Sounds like they're pushing their luck. The rules for fan films are only two 15 minute episodes in one contiguous story. ("The fan production must be less than 15 minutes for a single self-contained story, or no more than 2 segments, episodes or parts, not to exceed 30 minutes total, with no additional seasons, episodes, parts, sequels or remakes. ")
I wonder if the original backers get included in the release or if we're out in the cold? I 'm subbed to the mailing list, official Facebook page, and the fan page but, to be honest, I got tired of all the infighting and stopped following it.
