Firefly"Serenity" Australian Screening - Q&A to be filmed as part of the Serenity DVD
Friday 9 September 2005, by Webmaster
In preparation for the shiny goodness that is the Q+A screenings of the BDM, here are some guidelines to let you know how things will run.
Joss will not be able to introduce the screenings due to his hectic publicity schedule. He sends his sincerest apologies and promises to be peak Whedonesque form to make up for his tardy arrival.
SERENITY has not released anywhere in the world, and we have strict guidelines about protecting films from DVD piracy, so security will continue to be tight on the night. That, coupled with the fact that Universal will be filming the entire Q&A to support the release of the DVD next year, means that all recording devices and cameras will have to be checked in prior to entering the cinema, and will be returned after the Q&A session.
We have allowed sufficient time for Joss to sign autographs at the end of the Q&A. In order to make this process as smooth as possible (and to fit in with his publicity commitments) we will provide A5 cards of the new SERENITY poster for signing. For logistical purposes, we have to restrict everyone to one autograph per person. For those that posted questions about this - this is all included in the price of the ticket.
We really hope that you guys will support UIP and Joss in our efforts to get ’Serenity’ out there to the public and understand that he’s under an immense amount of time pressure and media commitments. To this end should anything go awry with signings please be patient and understand that we will make every possible effort to ensure all who attend the screenings are catered to appropriately.
Many thanks for your patience and we look forward to seeing you all there on the night!
