Question: in the 4 discs set you specifically specify "The Entire Scott/Don/Jay Panel" but in the other options you just write "Scott/Don/Jay". Does that mean that in the other options it's not the entire panel with them?

Also: what is a Date Disc & how is option of 4a discs different than option of 5 discs?

thanks

Yes, it would be the entire panel of Scott/Don/Jay in all options.

A data disc would likely be comprised of just about everything not shown on the normal DVD's. So, while on the normal DVD's you'd see most of the panels... you might miss out on some party footage, things that weren't as important as the main events, just extra stuff that wouldn't fit on normal DVD's for time and space reasons. Much of this footage could be compressed into smaller computer files and played on your home computer.

The difference in 4a and 5 discs is:

The 5 discs would be playable on any normal DVD player (NTSC, Region 1).

The 4 discs would be1 disc of highlights of weekend, 1 disc Highlights of Panels (but not full panels), 1 Entire Scott/Don/Jay panel, and 1 Data disc with pretty much all other material from the event.

In my opinion - No matter what choice you'll make you have to put all the con's panels in(complete,not edited and no highlights). A lot of people missed parts or all of those panels,when they waited in the autographs room.

Does the Scott panel include him singing Somewhere in the Night and his vamping?

What would be edited out of guest panels? or what constitutes a highlight? I agree with isz, I missed the beginning of every panel discussion, others would have missed the middle or the end, so it would be nice to see the entire panel discussions.

I'm assuming from the results of the surveys you will decide what to include in the DVD set and not provide each alternative. How much are you anticipating the donation to be for the DVD?

How long is the survey opened for and how long after that will a decision be made or the DVD made available? I can't wait to relive the memories.

I don't mind how many disks or the price. I missed some of the talks, and would totally love to see Scott singing again and his talk. The call with Dean was totally funny!

We have chosen a professional editor - he does stuff for Springsteen.

I'm sure we'll start on actual editing within a month at most. I believe we're aiming for late June to be done, but don't hold me to that!

Of course the singing will be in there! I'm fairly certain all the Scott panel stuff will be included.

Agreed. I missed three whole panels while standing in one autograph line.

The idea of the Data disc is that LeapBack2009 can cram as much as 12-14 hours of nonstop Convention coverage on there and leave NOTHING out. It would be higher quality than, say, YouTube, and you'd be able to watch it on your PC. It might also be viewable on certain DVD players, but generally speaking this disc would NOT play on your TV if you just have a separate DVD player.

This still leaves ~3 hours of Weekend Highlights, ~3 hours of highlights of the Panels, and one whole disc with just Scott/Jay/Don in DVD quality watchable on any DVD player.

Not marketing one idea of another, just explaining what the data disc is vs. the other discs. I see myself sitting down to watch a few hours of the convention on my TV, and the rest on my computer in a window while I'm working on other stuff/browsing Al's Place.

Sounds good to me.
I understand the dvd has to be region 1 - but please, any chance the data disc could be Mac compatible?

That's good to hear, being a regular Mac user myself.

I have a question, although perhaps it's already been asked and answered. I don't have time to look through every post:

How much will this DVD set cost? Are proceeds also going toward the Starlight Foundation as well?

EDIT: Never mind about the charity question... just checked the survey.
