This article was written live and may contain substanitive errors. We hope to correct these over time. Any opinions expressed are the opinions of Greg Goodfried and or Eqal. but please remember this is only a best effort to provide an outline of what was said.
Greg apologized to the misfits for coming down on them too hard.
Their funding goes towards the company not the projects. They do not have resistance season 2 funding at the moment. They will be continuing, but the advertising market sucks in 2009. They want to harness the community's talent so TSIY was born.
They will help with logistics and donate equipment if they live in LA. The winner WILL BE WINNING SOME MONEY IN THE END....details later.
They debated selecting the misfits. The Poll on LG15Today was the breaking point on selecting The Misfits.
Banner ads may be visible on the site in time.
They were offered $2,500. Reaction was disappointing from Jenni's side. She wanted to submit a budget, hire producers and actors, etc. Amanda broke into tears because Jenni went out, she wanted more money. This is "not there fault(s)." They don't want to look like the bad guy. Greg was "pissed.' He wished they never submitted. The Last is "doing cartwheels" over the $2,500. He hopes to God we give The Last the support. They are going against state laws by not giving money. They wanted to surprise with the money.
He wanted the pilot winner to play it like they did in the beginning. Assumed he would do it with just friends and family. Thought that MaxterBexter were "sooooo cool" for keeping connected with the community.
All answers are in TOS... which they are not allowed to break. EQAL is a studio/comany that owns LG15 property. Owns the mythology. Owners of copyrights can make derivative works. The TOS reads that "The World" may make derivative works of the LG15 universe. Non commercial, new story, must be uploaded to LG15.com (link, etc.) Subject to the LG15 license given. "It's kind of like creative commons". LG15 isn't making any money off of the TSIY show. The winner still makes $2,500 anyway.
The "rude post" was so that the community can get a full answer. "Creative differences" would give an unclear answer.
The question for revenue sharing: "Absolutley"
Focusing mainly on TSIY 1 now. All for open collaberation with shows.
Copyrighted music was allowed in Pilot, Seth was giving a bunch of cleared music to the winner for the show. Again, lack of funding. When Obama fixes the Economy, the advertisers will be awesome and then they will finish LG15:TR.
TSIY is wanted to stay in the universe, keep same mythology.
Virgil (Joey) would work for free if he won TSIY.
Tech Developement is a hard thing. They have a team working on the website and forum functionality for new shows. "With the technology, you guys, please bear with us." Eqal is both a content / tech company. "The technology drives the content". We will have a very exciting year at EQAL.
They are trying there best towards a n1ckola translation.
100% of the other pilots were clear that they would not be receiving financial compensation. Assume when entering TSIY you will get no money.
"Razor thin decision is choosing The Last and The Misfits.
He like's their accents.
They are not behind CiW.
They are working on solutions. They cannot use phpBB due to site integration. One or two dedicated forum workers. He's not the tech-guy, he will learn about turning the phpBB back on.
He apologizes for being "rude," he was pissed and his wife was upset, but doesn't apologize for the abrasive clairification. EQAL will not stop with TSIY. Watching and learning about the pilots was "Magical"
Amanda's pregnancy is a super-secret.
He does not know about the runners up. He's leaving to go ask... Lot of support for Randy!"
"So guys, how'd I do? We all friends again?:"
No premier date for the last yet.
Working on translating n1ckola and an english site for lg15.com/n1ckola
Misfits is not canon.
He knows nothing about the italian market.
Working mostly on first person. Maybe more third person depending on n1ckola. Not their decision for third person for n1ckola.
"Aussie Aussie Aussie" "We are pumped to see what you guys do".
"Alright. That's it"
Thanks to Randy for kindly helping with this article.
