Just before the start of the “The Continued Viability of Epic Fantasy” panel at World Fantasy Convention 2010, I got the idea to ask the panelists if I could film the panel and put it on YouTube. It was thumbs up all around (though David B. Coe threatened in entirely good humor to sue my ___) and so I managed to film it even though the conditions for doing so weren’t ideal. All in all, the video still turned out fairly well, though. I was in the middle of the aisle, trying to get the five panelists on the screen without capturing too much of the attendees. I also didn’t have my tripod, so the angle was a bit low (the camera sat on a chair, propped up by a legal pad).

But hey, it worked out all right.

Left to Right: David Drake, John R. Fultz, Blake Charlton, David B. Coe, Freda Warrington. I had to upload the panel in four parts to fit within YouTube’s limits.

I’ll have more coverage from WFC 2010, including another video of Michael A. Stackpole interviewing Dennis L. McKiernan (here’s part one, two, and three of that). I also conducted audio interviews with Guy Gavriel Kay, Michael A Stackpole, Laura Resnick, Daryl Gregory, and Elizabeth C. Bunce, and those will be posted at AdventuresInSciFiPublishing. You can also find direct links to those interviews here on my site.

Enjoy the panel! It was a fun and lively one.

Thanks for these! I couldn’t go this year, so it’s nice to be able to attend vicariously in a way 🙂

Thanks for both filming and posting this panel, Moses. I missed it at the con and really enjoyed being able to catch it here. It was great to meet you, and I look forward to future events where our paths might cross.

What a great idea, and what a kind service you’ve done for those of us who couldn’t make it to the Con!

Thanks so much for putting these videos up. I had planned to go this year, but couldn’t make it, so it was great to still “sit in” on one of the panels.
