How Can You Be A Part Of The COMIC CON Documentary?

Published at: May 22, 2010, 3:29 p.m. CST by headgeek

Hey folks, Harry here - we just put out the following press release regarding how you folks can be a part of this first official Comic Con documentary. I've already been getting emails about it - but here's how you take part...
LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO LOVE COMIC-CON Are you headed to the 2010 Comic-Con International in San Diego? Do you die for diehard fandom? Do you pine over Chris Pine, other Captain Kirks, or have firsthand knowledge of who is the ultimate Bruce Wayne? Is your Lost Ark a long lost collectible, an original edition comic book, a need to be the first in line at a sneak peak of Green Lantern, or to understand the ultimate and undeniable power of Akira?! Are you the original inspiration for comic book guy? Is your collection the biggest? Is your costume the best? Is your dream to propose to your girlfriend and give her the one ring to rule them all? Are you an artist who is showing off your work? A vendor showing off your amazing collection? If you are any of these things, then we want to hear your story. Oscar®-nominated filmmaker Morgan Spurlock, producer Thomas Tull, comic book icon Stan Lee, writer/producer Joss Whedon, and film guru Harry Knowles have joined together to bring audiences the feature-length documentary COMIC-CON EPISODE FOUR: A FAN’S HOPE – a documentary celebration of all things con-tastic! We are looking to cast original, eccentric, funny, touching, and mildly obsessive people that will capture the excitement, enthusiasm, joy, and passion of comic book, anime, sci-fi, and fantasy lovers everywhere. If Comic-Con International will be the highlight of your year and you have a story to share about your passion, let us know. Join the fellowship, take part in this epic documentary, and write us at ComicConDoc@gmail.com. Include your name, phone number, a picture, and tell us your story.
Perhaps we'll be working together

    If you have claustrophobia in large places, you might have a problem. Luckily this year Twilight is before Comic Con so maybe this year people will get into Hall H.

    Who DOESN'T go to cons drunk?

    by calloway98

    Every DragonCon I have ever attended is a blur! ...not to mention every Star Wars Celebration I have been to (I got to see George Lucas in Indy, and I got to lay slain at Olivia Munn's feet in a bit for G-4 in Los Angeles), every Star Wars Weekends, Vulkon, and Creation-con I have ever been to. It's where geeks go to party. I call DragonCon "Mardi Gras for Geeks"!

    whats the deal with Olivia Munn in Iron Man 2?

    by Bouncy X

    first i hear she played a sorta important-ish role in the movie. then i hear she went back to film a new character as they scrapped her previous work. i finally see the movie today and she has a tiny cameo as a reporter? so anyone know what her original role was and why it was scrapped?

  • May 22, 2010, 8:42 p.m. CST

    Bouncy X go to io9.com they have a full

    by ominus

    article about this.search for Olivia Munn there.long story short: her original role had her in a lot of interaction with Tony which lead to a long,very sexy scene.Jon decided,since the film was pg13 that the scene was inappropriate,so they changed her original character to what she was irl: a reporter,and reshooted a new,smaller scene with her new character.thats all.

  • May 22, 2010, 8:45 p.m. CST

    Olivia Munn can't act and is a phony

    by DrPain

    and a bitch. Hope her career nosedives and she gets fat.

    once you see a few geeks the mystique goes away.

    This documentary would have been cool...

    by ErnestBorgNine

    had it been made a decade ago when San Diego Comicon was still Comicon. I'm sure someone else has posted the same thought, but it deserves repeating. Sorry Harry, but you're years and years late.

    You need a geek with Aspberger's syndrome

    by BumLove

    That's like more than half of them, I know, but you need one that has been clearly diagnosed by physicians as having Asberger's syndrome, and is trying to function in the world as a normal person, and find some joy, and his obsession with this geek stuff is his one shining light in his otherwise abysmal existence. It will give the documentary loads of free publicity from news outlets like CNN when they do health reports on diseases and stuff....a special report on Asberger's syndrome, by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, and then they show a clip from this documentary. Think about it.

  • May 23, 2010, 9:06 a.m. CST

    BumLove is correct.Get AsimovLives for that,he is perfect.

    sorry Asi,i couldnt resist. :P

    I still want a "AICNTalkBack: The Movie" Mr.Red

    by TheJudger

    Plot is so painfully simple. The film writes itself. Track down and find the worst of the worst here. For example Asimovslives/Fuck MichaelBay. Find out where they live and drop in on them unannounced with the Celebutante and or Directosan they shit dump the most on in the talkbacks. So that person can selfdefend and shit dump right back on em. Think about it. You're going to find some real Freaks. Me I'm handicapped. I can explain why I'm here 24-7 with out a lick of shame, but some of these guys. You know they are the real mccoy when it comes to that "creepy freekdom" <P> That is the movie I'm dying to see Mr. Knowles. Expose some of these Haters for who they really are.

  • May 23, 2010, 5:03 p.m. CST

    Man, some of you guys are dicks

    by YoyodynePropulsionSystems

    Anyway, I think this is a great idea. If there is any piece of investigative journalism that happens throughout, I'd be curious to know how many tons of nerd poo get deposited into the Convention Center bathrooms.

  • May 23, 2010, 6:17 p.m. CST

    First: Hire a bunch of strippers.

    by fiester

    Then dress them up in skimpy geeky costumes (Star Wars, video game characters, super heroes, etc.). Then set them all loose at one of these Comic-Cons and just film what happens.

    by thegreatwhatzit

    --just for a blip on the documentary's radar. This is GIRLS GONE WILD for fat fanboys. Anyone of significance will either ignore the "interviewer" or pledge "I'll get back to you" (and then plunge through the nearest Exit door).

    dont do it

    by brabon300

    if they wanted to really make a doc about the con, they would get in touch with people like evanier, who has been there since the beginning<p> this will just be another freak show expose of the geeks that attend the con<p>there should be a real doc made about the con...why it started, the people behind it and how it grew into the monstrosity that it is today....but spurlock aint gonna do that<p>and fuck stan lee

    by brabon300

    this is coming from a guy who loved trekkies, liked super size me, and thinks spurlock is talented<P> but no one is gonna be interested in a doc of the con of all cons, unless it goes heavy on making fun of geekdom<p>never mind that geek culture has conquered all, a large chunk of the movie will be devoted to finding the obsessive compulsives among us.<p> however, if it takes that part to sell the movie, and a good portion of it gives some honor to guys like krueger and dorf (true giants of the con universe), then maybe it will be worth it

    by MrCere

    The best comment so far was that this is years and years too late. Comic-Con has been all over pop culture already. "Comic Book: The Movie" anybody? With 135,000 people on hand finding weirdos to make fun of should be easy. Is Frank Drabont writing the script? Next you can do a documentary about Sundance The Film Festival! Exciting stuff.
