So, quite a few people have expressed to us here at Standard Action that they found us after our Season 3 Kickstarter was completed, and therefore they had no way of getting their hands on a Season 3 DVD. It’s true! We had our hands full with Kickstarter fulfillment (and still do) and had no immediate plans to put our DVD up for sale after the season was complete. Also, every last penny of our budget was going towards completing the rewards we had already promised to our backers, and so we didn’t feel we had the budget to print a stock of Season 3 DVDs and hold them until they could be sold.

We’ve come up with a solution! We will be creating DVD files for our Kickstarter backers anyway, so we’ve decided to hold a pre-sale for Season 3 DVDs for those fans who didn’t get a chance to back our campaign. That way we can understand the demand, and print only the amount we need, rather than holding stock.

This does mean, however, that this pre-sale may be the only run of Season 3 DVDs we do for the foreseeable future – there’s no promises that we will be putting them up for regular sale. If you want one, we recommend that get in on this!

It’s also important to note that the packaging and art will be slightly different on this pre-order copy than on the Kickstarter copy, but the content will be the same. We’ll be printing and shipping these directly from Canada – our friends at Fan Supported have been amazing in that they will be handling the orders; however we will be doing the fulfillment ourselves. This is why we’ve included shipping cost in the price – it just makes it a whole lot easier for them to handle if a customer decides to order a bunch of products from Fan Supported.

Here’s the link: http://fansupported.net/collections/movies/products/pre-order-standard-action-season-three.

Thank you for your support, and enjoy the rest of Season 3!

VANCOUVER – It looks like famous actor Juju Bentspear has taken finding a new adventuring party into his own hands! The handsome kobold, currently looking for companionship in our newest set of auctions, has been spotted on popular dating website “Tinder.” Bentspear, star of Season 2 and Season 3 of Standard Action, is “just looking for a lady to enjoy the finer things in life with,” in his own words.

With interests ranging from music and working out to “trapping and ambushing adventurers,” how could media darling Juju fail to find a companion for those cold, dark afternoons underground in his den full of shiny things?

The appearance of high-profile celebrities like Bentspear on sites like Tinder does beg for an examination of the current challenges single creatures are finding in today’s modern dating world. How is it that a kobold of this obviously great physical condition, evident sensitivity and huge talent is not able to find companionship through the “usual” kobold channels? What has happened to LFG boards, meeting someone in a tavern, or the romance of falling for your fellow trap-maker? Is it time to take a sober look at the reptilian dating scene, and break down the social boundaries? Who’s to say that adorable Juju’s lady love couldn’t be mammalian? Avian? How about both? Owlbear, anyone?

For those interested in knowing more about Juju Bentspear, visit his auction listing here, or learn more about him on his Facebook page. And if you see this handsome face on Twitter, be sure to swipe left. Err, right. Whatever.

(Also, thanks Greg.)

One of our Kickstarter rewards for Standard Action Season 3 backers was extra audio files – up to 30 seconds of extra audio, of your choice, recorded by one of our lead actors – Tara, Joanna, Edwin or Daniel.

When we sent out our surveys, we received a lot of fantastic requests for audio, and we will be sending out the first batch of files today! There are a few straggler files that are taking a bit of extra work, but they should be sent out by tomorrow at the latest.

If you are a “Bard’s Tale” backer or higher, and you want to claim your extra audio, but you did not specify the audio you wanted on your Kickstarter survey, you won’t receive a file in this batch. Send us an email at watchstandardaction@gmail.com, or update your survey to tell us the details of your order. We have voicemail messages going out, game introductions… even songs!

Enjoy!

Reaching the End of Standard Action Season 3! http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com/2015/04/11/reaching-the-end-of-standard-action-season-3/ http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com/2015/04/11/reaching-the-end-of-standard-action-season-3/#comments Sun, 12 Apr 2015 03:51:12 +0000 http://standardaction.zombieorpheus.com/?p=3359 We are reaching the end of Standard Action, Season 3!

We are reaching the end of Standard Action, Season 3!

In a previous post a few weeks ago, we let everyone know that we would be launching a season of twelve episodes, and we’ve just launched Episode 3.9, so we’re on the final stretch. We’d like to take a sec to lay out for you the schedule of our final three episodes in the season, and touch a bit more on what’s coming up for Kickstarter fulfillment.

The keen-eyed fans out there will have noticed that we listed the launch date for Episode 3.10 in the YouTube description for Episode 3.9, and it was April 28th! We had a one-week break for our post team to have a rest for Easter, and now we’re on track for the last three releases:

Episode 3.10 – April 28th, 2015
Episode 3.11 – May 12th, 2015
Episode 3.12 – May 26th, 2015

We hope you’ve been enjoying the season so far; thank you to our Kickstarter backers for making it possible.

Speaking of the Kickstarter, let’s take a look at a fulfillment update for our rewards!

– Season 1 and Season 2 regular and Special Edition DVDs have been printed and are ready to be signed (in some cases) and ship. As we didn’t budget an early round of shipping into our Kickstarter, we will be holding onto these until we have Season 3 DVDs printed, and we’ll send everything to you at once. Season 1 and Season 2 Special Edition DVDs will be going up for sale on the FanSupported.net site in order to support our post-production and fulfillment effort, and this will happen before you receive your copy. As these discs are Add-Ons to our Kickstarter, this is unavoidable. The main perk is Season 3, and Kickstarter backers will definitely continue to get access to that before anyone else. We promise you will have a Season 3 DVD in your hands before it is available to purchase anywhere.

– The Standard Action Card Game is in the mail being sent to us right now, hopefully in its final form! If everything is a-OK, we’ll be putting in an order for the games we need to ship to you.

– Many of you requested autographs on your items! We’ll be having a signing party just as soon as we get everything in hand to sign.

– Joanna spent much of her time in LA, between attending Hollyweb Festival and the Indie Series Awards, sitting down to the Edda feature backstory, and it is off to a strong start.

– We have been in touch with James from Cheapass Games, who will be making the Edda and Fernando Button Men! He has received all the assets, and things are moving forward. They’re going to feature unique pictures of our cast, which haven’t been seen anywhere else.

– The Pathfinder module has been adjusted and adapted from all the playtests, and is nearly ready to head into layout.

– We have just received the last of the extra audio files from our actors! If you requested an extra audio file, and specified in your Kickstarter survey the details of what it should be, you should be receiving it over the next week in your Copy folders, along with the rest of your digital perks. If you ever have trouble accessing your digital perks, please contact us at watchstandardaction@gmail.com, and we’ll help you get to them.

– The extra video clips are in pre-production!

Also, keep an eye on our Standard Auctions page! We’re selling off some special props and costumes we won’t need anymore, so watch the posts to get your hands on something unique from the world of Standard Action!

This has been your Standard Action update. Smell you later, Actioneers!
