"This is the Sea" available as digital download
Wednesday, December 16, 2009

"This is the Sea" is now available as a digital download for the bargain price of under 6 Euros - just in time for Christmas!!

I'm not sure how you wrap up a digital download, but you could always put the download information in an envelope for someone, or buy it for yourself - after all we should spoil ourselves at Christmas aswell!!

Or perhaps you could download it and burn it to a DVD for someone?

Then again, if you'd rather have the physical disc in it's original cover with the disc artwork then you can buy them from the Cackle TV store, or from your local kayaking and outdoor shop. Remember you can save money if you buy more than 1 DVD.

I'm interested in feedback about digital downloads. The recommended price seems a bit cheap to me, but then maybe it appeals to people who wouldn't pay more for a physical DVD?

Should I make the other DVDs available as digital downloads? What about selling individual films from the DVDs? For example I could sell the award winning film of my circumnavigation of New Zealand? This is part of "This is the Sea 4", but I could offer just the NZ film for a lower price?

I think this is a great idea. Although the price may sound low, a low price is an excellent way of spreading your movies (or music, if you're a musician) without "wasting" it on overhead. Besides, a physical disc is a lot less environmentally friendly and if you're like me (i.e have lots of computers etc. about, really, it's got to do with work, honestly ;-) ) you'd rather have a downloaded file than another DVD.

I am not so sure....
How does the one-time cost of making a disc compare with the 'exploding' world-wide continuous (server/PC) hard-disk spinning... Just a(nother) thought ;-))

Well, I'm not sure how "green" it is either, but I definitely think you should make all your work available by download.

If a segment will stand on it's own, sure, make that available separately, but I wouldn't break up the individual bits of each edition.

I would love to download the latest TITS4 film which I confess I have not seen yet but am looking forward to. I also lost my DVD of the first one, so a download would be a nice replacement.

Price? Somewhere around $10-15 would seem about right, especially for a 2-disc set.

What about an outtake reel?

Let me know when I can d/l TITS4!

Take care!

Superb idea. I've often wished I could download your work and be sure you got the profit. Now TITS is happily ensconced in my iTunes library!
I also think that making your films available via downloads is probably the best way to access the teenager-20something market. They live on-line.
