When I click on the link, it brings me to a black page with a white lettered word in the center that says 'back.' When I click on that, it brings me to the list of the videos.

Is it just not loading up automatically on my browser?

Thats strange, it works everytime i view it, and many others have seen it as well. It might take a few moments to load depending on your connection speed. Also, sometimes you have to press the play button, it wont just play automatically on some computers. You can also view it on the home page, at the top right hand column.

I viewed the source code and went directly here http://www.unitedenvironment.com/A%20Sli....ser.wmv (http://www.unitedenvironment.com/A%20Slice%20of%20Halloween%20Teaser.wmv) and it worked. Just in case others ran into the same problem I did.

Oh this is a great teaser. You guys are extremely talented. I can tell you put a lot of time into this. For others reading this. Could you tell us a little behind the scenes.

How long does it take to put your shows together? From filming to editing?

Any interesting behind the scene stories on this specific video?

Great work again !

Thanks so much for the kind words. This one was a total pain in the @$$ to edit. Well, lets see, For starters, I forgot my jigsaw, so we had to make all the cuts for the guillotine with a chainsaw. We actually got temporarily stuck on the roof, we put this huge spider down the building, and wrapped web all over the place, only problem is we ended up tangling the ladder in the display. About 50 ambulances must have went by that day, which drove us nuts for filming. The guillotine we build is actually based of a real french guillotine that was used in the early 1800's.

As for putting it all together, filming takes as long as the particular project. If a wall takes 7 days to build, filming takes the same, this only took a day which was nice for once. However editing this one is taking much longer, its actually not completed yet. We had filmed two others already prior to this one and have them edited, we just want to get this one out in time for halloween. So far, editing is already at about 25 hours. Now that isnt really normal, the others where a heck of a lot less, its just tough picking and choosing what to put into this one. It will definately be ready for halloween though, and for sale on DVD as well, with a couple special features.

Have you thought about how you will price and market your dvd?

well, they will each be priced at $10.00, since the actual show only does run a half hour. Bonus Features on some may cause price to go up a bit, but episode 1 is $10.00. For the halloween episode we have been considering releasing both a standard version and a special edition. Standard will be $10.00 but we have not come to a price for the special edition because we have not completed all the special features.

as far as marketing, they will be for sale at the trade show we are performing at, as well as online within two weeks. Our store will have dvds for sale, shirts, hats, etc. We are actually trying to setup a hurricane relief effort through our store where we donate so much of our sales to the relief fund.

For now thats it, after the show we will be looking into other outlets.

Are you keeping track of download viewers of your show? You could then use this information to help attract sponsors in the future.

Well since the debut of the teaser for our halloween episode, we have recieved about 3,600 views. So I hope the number keeps growing, especially when we debut the actual episode. I dont think that number is too bad considering we have yet to really advertise anywhere. I also hope that this trade show in two weeks helps us out a great deal as well.

This was just very creative. I liked the usage of the black and white style. It made it seem like a horror movie teaser.
