Michael brings up a good point.  I know that ESR values his privacy and we need to get his okay prior to filming.  I will reach out to him via email.  


in the event that I do not hear back from ESR regarding this issue, which is a possibility, I suggest that you bring your equipment and we simple ask his permission the night of the event.  Unless you think that is too forward.

I've got no problem/issue(s) with it being filmed - or I presume
video taped or the like.

Should confirm it's okay with our speaker - Andrew - do you want to ensure
we cover that?

Licensing?  Whomever records it can likely release it under whatever
license(s) they want ... the more generally free in terms of freedom,
(and also cost) the less likely to generally trigger grumblings and such.
