Fandom.com sent four writers from their Fan Contributor program, including Dani, to San Diego Comic-Con 2016. There, the writers were able to interview talent, attend panels and write about them for the website, and get a real taste of entertainment journalism. During that time, film crews followed Dani and the other contributors to document their experiences.
This mini-documentary is the result of Dani's time in San Diego.
