Rules for flash photography?
« on: May 27, 2015, 03:18:45 PM »
What are the rules again concerning flash photography? First 5 minutes only, after that no flash or no photos at all after that? Something completely different?

Absolutely no videotaping of the panels as we will be producing a DVD after the convention. Anyone seen recording by the crew will be asked to stop. Anyone who keeps recording will be asked to surrender their camera until the panel is over.

You are of course very welcome to record the rest of your convention experience. In fact we will be looking for video clips to include on the Gatecon YouTube page after the con, so if you capture any funny moments do let us know.

And please stay in your seats so that everyone can see.  Also, we're going to need to think about selfie sticks.

I would think selfie sticks may have to stay out of the auditorium.  I can see that going badly in a number of ways.

I think selfie sticks should be banned worldwide. Along with vuvuzelas

I'm assuming no video taping... right?

Correct Pam thanks for mentioning it.

We will be producing a convention DVD therefore videotaping the panels is indeed profited. Anyone doing so will be asked to stop. On the odd occasion we have had to take charge of cameras from repeat offenders but hopefully that won't happen as its not a pleasant thing to do.

I'll add the video but to the top of the thead

There was an exception for the auction bit... is that still the case or is the auction also a 'no video' zone this time?

I'll think we still make an exception for that. In previous years we haven't had the cameras available during the evening events, but hopefully that will be different this time.
