Approximately 95 video productions were completed in2015. These show up to a couple of times a day on SBTV 3 for a month. On Superwire they show for several months in some cases.

Our web site has had the following visitors: Today  3;  yesterday  3;  last month 278; all time history 9,677.  Since February 2013, that’s about 300 a month. Most watched video is Lucky John Nail into Head. The most views were in the United States, 5773; then Germany 440, Russia 331, Moldova 247, Turkey 185, France 181, Ukraine 114, Taiwan 63, Canada 59, ad Poland 50.

Every year the question of being paid to do videos or making money from your videos comes up. Our club’s interest is in making the movie. It is not to make money. The equipment provided by SBTV3 and the equipment from the Recreation department cannot be used as part of commercial endeavor.

Leisure World by-laws state that no one can use Leisure World facilities in a commercial endeavor. If someone did earn money on such an endeavor, Superwire would have to be paid before it would even consider showing it. SBTV3 would not even consider it.

There are three reasons someone would hire you to video: 1 – your talent; 2 – your membership in this club; 3 – you could get them on television. As such you cannot entice people to pay you because you are a member of this club or entice them to pay you because you can get them on television.

Robin Forte-Lincke spoke further on this subject.

Respectfully submitted,
