Can someone please tell me why art DVDs are so freaking expensive?
I have watched several of the 'free' sneak peaks of some of the videos on Youtube and I would love to see the whole thing, but I just cant justify spending, in most cases, it costs at least $100 to $200 dollars for a 2 hour or so demo of 1 or 2 paintings. I find the ones produced by Liliedahl to be well done and I am using their website as an example for pricing.
Who is paying these prices? Why are they so expensive? It can't be very costly to produce them. All they need is the artist and a couple of cameras. I have seen some rather sketchy online sites that are kind of like the old Netflix where they send you a physical copy of a DVD and you get to pick or or 2 titles at a time for something like $20 a month. That seems much more reasonable, but I dont know if I trust the websites and why cant I just stream them?
Would love to watch exactly how the masters do and and buy some of the videos by Schmid, Lafell, Robert Johnson, Camille Przewodek, etc. but those prices are just outrageous.
