UN-CARING AUDIENCE????

I felt I HAD to clear this in public..

A faithful buyer, Fred Anderson at Av Maniacs who also runs the great blog http://ninjadixon.blogspot.com/ was hurt by my words "UN-CARING AUDIENCE" in my previous post about the hassles of getting some new films.

Ok, DEAR Fred and everyone else hurt by my words...

PLEASE UNDERSTAND THAT "UN-CARING" STRICTLY REFERS TO PEOPLE WHO DO NOT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT MY DVD's!!!

I'd be nuts if I called my CARING buyers UN-CARING, for God's sake guys!

I was just talking about people who call themselves cult/trash/pulp/b-movie/mondo fans BUT prefer to either download my (or anybody's) releases or just read about them and NEVER EVER buy them.

I'm a PROUD fan because I have spent a fortune and have got not even my cash back, let alone any profit.
I've made sacrifices, I've given blood sweat and tears too for this kind of films and I find it absurd that only a few dozens of people THROUGHOUT THE WHOLE PLANET buy my dvd's.

I mean, I could just release 500 copies of PAINT GOING DRY or GRASS GROWING and I BET there would 500 wackos who would buy those 500 copies.
And there are NOT 500 curious "fans" to check those turkish films?

I mean, I can see 100's, 1000's of blogs, sites, magz, whatever, with millions of people participating and obviously eager to experience this kind of films, ok?
BUT WHERE THE HELL ARE THEY WHEN A DVD COMES OUT?

Thanks Bill, I'm happy to read these words and I believe you.

I love your dvds and it just would have broken my heart if actually meant what I was believing you meant.

Sincererly,
Fred

I understand what Onar meant. I'm sure he has many of these Supermen and 3 Dev sitting around for ever. Lots of fans mention but won't ever buy. Not really his fault. This is all a learning process. I've read what he said before and can relate to it.

I ran a shop with clothes and DVDs. This was for a TV channel so good reach. Busy sites. It had Japan imports that no one had outside of Japan. We only managed to get as we begged and we had the contracts with them.

Really good stuff. There'd seemingly be lots of fans but actually only sold a handful. Publicised them a lot. Even reduced making loss but still the same. Shame as the more bought the more variety could be brought in.

Hello, I sent you a mail using the form on the website, did you get it? (About shipping to Norway)

RUDIE,
I'm afraid I haven't received any email regarding shipping to Norway.
Please email me directly at hellasvi@hol.gr
Thanks

Onar, I'm not seeing many DVD reviews on big sites like Eccentric Cinema or Av Maniacs. Maybe you should consider giving them review copies (maybe dvd-r so it's cheaper for you if that is legal). Just thinking you could have better promotion like that.
