TribeTwelve DVD Overhaul Announcement

So, a lot of things have changed since I first proposed the TribeTwelve DVD. Initially, I had come up with a single two disk set, similar to what Marble Hornets had done with their Season 1 DVD. It later was changed to three disks, but then I had the revamp and the single DVD set idea was not looking viable anymore. So, due to longer video lengths and numerous changes to the future of the series, there's likely going to be at least two sets of DVDs, a Part 1 and a Part 2, each containing two to three disks. As much as I don't want to do it, there will have to be more than one set because it's the only way to include all the content I want for you guys to see without cutting corners. I’m planning for a shit ton of special features: commentary, behind the scenes, bloopers, deleted scenes, tutorials, refurbished original episodes, extra videos, and secret videos, as well as a bunch of other special features. And not to alarm anyone, but there may even be a Part 3 if I still can't fit everything in the first two sets. However, I still think it's too early to judge because I'm not entirely sure of how much I can even fit on a single DVD. When it comes time to actually create the DVDs, I'll do everything in my power to keep the cost and size as low as possible while maintaining the HD video quality and special features, so please bear with me. I'm also worried about cost. It's going to take a lot of money to make these sets, as well as cost you guys to buy. I'll probably do some sort of Kickstarter in the future if need be to help pay for the process. So, I’m thinking the cost per set will range somewhere from $15 - $35, considering all of the work I’ll need to put into making it all, how many actual discs I’ll have in each set, and all the bonus content I want to include. So, for the foreseeable future, the TribeTwelve DVD plan is going to be two sets of two to three DVDs.

Feedback would be very appreciated. This is a big undertaking for me and I'd really like some fan input. I’m still working out exactly what content I plan to put on the DVD, so if you would like to see something in particular or something I haven't mentioned, feel free to message me with your request!
