• As many long-time, die hard SCC fans will recall, the cessation of active campaign organization here at savethescc.com was a decision driven in part by the standstill in the Terminator franchise following Pacificor's procurement of film rights.

    In December 2012, Annapurna Pictures finalized a deal with Pacificor for the rights to additional film installments in the Terminator franchise, which represents the first new activity in the Terminator 'verse since the cancellation of The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

    So if you're reading this, remember that you are the Resistance and that it doesn't hurt to take a minute or two to remind the WB of that.

    No fate.

  • Season Two DVD/Blu-Ray Support

    The performance of the Season Two DVDs and Blu-Rays – particularly in relation to the performance of the Terminator: Salvation DVDs – is very important, both to The WB and our efforts to demonstrate the size and strength of the show’s fans. So besides pre-ordering your copies, here’s another little something you can do.

    Schmacky (you know her for her amazing SCC vids and running the SaveTheSCC cafepress store) has put together a series of flyers and postcards promoting the release of the Season 2 DVDs/Blu-Rays. Right now there are three regional versions – one for U.S./Canada (September 22), one for the U.K. (November 20) and one that does not reference a release date for those of you who live in countries for which there is no scheduled release date at this time.

    So here’s the plan.

    Flyers

    Print off a bunch of these gorgeous flyers (or have larger quantities printed either using a local printing service or an online printer) and ask your local entertainment retailers if you can leave a stack by the register or even around the store. Hand them out, tape them to public bulletin boards, etc.

    Postcards

    The goal is to encourage as many non-fans as possible to take a chance on the show by reaching for the Season Two DVDs/Blu-Rays and to remind existing fans or casual viewers to go out and buy their DVD/Blu-Ray copies. Which means that you can’t just send these to the networks as usual. Here’s what we’re suggesting.

    Go to a site like VistaPrint (we suggest VistaPrint for the U.S. fans because they do small quantities as well as the standard large quantities) or google a postcard marketing online service that operates in your area (since VistaPrint does not do mailing outside of the U.S.) and upload the postcard you want to use as well as the back image we’ve made for you. Instead of sending it to a network’s address, however, choose the option of using a mailing list (to consumers, if you’re given the option). This means that instead of using an address you provide, the online service will mail your postcards to the public for a small fee (VistaPrint charges $0.07 per card) This way, the postcards are reaching the general public. Got it? No? Email me at aelysian@savethescc.com if you’re confused or have questions.

    So where are these gorgeous postcards? Right here.

    There are six versions in total, each with a link below to the flyer size and the postcard size. There is also a pre-made postcard back for each region, which is formatted for horizontal postcards.
