What is the main focus of your site? I review recent releases primarily, tending to use more magazine-style/journalistic style writing to express what I thought is the particular movie’s strengths and weaknesses. I’m no film maker or producer, so I just offer an opinion from the POV of a lover of film. Plain and simple! I titled my blog ‘Digital Shortbread’ to evoke the different styles, tones, and general experiences we get through the digital creations that are film. Also, I’m a bit of an oddball. The title fit.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog? I would honestly love a job reviewing films for SLATE, Collider or a variety of online sites or papers. Since newspapers are seeming to be a thing of the past (at least in certain areas anyway) my main goal is to get published online. This is mainly why I try to write articles that are less conversational and more professional. The more followers I am getting does not bother me so much as I believe I am doing a film the justice by writing fair and balanced reviews.
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students? I love community, sharing and comparing my interpretations with others.
How long has this site been active for, and how frequently do you post updates to your site? (Note: sites must be active for at least three months for entry to the LAMB.) I began DSB in the summer of 2011 and haven’t looked back since. Well, I did once but then I quickly got over my own self-doubt. I try to post SOMETHING once a week, even if it is not a new review. I’ve since added new pages which discuss movies of past decades and such.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more). any of The Dark Knight movies, Moonrise Kingdom, Lock Stock & Two Smoking Barrels
Name a movie you hate!! Twilight
How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one? I believe I first stumbled across it via Fogs Movie Reviews
Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above. (optional) What’s your favorite movie-related television show? (Mine would have to be Entourage. I just downright love love LOVE that show, even if there is plenty of evidence supporting the notion that this is a Sex & the City for dudes….well-acted, engaging and informative, it is as good as one can expect a show based on Hollywood to be.)
