Admin Post
As many of you know, the BSG Wrap Party video was leaked this weekend. The video - and images from the video - quickly spread. And since it was 'out there' I reposted links and images. Since then, I've been in contact with the photographer of the still images of the cast and crew used in the video. He politely asked me to remove all links from this site, which I have done. The video was never intended for public viewing, but something special for the cast and crew. I've explained no harm was ever meant in posting the video and caps, but I certainly understand where he is coming from. No one likes to see their work reposted without permission.

I'm posting this message now for two reasons. One, that perhaps others will either delete or at least lock their posts to stop the spread of the work. And, secondly, that, with some luck and Jamie's permission, we could see some new photos of him posted in the future.

I also have a tiny bit of information regarding Jamie's upcoming convention appearances. Jamie has definitely canceled his appearance at Dragon Con and has no current plans to attend. He is still scheduled for Fan Expo as of today, but, like DC a couple weeks ago, it is tenuous. My guess is that his appearance there depends on when he has to move.

Tahnks. For now, we have lock the post on leeadama_daily. Maybe you want to repost this on battlestar_blog, someone has posted a picspam of the video there.

I saw the post you are referring to. It was posted at roughly the same time I sent an email to one of the Admins. I'm not sure how they wish to handle the situation so I held back posting anything there. Maybe I'll try touching base with another Admin. I know they are all in different time zones. ;)

I was asked to delete any references to the video and images taken from it. I'm sure he would be appreciative if you did the same, but I can also understand the rational that the work is already 'out there' and you have taken measures to limit it's spread. Personally, I think the more we work to honor his wishes the more likely it is we may see some of his fantastic photos in the future with his permission.

We have just decided to remove the links and explain our members why. I hope they'll understand.

Sure, I can pass along your compliments. :) I can also direct him to this post. I know he took a look at the site last night and I believe again this morning.

Ah, thanks for the information. Despite how wonderful that video was I couldn't help but wonder if we were meant to be watching it.

Please send our apologies to the photographer and I'll be deleting the images from my journal and locking posts that reference it.

As for Fan Expo, I'm keeping a close eye on the website for any updates as to Jamie's scheduled appearance but as of now I'm not getting my hopes up. :(

I've just seen this user is aware of the troubles with the pictures, and decided even not to lock her entry (

Thanks. I actually saw their post earlier. I'm afraid there is not much more that can be done, but it's great to see fans such as yourself so supportive. :)

I had written up a recap of the video and put together much spec from many different people. I have made it friends only. Let me know I should delete it all together.

I don't think a recap at this point is much of an issue. But the friends lock is probably a good idea. Thanks.
