Site Name: The Long Take: Uninterrupted Cinema
What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
The primary focus is reviews and articles on cinema. I write a review when I think I have more than typical things to say about a movie. Therefore the reviewed movies aren’t necessarily new.
Articles also can be about anything worth discussing; such as film festivals and other important events, film history and certain movements, theory, movie comparisons, various top-lists, internet phenomena, television shows etc.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
In all honesty, all I’m trying to achieve is to have a blog that people read, come back to read for more and discuss (maybe eventually contribute). I don’t have any monetary concerns.
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
In line with the previous answer, definitely an interactive community. It’s more fun to discuss and even argue than be the teacher.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I have published some articles in some magazines in the past, but I am fairly new to the blogging thing. I think I post updates once every week at least. The average number would be 2-3 posts per week.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Fight Club, The Truman Show.
How did you hear about the LAMB?
I saw a LAMB icon in the blog named Film for the Soul and just checked it out. So yes, those buttons work.
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
Who’s your favorite director of all time?
