Whether you’re a fan of collecting unique action figures, comics or even of card games like Magic: The Gathering, the annual San Diego Comic-Con is more or less geek heaven. It’s a place where we all feel safe, like we can go and let out our fan pride without being laughed at or judged by people who flat out just don’t get it. And yes, sometimes a couple of fans can be a little too comfortable given the aroma on the floor from time to time.
But it’s Comic-Con, the Christmas in July that every fanboy and fangirl looks forward to attending every year. Documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock went to the famed convention a few years ago and finally realized what all the fuzz was about. About a year or two later he got a camera crew together and chronicled the lives of several Comic-Con attendees from the vendors to cosplay designers who make it their mission to be the absolute best in their own way for that one special weekend.
We got the wonderful opportunity to chat with not only director Morgan Spurlock but one of the main women in the documentary, the crazy talented designer Holly Conrad. Feel free to watch the amusing interview below and be sure to check out “Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope,” now out in limited theaters and Video on Demand, iTunes and Amazon.
