In the meantime while my leg is propped up, I'm going through some of the photos and decided to post some more J2 panel photos. After I return home I'll do more organized posting with photos that are more thoughtfully processed. These are just ones that catch my eye and don't need any real editing.
Cuteness. Jensen and his wife recently announced they are expecting their first child, a girl, in June. Jared and his wife's son is almost a year old and Misha and his wife have a 3ish year old son and a baby girl. A fan joked with the Js at lunch that they should have a Supernatural, the Next Generation series. Which triggered Jared and Jensen miming Jensen expecting his first child.

Jensen went on to say that the SPN Harlem Shake video was not really his idea. Brian Rose (Rosie) and another SPN camera operator were looking at Harlem Shake videos on a phone and Brian called over Jensen to see. Jensen had never heard of it. Brian told Jensen that they should totally do one of these. Jensen said sure! Why not? And Jensen then went to Kevin Parks and said Kevin should relax their schedule a bit on the following Monday because they were going to do this fun thing. Then it spread and turned into the video that was released last week and that now had over 4 million hits on Youtube.
Jensen went on to say that after they shot the video, they sent it down to LA to Phil Scriccia to see if they wanted any more editing. Phil said it was great and go for it. It was Jared's idea to double check with WB to see if they would be okay with it. Jared emailed Peter Roth, the Chief Exec of WB and said basically, "You know how you show the Eye of the Tiger bit to executive boards to show them how a fun, cast/crew made viral video can help build a successful show?" (paraphrased, of course.) We all went, "really?" I thought that was cool. Jensen said, yeah, Roth shows the video to boards to help convince them that a cast & crew that have fun are more creative and create things like this which connect them to the fans, which builds the fanbase, which creates a successful show.
Roth okayed with with legal and said go for it.
And now the SPN Vegas Con guests (Matt, Richard, Rob, etc.) did a Karaoke SPN Harlem Shake.
I was standing at the top of the stage stairs to the left as you look over the audience and took this photo of the audience during the filming.
During the J2 Panel, Jensen talked about how having a fun set made for a more creative, happy, and successful work environment. I think both Jensen & Jared separately said something similar in each of their meet & greets. I hope I can find a video of the moment during the J2 panel where Jensen talks about this, because it is one of the main reasons I follow this show so closely.
Creativity rules. I thought I had missed the auto sessions due to my bad knee. Vo's I came down without my auto signing stuff. Then I got creative. I downloaded a photo I took of Julie at Vancon 2009 and one I took of Ty just yesterday. Then I downloaded a doodle iPhone app. And had both of then sign with their fingertips. Worked out great!
I had Mark Sheppard's photo op from the last Vancon with me. So he signed that.
