After writing on the web for three and a half years, it seems prudent to not just revise this introductory bit, but scrap it and start fresh. Frankly, nothing is the same today as it was when I first created this thing back in 2009.
The first thing you need to know about me: I love movies. Not just sitting and watching them, because anybody can do that, but analyzing them, discussing them, picking them apart, sussing out their better and worse merits. I’ve recently come to believe that it’s very, very hard to make a movie that’s genuinely irredeemable, and I can credit that thought with the amount of time I spend mulling films over- whether that’s in writing, where I’m basically talking to myself until I hit the “Post” button, or in person with other film writers and cineastes. Even the blandest and most forgettable movies have an element or two that’s worth writing home about (but not necessarily worth seeking out the movie in question for).
The second thing you need to know about me: I don’t write here anymore. Not really. Apart from the odd review here and there (my Side Effects review, posted in January, is the most recent thing I’ve published on the site), A Constant Visual Feast now just exists as a record of all the writing I’ve done for the web since I set out to become a film writer/journalist three years ago (and change). Currently, I split my time writing for Go, See, Talk! and Screen Rant; for the latter, I write movie news pieces, for the former, movie reviews and editorials, not to mention the occasional interview.
So if you want to take a look at my writing, you’re free to go through the archives here and see what my work used to look like- or you can head over to Go, See, Talk! and Screen Rant to see where I’m at today. It’s been a pretty crazy ride these last couple of years between being tapped to write for Go, See, Talk! and being given a recommendation to the folks at Screen Rant; here’s hoping that things keep getting better and better as time goes on.
