Campaign: Hang with Kevin Smith at Comic-Con

Hometown: Chesterfield, VA

Donation: $10

EXPERIENCE DATE: July 17–July 21, 2019



According to Richard, “Having the opportunity to join in on the fun of the IMDboat and to be part of the IMDb interview team was fantastic. As a guest on the boat, we were able to enjoy the filming and interact with the folks that make it all happen. Having my interview published on the internet was exciting and a rewarding experience. Meeting Kevin Smith and other celebrities made this a truly memorable adventure. Visiting San Diego Comic-Con for the first time was awesome. The events were fun, the people were interesting and the exhibits were really cool. Kevin Smith was great. He was just as I imagined. In between filming, he stopped over to check if we were having fun. It felt great to be part of the show.”

My family had the opportunity to participate in something we had only dreamed of doing.





Meet Richard! He loves to travel, has a twin brother and two kids, he likes to DJ for fun, he has a career that prevents the emergencies from happening and he’s pretty good at music trivia! He was excited to meet Kevin Smith because, “I enjoy his reflections on pop culture. I believe him to be a regular guy and would enjoy the opportunity to just have a fun conversation and laugh about the Comic-Con events.”
