Delays are becoming a norm with MoC. Harsh? OK, but it's the truth. Clearly an area for improvement. At least the lower price can be considered in some measure as 'compensation.' Oh, how we complain...
(And before people start coming at me, yes, I can appreciate the sheer quality of MoC material. But that's not the point here.)
The point is that you feel compelled to use the Internet to air any random twinge of opinion that crosses your mind, with no regard for any human-to-human decorum that might be accorded the people who put The Masters of Cinema Series together and regularly read these boards. A fact of which you are no doubt aware, otherwise you wouldn't be so inclined to passive-aggressively cry "faster! hush!" just because a ship-date that was announced -- as a way to try and give people who care a lot about the series a general estimate of when they might expect a release they're really looking forward to (given that those folks' patronage of the MoC Series is sincerely appreciated by all who make these releases happen) -- has slipped back.
It's probably completely unnecessary to spell out the details that go into putting the MoC discs out, but be aware that on any given day, the work-load might consist of dealing with licensors via phone, fax, and email; navigating the intricacies of sales distribution; going through a slew of successive checkdiscs, noting corrections, and working with the authoring-house to get everything as perfect as possible; designing packaging/disc-art/180-page books and booklets; going back-and-forth via phone and email with the printers who are responsible for manufacturing the sleeves, boxes, and books; commissioning pieces for the books from various contributors; working with those contributors on the editing and trajectory of their pieces; writing original copy for packages, sell-sheets, and Web; editing audio and video for supplementary features on the discs; coordinating with the individuals who help shoot and record those features; editing trailers for upload to the MoC Series website and YouTube; designing/creating the menus that appear on-screen on the DVD; and discussing strategies for approaching forthcoming releases further down the pike.
Consider that 95% of this work is done by one man, which you should already know from frequenting this forum as often as you do. Then find something else to fixate upon rather than the ship-date for your next consumable. Or do the polite, even human, thing and keep the shoot-from-the-hip grousing to yourself, the same as you might in a public, face-to-face setting.
