On his official website, filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me) put out a call for geeks to tell their story in his upcoming Comic-Con documentary, Comic-Con Episode Four: A Fan’s Hope. As we previously reported, Spurlock is directing with Joss Whedon, Stan Lee, Thomas Tull, and Harry Knowles on board to produce. The film will center on “seven different people from across America, and around the world, as they descend upon and the veritable Mecca of fandom and experience the rapture that is Comic-Con.”
I don’t want to say that this is a casting call for people to be in the documentary even though it looks likely. There is the possibility that Spurlock will include a person’s story, but they won’t be one of the seven people chronicled in their journey to this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. The only prerequisite appears to be that you need to be going to Comic-Con already. So, if you think you you’re the paragon of your fandom, then hit the jump for the details.
The 2010 San Diego Comic-Con will run from July 21-25.
Here’s the call out from Spurlock’s website:
Are you headed to 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.
