This really sounds interesting! Good for you for putting this together! Have you ever thought about getting some of your videos up on youtube? Would that work?
I think I'm going to run them on Yahoo video so I can embed them on the site and then I don't have to worry about stream lining them and keeping it all with yahoo may be easier for me.

I think I'm going to do a 13 week series and then rerun it through the summer after the turkey season videos run out. I have enough for for total of 26 weeks @ 28 min and 30 seconds per show if I run the commercials, if I cut the commercials then only about 20 min shows for the 26 weeks.

Basicly I started or tried to start what is now called WEBVISION or Webisodes LOL about 8 or 9 years ago but at that time it wasn't real popular, and the sponsors only wanted us to run the show on TNN, Outdoor Channel, The Sportsman Channel, The Mens Channel or ESPN on Saturday Mornings, the problem is you can't run a 00:28;30 show on product, it takes alot of money to air a show about 5k per show to start, that only covers cost, not getting anything for your time, I had Prime time on Thursday and Sunday on The Sportsman Channel for 52 weeks in 2001 but was unable to collect from sponsors, seems they come calling when they want you to use their products but when money becomes a issue the tuck tail and run the other way, Getting on the BIG BOY SPONSOR budget was a trick in itself, you have to compete with longtimers like Realtree, Mossy Oak, Primos most of the shows you see on these channels are self funded, self funding is a whole nother story. I think its funny how things change so much in just a few short years with the popularity of Webvision/Webisodes.

As I look back even my Bow Sponsor is now paying residuals to the Pro Shooters and they said they would never do this. The deal is you WIN you get paid by them on top of your winnings check. I should call them and ask for BACK PAY!.

I droped a tewelve year sponsor to shoot for the one I have now back in 1999, the company was newer I think maybe 1st year when I came aboard with them, to shoot their equipment.
Free equipment dosn't pay the bills for going to these shoots. I made most of it up in other sponsors and kept quiet about the deal I had with the Bow Company. I guess time has finally caught up to me.
