The Thunderbean 'GAC in Exile' special fundraising DVD.....
« on: November 08, 2011, 07:37:55 pm »
Hi IADers and GACers!

Announcing the 'GAC in Exile' Thunderbean Fundraiser disc!

This special DVD disc contains 8 more great cartoons from the Golden age of animation, including animation from the Fleischer studio, MGM, Warners, Lantz, Columbia and others- all professionally transferred from rare original film prints.
It will also include all 8 cartoons as high def MPEG files.

It is available to members of the forum only and former GAC members and will never be available in any kind of 'Official' release. This special
disc will help with finishing the 'Noveltoons' set. If you have the first set you have some idea of what this one will look like as well.

This special fundraiser is $12 plus $2 shipping. Shipping is $3 outside of the US. Paypal is steves@thunderbeananimation.com

Thanks to everyone for supporting these classic animation releases!


Some quick Thunderbean back story for those who don't know about the company:

We've been producing animated collections of classic cartoons on DVD since 2004. The newest releases include Makin' 'Em Move (Behind the scenes stuff from Vintage Animation Studios) and Private Snafu Golden Classics. You can purchase most of the ones that are still available on Amazon:   

www.amazon.com/shops/thunderbean

Thunderbean has been a small animation studio as well since 1998.  Before that, I started  a little company in 1988 called Snappy Video that released rare animation on VHS tape. Thunderbean always tries to produce sets with the best possible quality.

We're currently working on set of 'Noveltoons' cartoons, mostly transferred from original 35mm Technicolor material. It's looking fantastic but has been an expensive venture. To help the funding of the project (since it won't be a 'top' seller most likely) Thunderbean produced a special sneak preview with some of the cartoons as well as a fundraiser disc featuring other rare animation. These cartoons are things I really like that I think most of the die hard Golden Age Folks would like too! These 'special' titles are never official releases and were only available to members of the forum.

I like the idea of doing transfers by the 15th to get the disc to everyone this month....the last one took a while because of schedules, but things are pretty open right now in terms of transfer. So- let's say the 15th!

You might consider a longer time period; there is likely to be some lag as the GAC reorganization shakes down.

I'll try to send you my money before the end of today. The disc should be sent to the address I e-mailed to you last week (and which I'll include again.)

Just wanted to say for the benefit of anyone here who is not familiar with Steve's DVDs that he puts many of the larger companies to shame. His sets are always well worth the money and he has done a huge service to fans of classic cartoons by preserving parts of our cartoon heritage that might have otherwise been lost.

Just finished up his GAC RARE CARTOON FUNDRAISER disc and it was mighty fine. Definitely looking forward to this disc, as well as the NOVELTOON disc which this disc is helping to finance!
