And neither are you or you'd be wandering around the Gaslamp district in search of food, drink and general merriment, not reading my LJ. I can't really complain, though. I got to experience it last time and might go again next year. Of course, if I'd known last year that we'd be doing all this savethescc stuff this year, I think I would've planned my trips a bit differently!

The point of this post wasn't to whine about missing out on Sarah Connor Chronicles fandom fun at Comic Con, though. I wanted to update you guys on everything since I've been kind of slacking with savethescc posts lately. We raised all that money and I don't think I ever posted about how it all worked out. Maybe I did, but I'm too lazy to dig through my posts right now to check.

All totalled, TSCC fans raised $5012. With that money, we got the 3-day mobile billboard run, 850 16"x20" tote bags with double-sided printing, 1000 1.75" buttons and 3000 stickers (1000 of each of the three designs). It's amazing how expensive everything really was once shipping and hotel receiving fees got factored in (the Hyatt really soaks you to accept packages). It got a little tense there for a while, wondering if we'd actually be able to afford everything, but we worked it out.

If you're actually heading off to Comic Con one day this week (or maybe you're there and really really bored and found yourself reading this), the billboard should be all over the place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday from about 12 noon to 8pm. Also, Aelysian and some fellow fans are there and they'll be handing out the totes, buttons and stickers to con goers. The best way to keep up with what's happening, is to follow Aelysian on twitter. And if you're planning to be there and can help out, be sure to DM her.

Oh, here's something fun: She discovered a Save Sarah sticker on what looks like the back of a Comic Con location marker sign. If so, it could be one I placed last year (I put them on the backs of several of those signs). Or maybe there are just more fans stickering this year. Either way, it's pretty cool :)

It's been a year since TSCC was dropped. I know, I can't believe it either. Seems like only yesterday I was crying my eyes out and cursing Fox. Oh, heh. It was. That's how I start every day since Sarah Connor disappeared from TV.

I've spent nearly a year now with savethescc, brainstorming, planning, organizing and campaigning for more. The chances were always slim. We all knew that going in. But It's too good of a story and the characters too well developed to simply fade away from the Terminator verse. I mean seriously, should something that started as strong as The Terminator be stuck playing out along the path of T3 and T4? HELL NO. Also, there's no Cameron or Derek on that path... and no Sarah fucking Connor!

So we're making one more move. One more plea to Warner Brothers. One more show of fan support for The Sarah Connor Chronicles. And we're doing it where industry and fandom converge: Comic Con San Diego. We're going to do a 3-day run of the billboard there, as well as hand out stickers and other TSCC promo goodies to con goers. You can read all about it at savethescc.

This means we need money, of course. I know you're all tired of reaching into your pockets, but this is the last time I'll ask for campaign donations. After this, we'll let the powers that be do their thing and we'll turn our attention to planning a TSCC con.

Just to run the billboard at Comic Con, we need $2475. Everything over and above that will go toward getting merchandise printed up for handing out. Please help with whatever amount you can. As an incentive, everyone who donates $25 or more will get a set of Cameron's 'no' 'FA' 'te' buttons (we'll be getting those made after the donation drive is done, so it'll be a few weeks before they're sent out).



Please spread the word far and wide. We need everyone's help for this final push! There is no fate but what we make.

Hey, have you done a video for the TSCC fan TV commercial yet? The deadline was bumped to Sunday 1/17, so there's still time. Good thing, since I haven't done mine yet either ;)

Anyway, quit being lazy. Get to it. We want more submissions!
roxybisquaint: (sarah reload)
After a bit of a hiatus, we're kicking back into action at savethescc. The Terminator rights get auctioned off in February and once there's a new owner, we've got a shot at TSCC again. In the meantime, we need to rally the fans — energize the resistance. So we're making a TV commercial to raise awareness of the fight. It'll be done through Google TV ads, which means we'll be bidding for the air time. This isn't something you'll see on prime time network TV, but we will have the ability to target our audience. It'll be cool. And fun. And maybe you'll be in it... Step one is for all of you to make a video.

TV.com poll

roxybisquaint: (sarah something to lose)
The Sarah Connor Chronicles needs your vote! TV.com's The Best of 2009 poll includes TSCC in the Best Show Axed Before it's Time category against Pushing Daisies and Life on Mars. Yeah, I loved Pushing Daisies too, but I think you know where my loyalties lie... with SARAH CONNOR.

So go get in there and support our show. Cast a vote some votes (the Vote button changes to Vote Again after you've voted, so multiple voting is, of course, encouraged).

Oh and in case anyone is wondering, there is no news on the WB front yet. Terminator rights being auctioned is no doubt slowing things down, but our fight continues. No fate.

In an interview with IGN, Brian Austin Green mentions the TSCC mobile billboard and DVD movie possibility.

"The fact that people are still buying the DVDs and there's the demand for it… I know there's a billboard that's driving around Burbank saying, "Save the show. Bring it back." That's amazing. Those little things, they're all little things, but they become something bigger. And I think if enough people just kind of keep putting that energy out there, something will happen. I think we have a really good chance."

We're going to get more Sarah Connor Chronicles. Can you feel it? I can feel it. We're on the radar and we've got momentum. The Freaking Big Push continues through October, so stick with it!
roxybisquaint: (sarah hope)
You probably already saw the article on Scifi Wire about the mobile billboard. You might have also seen mentions on various other sci-fi blogs, like Scifi Scoop, The Sci-Fi Block, Slice of SciFi and You Bent My Wookie. But have you seen today's io9 story? TSCC executive producer James Middleton is quoted. Go read it!
roxybisquaint: (sarah what i do)
We've done plenty of guerilla marketing in this campaign to save the show... bookmarks in books in the sci-fi section of the library, flyers under windshield wipers, stickers everywhere. But I like that kind of thing and I want to do more. So I'm thinking about doing a highway overpass sign for The Sarah Connor Chronicles, like this. But what should it say and how should I do it? A painted sheet? Some cardboard? Streamers woven into the fencing? Hmm...

I think I'll plot it out this weekend. I'm open to suggestions.
roxybisquaint: (save tscc)
More and better pictures and video later tonight, but here's a shot of the mobile billboard in front of Warner Brothers today:




ETA: More billboard pics!
roxybisquaint: (sarah third season)
It's not a mock-up anymore. The vinyl has been printed and it's already on the truck! In case you'd somehow forgotten, the billboard rolls on Monday (Mon 9/21-Wed 9/23). We've got two routes set up, one of which will run on Monday and Wednesday and the other on Tuesday. The Tuesday route had to be altered today because of city ordinances that prevent it from driving through certain areas, but I think we've got it all squared away now. It's possible that one could change again, though. If it does, I'll update that map.

So here's what we all paid for. Hope you like it.





We'll have video and pictures of it along the routes next week.
roxybisquaint: (sarah are you there god?)
Freaking Big Push reminder:

The billboard rolls out on Monday. The DVD is released on Tuesday. Movie theater ads start showing a week from tomorrow. This is it; we're in the thick of it now and I hope you guys have been keeping up with the daily missions. Some take more effort, but all are important. You can't sit back and think oh, I'm sure other people are doing it, I don't need to. Everyone needs to be involved. Everyone needs to participate. If you skipped a mission on its scheduled date, do it late. If you don't have time during the week, do them on the weekend. We're making a statement — making a push for more Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Today's mission is an easy one: Go tell WB that you love The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Tell them you want more of it. Tell them you miss the drama. Tell them these characters climbed into your heart and won't leave. Tell them you miss Sarah Connor's good and moral soul. Tell them you miss Derek's crazy eyes. Tell them you miss John Connor's strength and compassion. Hell, tell 'em you miss Cameron's undies, I don't care... just tell them!
roxybisquaint: (sarah news)
I'm not going to pretend TSCC fans (and Summer Glau fans, in particular) didn't spam the hell out of the Tubeys to make this happen, but bragging rights are fun anyway. You can run through all the categories at TWoP, but The Sarah Connor Chronicles earned top votes in the following 16 categories:

 


 


• Best Drama
• Best Returning Show
• Most Painful Series Cancellation
• Most Underrated Show
• Most Improved Show
• Broadcast Network Show Most In Need of a Move to Cable
• Best Season Finale
• Best On-Screen Death Scene
• Best Single Episode (Drama)
• Best "WTF" moment
• Best Smackdown (Non-Reality Show)
• Favorite Actress
• Most Unwelcome New Character
• Most Wrongly Underused Character
• Best Badass
• Best Almost-Romantic-But-Not-Quite Relationship

Most Unwelcome New Character and Most Wrongly Underused Character aren't exactly brag-worthy, but it wouldn't be fandom if there wasn't a little bitterness in the mix, would it?

Today's mission for The Freaking Big Push is Postcard Day. Eh, too much effort. WRONG! I'm going to walk you through it so you can see how easy this really is. All you need is a credit card (that you're going to put less than $3 on) and your fingers. Ready?


1. Pick a postcard to send. Just scroll down and find the one you want to mail to Warner Brothers and click on it to get the full size image. Save the image to your desktop. Sarah fan that I am, I chose this one.

2. Go to click2mail.com and sent up an account. Click2mail is really easy to use once you've been through the process, but it's a little confusing if you've never used it before. So I'll tell you exactly what to do:

3. Click the red "Get Started button in the center of the graphic near the top of the page.

4. Scroll down and click "Create an account" on the right hand.

5. Fill out the form and click "Register".

6. I hope I get this next part right because I already have an account and I'm already logged in. But I think it'll take you to the Create a new mailing page next. If not, then once you're registered, just use the link here to get to it.

7. Select "Postcards" as the type of mailing you want to do.

8. Click the "or, upload a new document" button that's right above those "small", "large", "reply" tabs.

9. In the "Select a product" pulldown menu, pick the first or second item: "Postcard - 4.25x6 single side" or "Postcard - 4.25x6 space saver". Single side means you don't get to add a note to the back and spacesaver means you do. You pay a bit more for spacesaver and chances are it's not going to get read anyway. So my suggestion is to pick a postcard design that carries a message. That's why I used the Wanted Poster design. No personalized message is even needed. Okay, next thing is to upload the artwork. Click that upload button and navigate to the postcard jpeg you saved to you desktop. Hit the "upload and mail" button.

10. In a new tab, pull up the WB address list. You'll want to send a postcard to all three of those people: Bruce Rosenblum, Peter Roth and Diane Nelson. Back on the click2mail page, click the link down on the left hand side that says "manage address book". That's where you'll enter the name, title and address for each of the three WB people. When that's done, hit the button in the bottom right corner that says "Next Step: Proof".

11. Now you can see what both sides of your postcard will look like. Use the little nav arrow that's in the upper right hand corner of the viewing area to make sure they all look fine. Check the box below it that says you've reviewed them all and click the "Next Step: Payment" button.

12. Pay attention! In the left hand column, it'll have you defaulted to B&W. Change that to full color and the paper to Gloss w/UV Coating. On the right hand side fill in your credit card info and hit the "Confirm Order" button. Ta-da! For a whopping $2.69 you've completed the mission.

Don't forget to check the calendar every day and do the mission! Today is Craig's List day. It's fun and easy; you just post some ads to promote The Sarah Connor Chronicles on DVD & Blu-ray. If you don't know what to write, use one of our sample ads.

Get busy.

THE FREAKING BIG PUSH

You've seen me asking for donations for a mobile billboard and movie theater preshow ads. You've heard me yammer on about saving The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Well this is what it's all been about. We've been working extra hard for the past several weeks over at savethescc to pull this thing together.

What exactly is The Freaking Big Push? It's a massive campaign that spans the entire month and then on through October. It's designed for fan voices to be heard, TSCC love to be spread and to promote the hell out of the upcoming season 2 DVD (because big s2 sales = money for WB, and money for WB = more TSCC for us). And there are prizes. Yes, prizes!

The September Calendar is full of daily missions and we need every TSCC fan to participate for this to have an impact. But don't worry, a lot of it is actually fun. And we're not sending you out into the fields unprepared! Everything you need to know is detailed out. So go check it out and get started on the first mission: September 3rd is Scream Awards voting day.

Well the fans did it again and the goal was met. Not enough extra came in to upsize the contract, but that's okay. We're planning a second ad run in October, so the excess will roll over and kick off that fund. Now, wanna see what will be hitting 38 screens for 2 weeks straight? Have a look:



You can download a larger/better copy here (I highly recommend it).

If you live near any of these theaters, go to the movies between 9/25 and 10/8 and report back how it looks on the BIG screen:



I'm so sad I'm not near any of them :(
roxybisquaint: (sarah john tough crowd)
Our biggest hope for a continuation of The Sarah Connor Chronicles lies in solid season 2 DVD/Blu-ray sales. That's where WB makes the money. Season 1 sold very well in the US and it's selling like crazy, internationally. So SaveTheSCC has a whole campaign planned for September/October to raise awareness and boost sales (the s2 DVD & Blu-ray hit the US market on 9/22).

You already know about (and helped fund) the mobile billboard. but we've got another big idea in the works that we need donations for: Movie theater pre-show advertising. We'll be doing this through Screenvision (warning: their site autoplays a loud video), running 10-second slides (that get cycled 3 times during preshow) on movie theater screens. Screenvision will also be throwing some PR weight behind the fans with a press release about efforts to save The Sarah Connor Chronicles.

This is an open-ended donation meter because the more money raised, the more screens we can advertise on. At the minimum, though, we need to raise $1204 by August 28th to do this. All the details and a PayPal donation widget thingy are available on savethescc.com. Or, you can donate right here, right now.



Another way to help is though the purchase of a 4gb Cameron-CPU styled USB Flash Drive. All the profit ($8.83 each) from the sale of the chips goes towards the movie theater ad fund. But don't feel like you can't do both — buy a chip and kick in some donation cash!
