Tell me about it. Seriously, if I lived in California, I'd be at every single one these things.

BTW, for anyone going to Comic-Con, please take some pictures and maybe write me a brief report so that I can post it in features. Thanks.

Important people don't do field work.


I'm tired of being in Korea. I miss all the good stuff and I miss all the movies and I miss all of the shows. I even miss all of the commercials. I mean, there's no chance in hell that I would ever be able to go to that con, but, still...Damn it!

Jeremy from www.serenitymovie.net is down there now, and I am just about positive he will audio record it. He did for the LA Comic-con and he posted it on his site and it sounded pretty good. i would check his site all next week. He has a pretty cool digital camera as well, so I'm sure he will have pictures as well.

The ENTIRE cast will be there?! Oh, that is just too cool for words...

What a great event at which to make this big splash! I MUST bring bunches of guerilla marketing posters to add to the fun!

I would kill to be there on Sunday. Not just to see the footage from Serenity, but to see Joss and the cast talk about Firefly. Damn me having no money and living too far away.

A request to anyone who is going: Please tape it or take pictures or something! Support your fellow Browncoats who cannot be there.

Yup, I'm a mean old man.

I'm seriously thinking about flying down just for the day on Sunday -- will you be there?

I aim to be there. Lots of things I need to take care of ahead of time though. I want to bring a bunch of guerilla marketing posters to help promote Firefly/Serenity. This event is such a shiny way to get some serious heat going for the best gorram dvd/movie in the 'verse.

Guess the only thing that would stop me is... Reavers!

Well, I just got my tickets (thanks to a ton of unused frequent flyer miles) and I'll be arriving in SD at 8:16AM. Let me know if you need any help with, since I really have nothing in particular to do after I register until around noon or 1PM, and I can carry posters as well as the next guy. Juggling goslings? Not so much. But posters I can do. :)

What I wouldn't give to be there. :(

Someone had better record the whole thing, just like the last comic-con.

Where's the love for the east coast? Ah... if I had money and the ability to take some time off, I'd be flying over to comic-con in an instant!

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


GORRAM IT!!!

California gets all the good stuff! There is never a ruttin' Con anywhere near Virginia where Joss or any of the BDHs come to.

I am sure some of the Cali Browncoats will attend. I hope they get plenty of pics and post a report about the tid bit of the BDM they see.

While pleased with this event, I am overcome with jealousy and am going to cry like a baby until we get some good preview stuff here in the South...y'all.

To those who are going. Please tell all and would someone please ask if that teaser poster is any indication of the final publicity concept. If so, convey our collective concern. That would be the royal we. Thanks

But its still the 24th in the US The panel is not till 1-2pm 25/7/04

I shall be logging in shortly after 8-9pm expecting something, even if its an "....." I just saw the footage and cannot speak post.

Please - someone tell me we have a Browncoat in place to phone someone with a computer and let us have the news asap after the panel finishes (because having the mobile on and talking into it during the panel would be plain rude - and might mean they miss something).

I read this one on the serenitymovie web site

posted by the admin


Quote:

I've read several other reports and none of them in my opinion accurately convey the energy and sheer "lovefest-y-ness" of the Serenity session. No rock-concert/sporting event/theater I've ever attended has come close! The 4000 plus seats were filled to overflowing and the volume level of the audience was several times that of any other session I attended, including StarWars and LOTR. As I looked around I actually saw tears, and I'm pretty sure I saw tears forming in several the cast members as well. But don't get me wrong, this was far from being a sad event. The entire cast and Joss (especially Nathan), had the audience and each other in stitches the entire time.

Trust me the MP3 audio files of the event, don't even come close to conveying the energy and excitement level. I read a report claiming this was less exciting than the LA Comic con... I totally disagree. The only things better about the LA Comic con was that the Q & A was longer and everybody got autographs.

Prior to this event, I wasn't all that convinced that Serenity would be a blockbuster movie, I knew it would be profitable for the studio, I knew the DVDs would do well, and I knew it would be well received, but I wasn't sure it would be a blockbuster, now I'm convinced it will be. I'm not saying it's going to break any opening weekend records. But based on the size and passion of it's response, I know it's going to do very well. (Perhaps breaking the record an April release).

As for the teaser they showed, I'm not even going to try to describe it in any detail, I'll just say that, as impossible as it sounds, I'm even MORE excited about the movie!

About my only personal disappointment was seeing the "DVD Production" team there. I had really hoped to be involved in the DVD. However, my company still wants revolutionize DVD-ROM and we want to use the Serenity DVD to do it... Universal, are you listening?
