“We are ecstatic that our friends at DataDirect Networks have jumped aboard to help us launch the remaining six episodes of our first season of SOLO,” said Jonathan Nail, creator and star of the show. “DDN is a natural fit as our sponsor. They are the leading data infrastructure provider for the world’s most scalable, content-intensive enterprises including Microsoft Xbox Live, Shutterfly and even NASA! What better way to show their dedication and support than providing the means to helping us make some noise about our independent production.”
The “SOLO Mars Madness ‘Comment & Win’ Sweepstakes”
Entry to win the iPad 2 (32GB) “Mars or Bust” Contest is a wee bit more involved. Beginning on May 17th, 2011, subscribers must watch episode 9 and then create a “Video Response” in the comments section of episode 9 in order to enter the contest for the iPad 2. The subject matter of the video is very specific, so entrants must find out at the end of episode 9 on YouTube. All eligible entries will be judged by a select team of judges – so make those videos look good! One (1) potential winner will win an iPad 2 on or about June 21st, 2011. Official rules and instructions may be found at http://watchsolo.com/
“This is really in honor of our SOLONAUTS – our fans who have made financial contributions to the show,” remarked Mr. Nail. “These die-hard fans of independently produced content donated well over $11,000.00 to help us finish out our first season. We LOVE our Solonauts!”
The producers of SOLO will re-release episodes 1-3 on YouTube beginning April 5th with annotations and updated graphics by Lumen Actus (www.lumenactus.com)
