Tell Me About It
How many contributors do you have?
What is the main focus of your site?
Film criticism and film analysis. My blog also focuses on other storytelling mediums that take my interest, such as video games, comic books, music, novels, and more.
What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
On a personal level, I hope that my blog is able to help me gain a greater grasp on my screenwriting abilities, through my analysis of film. On a professional level it would be great to move in to a paid film criticism position or to gain more recognition for my own website, and spread the influence of it.
Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
I do try to encourage a community environment on my blog; comments are open, and I usually receive a fair number on a few of my posts. I also encourage conversation on websites where I share my work, such as Reddit, where many of my posts incite conversation about the films I am writing about.
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.)
My site has been active for around two years now, and I have been running it while attending my university course, so updating my site frequently while also attending my lectures has made me efficient at time management. Now that I have finished my university course, I have more free time on my hands, and thus a renewed desire to really give my site all of my attention.
Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
My all time favourite film has to be Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. It may not be my most watched film of all time, but it is the film that truly opened my eyes to what film can be, both on a visual and spiritual level. I would also have to consider the Brad Bird animated film ‘The Iron Giant’ as one of my top favourites. I had a VHS copy of this film as a child, and would spend days endlessly rewinding it. As I’ve grown older I’ve begun to appreciate its deeper complexities. Thirdly I may have to narrow it down to ‘Harold and Maude’ by Hal Ashby, one of the most life-affirming films I have ever seen.
Name a movie you hate.
How did hear about the LAMB? If it was a LAMB, do you recall which one?
Quora and Google.
Is there an article on your site you are particularly proud of that you would like the LAMB to promote?
Difficult to narrow it down, but I would have to say my article on the film Paddington 2 and where it stands amongst the many sequels of the film industry. The link to this article is attached
Currently my blog stands at around 37,000 all-time views.
