Remember

Voice

Remember: You be you. Your voice is the only currency in this world that you’ll never have to earn or fret about losing. So spend it often.  Kevin Smith 

Born and raised in New Jersey and very proud of it; this fact can be seen in all of his movies. His first movie, Clerks. (1994), was filmed in the convenience store in which Smith worked. He was only allowed to shoot at night after the store closed. This movie won the highest award at the Sundance film festival and was brought to theaters by Miramax. The movie went over so well that Smith was able to make another movie,Mallrats (1995). This movie, as Kevin has said, was meant to be a “smart Porkys”. Although it didn’t do well at all in the box office, it has done more than well on video store shelves and is usually the favorite among many Smith fans.
