All Things Watchmen

A couple of months back, I had the privilege of sitting on a panel with media scholar Henry Jenkins and Watchmen production designer Alex McDowell at MIT's third Futures of Entertainment conference. The conference was fantastic, and a wide range of videos from it can be viewed online now at http://techtv.mit.edu/collections/convergenceculture/videos

For interested parties, the video for the panel that I was on is available for viewing here:



McDowell addresses the legal battles between Fox & Warner Bros. over Watchmen a bit during the panel -- interesting to see now, in light of all that has happened since the event took place in late November.

For more recent Watchmen-related legal info, take a look at:
