Going to advanced movie screenings and related events has been one of my favorite pastimes. Sometimes, these events include Q&As with cast and/or crew. Often, these Q&As can provide insights into creativity or the entertainment industry. When that is the case, I like to employ my film writing skills and share those insights with others.
So when I had the opportunity to attend screenings and Q&As for the final two films at the 2013 SXSW Film Festival, At Any Price and The East, I decided to do some freelance film writing. The Austin Chronicle published this article, in which I summarize the Q&As and identify shared themes across the creators’ intentions for both films.
I have always enjoyed watching movies. But I also studied them in school, read theory about them for leisure, and even dabbled in making a few. As a result, I possess all this “knowledge” bouncing around in my head about cinema. So I write about movies and other cinematic arts (e.g., webseries, television, and comic books). In lieu of criticism, I strive to write more analytical pieces that speak to how a particular cinematic piece works on a semiotic, aesthetic, or other philosophical level.
