Early in 2012, to commemorate the 20th year of the conference, Jason Scott was asked if he would be interested in filming a documentary about DEFCON, whose policies and attendees have traditionally rejected media scrutiny and access. He was interested. Working with his producer, Rachel Lovinger, and a crew of six, Jason filmed for most of 2012, including five 20-hour days in Las Vegas last year, and then spent another 9 months editing 278 hours of footage into what has become DEFCON: The Documentary. The finished film premiered at DEFCON XXI.
Jason and Rachel also gave this talk, which provided a look behind the scenes: discussing the planning and production process for this immense project, the ups and downs, and the learned lessons. [During the talk we showed clips and outtakes - those are not in this presentation].
