Want to be in the new documentary on this year's San Diego Comic-Con?

Edit: Letter sent ;-) However, the rest is still up to date. 

You know I have a habit of being all "rawr' when it comes to people who don't believe geek girls exist.

You know I love San Diego Comic Con.

You know I think geeks in general are awesome, but often misunderstood.

But did you know there's a documentary in the works that combines all of the above and, if it's done right, may go a long way towards giving people a better understanding into the geekier side of life, ladies and con life.

Did you know they have a twitter account?

According to the website...

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 FANS 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.

Okay, so will I admit that I'm a little nervous that it may end up making some of us geeks look a little...odd? Yeah. But there are enough geek friendly folks involved here that I actually think it may be more help than hurt.

If nothing else, I'm going to write my email. Why not?

Heck, what do any of us have to lose?

::grin:: And before you say "my self respect", just try and remember you'll probably be wearing a mask or cape at the show and running through the halls like the rest of us, so how much self respect do you have anyway?

Yeah, I went there. ;p

Go on. ::push:: Show off your geek.

  2. Cool! I wish I was going to Comic-Con.

    You're right, with geek-friendly people on the team, I think it might be favorable to the image of Comic-Con fans. Maybe in the way that Big Bang Theory helps geeks; even the hopelessly uber-geeky guys in BBT are still sympathetic and endearing to a wide audience.

  3. I just gave you an award on my blog:

    Geek Girls Unite! blog award

    The "rule" to do a post on the award and pass it on is completely optional :) I just want you to know that I appreciate your geek girl blogging!
