ACTORS TAKE NOTE!
I'm determined to get
all of this content online, and the first batch will be posted in just
a few weeks. I am now prepared to take some minor legal risks
order to get these videos on the web, but I'd much rather have all, 100%, of
the cast members' agreement beforehand that the videos can be posted on
the internet. That said, while mostly this has not been problematic, a few of you are proving impossible
to contact, much less get a signature from, which means I may be forced
at some point, to modify and then upload the videos without 100% of your signed digital talent
release forms. That's risky for me (I could be sued) and for
you (you might be in an online video without knowing it) but your
(won't name names but some of you have been unresponsive) persistent
lack of willingness to respond to my requests for a signature pretty
much brought us to this point. If you're unreachable, can't or won't sign, or whatever, I will try to excise you from the project in some way, depending on the situation maybe removing scenes, or if the scene is plot essential, possibly crediting you under a pseudonym (fake name) and blurring out your face a little. If there were some case like this where someone major whose role is critical to the video, and they won't or can't sign, the video might never make it online at all.
Another issue has been hard drives that are nonfunctional as a result of the far-too-fast move from Texas to Pennsylvania. I a at the moment lacking 40% of my data, and we'll see what can and can't be recovered, but... some major in-progress video projects [about seven of them] like 'Fortress Siege 2' & 'Tinyville Disaster 2' look like they may be utterly crippled by this if the data is not successfully recovered. This doesn't even consider other efforts hanging in the balance, like some game fan art projects, and some of my own game dev efforts which now might be doomed to never see the light of day. I don't know how costly the data recovery will be in practice, or if it's possible at all... but it is likely to be a cost in the hundreds or thousands of dollars at this point, and for now I'm not sure it can be fully covered.
This said, anything that got finished prior to the move is pretty much safe; all my completed videos basically are archived on flash or SD card media that made it unharmed.
Any assistance with regards to this is extremely helpful; I particularly advise you all to visit My Itch.IO page and buy something there if you want to help.

All of my videos will be online by late 2018 one way or another, and
many of them much sooner than that.
I also am working on a string of new projects in addition to the old ones. They are
listed here by progress:
Production is complete, partway through post production:
"1999", "Globe", "Averting Apocalypse", "Tinyville Disaster 2", "Real Americans", "Fortress Siege 2", "The Annoying Magician!"
Production partially complete:
"Fairbanks Field Trip", "House
Trek: The Next Generation Seasons 1 & 2"
Production not yet underway, but a script and plans exist:
The video projects, as they're revised and cleaned up, are starting to be posted on
