Earlier I asked Duncan Jones if recording of the SDCC 2015 Legendary Pictures was possible, or if at least the Warcraft movie teaser trailer would make it to the public some time after the event.
He responded within a few minutes around 3:20am (EDT) that Legendary could answer that for me. I contacted Legendary and surprisingly got a response within a few hours at 10am. Without quoting, recordings are strictly forbidden. I will do my best to get ahold of a transcript, so keep an eye on our social feeds for any updates on that.
I wouldn’t hold my breath finding any videos of the panel online, and if you are thinking of recording a bootleg video I really really recommend you to get off your horse of thinking. The SDCC staff will be watching the audience and you might get escorted out and miss the awesome panel. No one told me any of that. Just common sense. Just think for a moment. Not a single video came out of last year’s panel. That tells you there were snipers all around the panel.
On the other hand, please, don’t blame Duncan Jones for the no-recordings policy. This is beyond his ability. He is as excited and geeked out as we are. However, there are technicalities and copyright laws that prevent anyone from posting this stuff online. Comic Con is lucky to be able to have these exclusives for attendees.
If you put video of film previews from a cinema in YouTube, you know best… it will be takedown for copyright infringement. It’s the exact case with any content shown at SDCC. It saddens the geek in me, but it makes sense.
I have to admit I truly love Duncan Jones … err … in a very manly way. “Not that there is AnYtHiNg wrong with that.” He’s very down to earth and as geeky as you and me. Tell me you don’t love the image he tweeted.
