Please stop splitting Shorts into 2 parts
« on: November 10, 2009, 04:03:46 PM »
Is it just me, or does anyone else HATE the fact that they are taking longer shorts (approx 20 minutes) and cutting them up into 2 parts?  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE all the shorts and have purchased them all, but I'm really beginning to think twice about buying any short that is cut into 2 parts.  Why? 

First, I have to wait a week for part 2 (or, in the case of American Thrift - it's been 3 weeks and still no part 2!). 

Second, I hate at the end of Part 1 where they have a voiceover telling me that Part 2 is coming. 

Third, on Part 2 they have a black screen at the beginning while they jokingly tell me what happened in part 1.

Forth, that voiceover in Part 2 interferes with dialog from the short that was not riffed on part 1

I prefer the Shorts to be wholet, and therefore I have to re-author them.  When the voiceover interferes with the original dialog, I have to cut that section of the short out.

If you guys are going to continue cutting the shorts up into 2 parts, can you just cut to the Rifftrax logo and do the voiceover there at the end of part 1, and have the opening voiceover of part 2 over the Rifftrax logo at the beginning, then cut to the rest of the short (no lape dissolves, please)?

Either that or just give us the entire 20 minute short and charge us $1.98 for it.

Just my 2 cents.  Thanks for listening.

I agree.  I would much rather pay $2 for a single longer short than have them split up into parts.

No, but it probably increases the odds.

No, they'll just start splitting them into 3 parts.
