video streaming links. Less chance of the videos being passed on outside of a persons purchase.

Let me know if thats something you want help with.

Thanks for all that all of you do

Im hoping that the videos from these courses will be all put together like the 2017 one and sold to us folks that couldnt make it. I will be the first in line as soon as it becomes available!

This is shaping up so well :) very exciting!

A couple of thoughts - is there a time frame in which the gift codes need to be redemed? Or a timeframe in which the extra gob of videos and such need to be watched?

Also when it comes to engaging people about the kickstarter - I would suggest that two days before the kickstarter you put a countdown clock on permies for everybody to see with an ad or link to the first 48 hour pack of goodies. Then during the kickstarter have every ad on the site be about the kickstarter for 48 hours. Also, perhaps all the things in the digital market that are included in the kickstarter should only be available through the kickstarter for a period of time. As in somebody goes to purchase the pdc/ atc download of 177 hours - but instead are redirected to the kickstarter.

Perhaps for the first 12 hours or something all of permies should redirect to kickstarter. You said before that something like 10% open your monthly email. Maybe some of these ideas will help with conversion. Also, perhaps the announcement email just come directly from paul wheaton vs paul wheatons monthlyish email.

Whoo!

Love all these suggestions!

Am definately going to work on perfecting our veggie broth and preserved citrus peels.

Will absolutely try to light a bonfire with an orange peel. That sounds like magic.
