It’s hard to believe a year has passed since altPOV.tv launched. For Richie, Patrick and me, the week leading up to the launch — and especially the 48 hours before — will be something we won’t forget soon due to technical challenges and Patrick’s missing time experience. But we survived, and finally had a chance to share the award-winning documentary film extraordinary: the stan romanek story with a global audience.
In the year since the launch, we have added 1,700 members and have received more than 102,000 page views on our site. Jack Roth has conducted 24 podcasts that have been viewed more than 8,000 times. Not bad. But we want the site to have an even greater reach, and we will continue to develop additional content. More on that later. But first:
To celebrate our one-year anniversary, you can watch the VOD of extraordinary for $2.99 — 50% off the regular $5.99 price. The discount is available through Tuesday, May 12 at 3 p.m. EDT. The VOD will be available for 48 hours from the time you purchase.
Back to the additional content. Our goal from the outset was to provide a variety of alternative point of view content above and beyond the extraordinary: the stan romanek story documentary. The podcasts, blog content and social media content have been relatively easy to keep up with — assuming our full-time jobs allow. The challenge has been to edit and present some of the content that we promised at the outset, including additional footage from the interviews conducted for the documentary. Time and money are always a factor for independent projects, and we are considering a few crowd-sourcing options that may help us create a pathway to more content. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.
Finally, we’re wondering what you would like to see on the site in addition to the content we’re already providing. Politics? Religion? Conspiracy theories? Let us know in the comments area what you’d like to see more of.
For those of you who have stuck around for the past year, we thank you for your continued support via comments, emails and social media engagement. It is much appreciated.
Here’s to the next 365 days!
