Very nice list of planned stuff, and there are quite lot of very interesting things on it,
but I would think, you seem to rush a bit and should consider doing just one task at time. Instead of announcing a huge load of things, I would think it would be wiser to focus. Like picking one of the things you would love to do, and work linear from start to finish.
Honestly, I am I a kind of a doubt, with what you try to accomplish, that you will reach the goal, of just finishing one project. Surely I would love to be surprised positively, but it really would be a surprise.

I'll also wish you good luck and reiterate what MrBrown said: pick only one to focus on first and go from there.

Is this list in addition to your previous one?

It might be, yes. However, here I'm only listing projects I initially plan on releasing next year (2018). I might very likely trim the fat as I proceed, as mentioned earlier.
Thanks given by:
#8
After sufficient consideration, I've decided that while I will release most titles on Ultra HD in the future, right now it isn't feasible, so at least for the time being, all titles will be released only on DVD and Blu-ray, with a possible 1080i D-Theater feed as well.
