Their introduction:www.youtube.com/watch?v=-UIjK0KM1ME (Nov 5, 2006) a fairly silly 1st introductory vlog where these 2 guys claim they will producing vids for youtube which they claim will be an interactive series.
First Episode: The Right Choice www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPKtTKYDanQ (Nov 13, 2006) I won't give away the plot now, but at the end, you have to vote on one of two plot possibilities. Definitely an indie low budget kind of thing, but has a good sense of humor.
I really didn't get that first episode... digging in the woods, getting tackled by some random hunter, no explanation for the tackling or why he didn't continue to try and dig it up afterwards, the random kid (little brother?) talking about shrooms.. also the choices were only on screen long enough for me to read A, and their "you can only vote if subscribed" rule would be very impractical if they got big. Not that they will, but..

You came to our forum so I thought I'd return the favor and join you guys here. I have browsed here before because I do watch lonelygirl15 and have been since Daniel and Bree's dad had that fight. Thanks for posting a thread here about us, me and Don do both appreciate it. We also understand the viewpoint of hyemew and all that agree with him. We know that this video lacked in constructive dialogue and explanation, but we chose to sacrifice that for the first episode so we can "hit the ground running" so to speak. You can bet that everything that was unclear the first time will be made clear next episode and that future episodes will be far less confusing. We also heard the complaint of the choices not being on screen long enough...we'll lengthen it next time.
Thanks a bunch for this thread! We really do appreciate all postive and negative feedback we get, it will help make this project a true success.

Add a link to directly download the vid. Just a little HTML hanky panky I suppose.
I would also try to think of a way to get an iTunes video podcast subscription going so that the end user could auto dl the vids. I don't know what all this entails, but I think that this delivery method would make it much easier to keep up with and allow new users to catch up easily down the road... I'm guessing Apple would not be the easiest company to deal with, but it might be worth some research on your part.
