if this is because of concerns about copyright infringement it's just paranoid and stupid. yea pool players are cheap but they're also lazy, they won't travel to whereever to watch a 4hr solo run. most people would probably buy it if it was on vimeo

he should sell it to accustats, because it's clear he can't handle this himself

"He knew what those jubilant crowds did not know, but could have learned from books; that the plague bacillus never dies or disappears for good...and that perhaps the day would come when, for the bane and the enlightening of men, it would rouse up its rats again and send them forth to die in a happy city."

This is all good, eventually though pool fans around the globe would need to see it too, perhaps a year after private showings?

Sorry, US residents only. The plan apparantly is to have as few people see it as possible. The private showings will be held in secret locations (primarily rented storage units) and attendees will be searched for cameras before being issued a metal folding chair.

This is an unexpected development, but John needs to handle this as he sees fit.

Perhaps he feels that those who attend the private viewing will publicly and boisterously rave about what they saw to the point that others become even more excited to watch it than they had been.

Whatever his plan, I wish him good luck with it. He deserves to be able to monetize his amazing effort to the greatest extent possible.

I'm not sure what to make of the "private" viewing. Maybe I'm missing something.

Either way, I hope the video is made either ppv, one time purchase or as an advertising video by predator, techno dud, taom etc...etc...

At some point, I believe it will be released as a one-time purchase.

I knew a fellow that thought he was a good boxer because he was in a position to befriend a lot of "professional boxers". It cost him azzwhippens till he realized he wasn't what he thought/wished he was.

Do you know anyone like the "wannabe" boxer in the pool world?

Yes I am afraid that if this is a true statement from Mr Schmidt, then he has gone full paranoid. If he doesn’t release the video for free or at least available to own at a reasonable price then I think he will alienate every person that has watched his runs and paid attention to him during his quest for the record.

No one will move heaven and earth to see the video. They will just move on and curse johns name in an angry mutter whenever something reminds them of him. Some may even go full dh

I've only seen my 626 once on film. I'll say this , that run that day was a blur but after watching it omg. So many times I'm in huge trouble and would bet high run ends if I didn't know better. It looks like late Nov people will see it for first time. I'm booking private showings and I'll be there. That way it's not pirated or copied. It's only way that lets people see it without losing ownership of it. I already have a private party I'm showing it at.should be fun.

END

Well, that makes absolutely no sense.

No one is going to pay him to come out to their pool room and have people sit through a video of a 600 ball run. So from a revenue generating point of view it's a non-starter.

So then you have ask: is he really that concerned (read paranoid) about pirating? Personally, I just don't see that a a valid concern. In the first place the run itself is of interest only to a very tiny sliver of the pool playing populace. IOWs, it wouldn't be worth the time and effort to copy and distribute it in the first place because the market is so small.

So then you have to ask yourself: is there another reason for controlling viewing of the run so tightly?

No, I don't think you 'have to ask' anything further than if he really thinks the reward is money.

I’ll just watch one of my old John Schmidt’s DVD with his commentary a few times until I get to 626

Hopefully John can turn the viewing into giving seminars the following day to make some $$$.

I would love to see it/own it but won't travel more than say 50 miles and the price would need to be low enough to compensate. To own the DVD I'd pay up to $50. More than that is to much for me...
