Announcement Time

Oh man. We're finally ready to go.



The Marble Hornet Season 2 DVDs will go on sale over on the website this Thursday, February 16. They will be the same price as the Season 1 DVD ($11.95 + S&H). We've been working on getting everything in order for it for the past couple of months, and are really pleased with how it looks.

Here's what's on it:
  • Entry #27-52 and all season 2 ToTheArk videos. Since this season was a lot longer than than the first, the entries now span both discs.
  • Full commentary by me, Joseph, and Tim. It's not as drunk as last time, so it's a bit more informative.
  • Blooper reel edited together by me this time. No duck quack.
  • Deleted version of Entry #37 with a quick introduction by Joseph and I. (The entry itself isn't canon)
  • Setting up the shot used in Entry #45 and the first kind of unorganized "rehearsal" of it.
  • The "foley work" of getting the flashlight-hitting-skull sound effect used in Entry #33. "Work" is used very lightly here.
  • A timelapse of one of the masks being made.
  • All the season 2 tweets.
  • And an extra special surprise that I may or may not have already mentioned on this blog.
(And to those wondering, the creator of this season's fantastic DVD art was the talented Mr. Keith Pickering. Go give him high fives!)
-------------------------------------------

Along with the new DVDs, we've also got another little something going on sale Thursday.




We were always kind of on the fence about printing MH tshirts. However, there's been a huge number of requests for them, and we didn't want to keep refusing them forever if it's something people actually want. Now that we've had some time to warm up to it, we're ready to have them available.

We wanted to keep them as minimalist as possible in their design, so the print is only on the front of the shirt. They feel similar to American Apparel, so they're very comfy. They'll be priced at $12.95 + S&H. And the sizes available are small through extra large.

There will also be the choice of a package deal if you want, with both the season 1 and 2 DVDs as well as one of the shirt designs for $32.95 + S&H.

And that basically wraps it up. Thank you so much for any purchases you decide to make, as it helps us fund season 3 and all the other stuff we're working on! And if you don't want to buy anything, that's cool too, just watching the things we do is plenty of support to keep us going!

  4. Yes! I personally think the shirts are too minimalist(You couldn't get one with "marble hornets" on the front and the operator symbol on the back?). But that doesn't mean I wont be buying one.

  7. Hey Troy, will the release on Thursday be as limited as the release for season 1 was? I can't afford it until Friday and I don't want it all to be gone before I get a chance...

  8. I don't really know how fast they'll sell since they haven't been made available yet, but we'll print more as fast as possible as soon as the first run sells out!

  23. So, once again, you are going to use that yahoo selling crap which is saying "FUCK YOU" to everyone not in North America. Whatever.

    1. What? The DVD is region free and we ship internationally. Is there a problem?

    2. People on the internet get so mad about things.

  25. You could always ask politely if there are alternative methods of shipping, instead of immediately getting mad in space

    ReplyDelete
  26. While at this rate it would basically just be "get any selection of 2 things simultaneously for a discount," how about a "Just Season 2 DVD+a shirt?"

    ReplyDelete
  27. Season 2 and shirt bundle would be much appreciated since countless fans already own the first season on DVD.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm so excited! I can't wait to buy it and open it up!

  30. Sorry about the last comment, I misread the info o.o Anyway!
    I'd really like a shirt in a woman's cut. Come on guys! We need to work together to accommodate my boobs! And the boobs of other female MH fanatics!
    Let's make it happen.

  31. I just exploded, then exploded again... Can't wait guys :)

  32. Are the shirts 100% cotton? Not sure what size to get.

    ReplyDelete
  33. "...And an extra special surprise that I may or may not have already mentioned on this blog."

    More Happy Birthday Shadow? Totally calling it now just in case it is. Regardless, I eagerly await tomorrow's arrival so I can make my purchase. Though it had its flaws, S1's DVD was great, and it looks like S2 is picking up slack in some necessary areas, so here's hoping for a run as successful as the original's!

  34. Subtotal: $24.90 (season 2 + t-shirt)
    Shipping: $24.00 (international shipping)

    That's kind of extreme...

    ReplyDelete
  35. Just bought both seasons, here's hoping they get here before the end of the month. (International shipping is terrible.) Really looking forwards to the extra special surprise Alex Kralie's Marble Hornets trailer.

    ReplyDelete
  36. International shipping is gratuitously expensive for the shipper. They can't really make the call on the shipping price. :/

    I work for a shipping place. It changes you, man. It changes you.

  37. You should try some posters next.

  38. I'm watching Entry 28 on the DVD and there is missing audio. And I compared it directly to the YouTube video. I played it on my PS3 and my laptop, so I'm sure there is missing audio.

    ReplyDelete
  39. DVD's arrived. Awesome! Two season 1 DVD's, instead of both seasons. Not so awesome...

    1. Yeah I ordered the bundle and got both DVDs but no shirt, and not even a receipt. I have a feeling the distributor has been rushing a little bit. Hope they can fix it...

      Delete
    2. Same here. Wondering what happened to my shirt now.

      Delete
  40. I also would like to see the shirts come in XXL size. I'm a big guy and want to show my love and support of this series!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Alright, big problem. I think my order may have been mixed up. I ordered the 1 & 2 w/ Symbol shirt, but I have only received the shirt. Either that, or the DVDs are being delivered separately. Would I be able to send an email with a picture of the package and its contents?

    ReplyDelete
  42. oh man if only i was in usa, i'd buy a copy of everything immediately. but of course i live on the other side of the planet :P
    if it's okay to write this to this same comment, i want to say that i love the show and have been a huge fan from the beginning. good job and thank you, i'm sure you all will be something big someday! :)
    -regards from your fan in finland

  43. Order arrived. Season 1 + 2 DVD's are great, but the shirt I ordered with it didn't come. On top of that, I didn't even get a receipt to prove I didn't get the shirt.

    Is there an e-mail or anything for me to try and correct this? Come on guys, we could watch this for free but we pay to support you. Surely this must be rectified. I know it's not your fault, but I'm not seeing a wave of satisfied customers.

    1. Thank goodness I'm not the only one. I also ordered season 1 and 2 and a shirt. I've recived the DVDs, but no shirt. :| I didn't get a receipt either. Are the shirts going to arrive seperately or...? I love Marble Hornets to bits, but this is a little discouraging. I mean, really, guys. You may want to fix this soon.
