#SDCC: ComicMix Six: The must-see videos from San Diego Comic-Con
If you’re like us, you couldn’t possibly have seen everything going on at the San Diego Comic-Con– but luckily, enough people with cameras did see everything (almost) and are willing to share.Here are the must-see videos from last week:
Kevin Smith on Twilight fans: You may have heard it got a bit ugly at the Convention this year with all the Twilight girls and Twilight moms. Kevin Smith puts it all in perspective as only he can… (dear god no, of course it’s not safe for work, it’s Kevin Smith on a convention stage.)
Revealing the ending of Lost: The planning on a single panel, with extra trailers and comedy routines, was so convoluted that the New York Times did a write-up, revealing that the panel “complete with scripted comedy routines and 13
glossy original videos, took a dozen people four months to produce. The
budget for song rights, props and actor travel alone was $25,000.” If you’re a fan of the show, you’ll probably want to see the entire thing.
Jeffster! The cast and crew of Chuck made an entrance as only they could, with the power of Freddie Mercury.
Tyrese Gibson works the tables pushing Mayhem: Say what you will, but this man is pushing books harder right now than anybody else working in the industry. He might not be doing it well or efficiently, but man, he’s out there slugging.
The Masquerade: If you’ve never seen a San Diego Masquerade, you’re seeing the best the field has to offer– and I say this as a guy with costume awards from Worldcon. io9 put together a great documentary of this year’s masquerade highlights with a bit of behind the scenes action.
David Tennant & John Barrowman kissing: What more need be said? If you want to jump to the good stuff, it’s around 4:45 in.
What were your favorites?
Not caring to stand in line for an hour plus in most cases I sadly missed all of these events. To be honest the only one that I had really wanted to attend was the RiffTrax Live show. Btw, somebody might want to ask the Event staffers NOT to talk throughout some panels. There are audience members who want to hear what is going on.
