Oh, my, where to begin?

We've been having conversations since C2E2 (see our videos here) about what it takes to adequately provide coverage of events in the way we'd like. It takes a lot of resources behind the scenes.
We also talked about having transparency in letting our supporters know how we spend the money we have set aside for such endeavors. So...here we go:


THE SHOPPING LIST:

~ Travel & Lodging expenses: it would be nice to have the event pay for us to be there, but sadly this is not the case. Hotels are the biggest expense of these two
~ Meals: protein, lots of protein
~ Parking: several times we've been hit with the fact that parking -- even at the hotel!! -- costs extra. Big cities are expensive...
~ Camera gear: this includes memory cards, cables, tripods, monopods, clips to hold cables in place, lights, brackets for lights, and lenses
~ Sound gear: microphones, cables, headsets, headphones, earbuds, digital audio recorders, intercom gear, and mic flags (those are the boxes with our logo wrapped around the microphones)
~ Computer equipment: our main computer, the Dark Tower, is thirteen years old, so we're saving up money to build a custom tower to suit our needs for both video production and live broadcasting. This includes three monitors, hard drives, power, and LOTS of USB ports...
~ Promotions: let's face it, if we're covering an event, you need to know we're covering an event. We need to be able to get the word out by advertising our content via social media and other platforms.
~ New Shirts: when we came back in 2019, we updated the brand. Now we have a new logo, which means we need to get new shirts with the new logo
~ New Business Cards: same as the shirts; the site URL and social media haven't changed, but the logo is new. We need to get it out there more.

~ Coffee. Lots of coffee.

Sunday May 3rd on "Chillin' With Pineapple" Mr. Boss discusses the abuse going on over on YouTube, and why it's becoming more and more likely that we will opt for another alternative.

Greetings, all!
Just a quick update to let everyone know that since March 15, SciFi4Me TV has been covering the daily changes in comicon schedules. As we get information via e-mail, social media posts, and our monitoring other lists tracking these changes, we're sharing information on conventions that are cancelling or rescheduling due to the quarantine all over the world. 

Stay tuned for more, and thank you for your support!

Adding one item to the shopping list: a registration with StreamYard so that we can white-list our broadcast when we use that tool.

We're constantly exploring new ways we can bring our content to you, and StreamYard broadcasting software allows for some flexibility that we don't get with OBS. But the free version only allows us to stream to one destination, and there's big SY logo in the corner. Having a paid account will remove that so we can have our own logo there, and it will let us stream to more than one site on the web.

OK. So...the merch is undergoing some revision. Mainly because Zazzle seems to think that "Star Wars" as a tag means you've somehow violated a copyright...

We're in talks with a new vendor to offer new mugs with the same (and additional!) designs. As soon as we have details, we'll share those.

Plus: we've got a few t-shirt design ideas...

Well!
We've been away for a while, but we're going to be making efforts to update this a little more frequently from now on. 

Star Wars Celebration has come and gone, and we picked up a LOT of new subscribers over on our YouTube channel because we were the only channel streaming from inside the event on Thursday. That's right. Not even the SW team was streaming that day, so we managed to attract quite a bit of attention that day. 

Since then, we made a trip out to TopCon Pop Expo in Topeka, KS for our very first appearance there. It's a smaller event, but it's a good connection for us to have, and we plan to be back next year.

We've put in our applications for C2E2 2020 in Chicago. And we've added MeWe, Minds, and Gab to our collection of social media platforms -- just in case Facebook takes a nosedive...

And starting in November, we'll have a slightly altered schedule for our shows. We'll post that in a separate update.

More to follow!
