Site Name: Indie Film Spotlight
Categories: news, reviews, features, podcasts with emphasis on indie films
What is the main focus of your site?
IFS is Popcorn N Roses’ indie news and reviews site – this site focuses on indie movies only.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
We’d like to eventually turn PNR and its various sites into a full time gig, but for right now, we’re building our clientele, and enjoying sharing our views on the film world through our sites and podcasts. For IFS, we’ve been working with dozens of indie film makers out there helping to spread the word about their films. Quotes from our reviews have actually been used in several filmmakers press kits, and we’re even mentioned in the STILL GREEN trailer (http://stillgreenmovie.com).
Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
A little of both. Although we don’t allow comments on the site, we love to hear from our readers and listeners. We also have a social network site at http://popcornnroses.ning.com and our MySpace page at http://myspace.com/popcornnroses.
How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
IFS launched in February 2008, and we try to post updates on a regular basis, though sometimes news and such slows down; we also do IFS features on Subject:CINEMA.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
Speaking strictly Indie films – Wristcutters: A Love Story; Brick; Fierce People.
How did you hear about the LAMB?
Saw a link on the “Talking Moviezzz” blog.
