Re: Upcoming Productions for March/April/May

Well, to be fair, you have received answers from two of the heavy-hitters in the Trek fan-film community explicitly stating why they think setting up a calendar for fan film releases is a patently bad idea. There's no need to get sniffly about it.

Granted, it was a nice idea, but the guys are right -- there are too many overly sensitive, egregiously self-entitled fans out there who would kick up a storm if --God forbid!-- someone not meet a deadline. It's not worth the aggravation. I've been following most of the fan films here for several years and each one of them has experienced the inglorious outrage of a fan who just couldn't put it together that the free video they were promised to see is going to be late because of real-life concerns. Hell hath no fury for a Trek fan that has to wait longer than originally told for his free fan film.

This doesn't mean the idea is bad, it doesn't mean it's the end of your thread, and it doesn't mean there aren't other fan productions out there who might be interested in such a concept.
