COMMENT DU JOUR
Adapting "Guardians" -a screenwriting interview

I especially like that part about how boundaries can be a good thing. Knowing where the plot points have to hit always stops me from wandering aimlessly in my writing. Some may see those thing as cookie cutter but I've always found them inspiring.❞ -Daniel

Sharp Funny Obsessive Individual Voices Wanted

Look at this cute photo Glenn took, inspired by my "Ruby Sparks" note-taking post! It's his actual notes scribbled during Ruby Sparks (which he just reviewed)

"Funereal typewriter". "leggings". "Manic Pixie Dream Girl: The Movie" "5 enya candy"

5 Enya Candy??? hee

Which brings me to the next point. Do you like writing about the movies? As we move into the fall film season, The Film Experience is tidying up backstage and getting ready to put on its brand new show(s) i.e. the usual show with a few tweaks and new series, and thinking about Fresh Voices for special one-off articles, temporary short-term guest blogging or more regular contributions. Our Movie (and real life) Buddy Kurt has, as you probably know, been snatched up by Slant. And after two auteurist series ("Modern Maestros" and "Distant Relatives") Robert has retired from blogging. I already miss both of them!

The Film Experience could particularly use fine correspondents who are living in Major Metropolises outside of New York like Chicago, London, L.A., The Emerald City, Atlantis, Cloud City, Mt Olympus, Hong Kong ... you get the picture.

Would also welcome writers who are actual ladies since there are plenty of ladyboys in the house already. If you think your voice is a good match for The Film Experience, and your interested in doing something other than traditional reviews (that's the request I get most often but not a type of writing I need for the blog), send me an inquiry

I do like writing about the movies! I couldn't do it all the time like you do, but I have taken several film classes for my film minor and I remember for my first semester in college, I wrote a critical analysis of The Blind Side and my professor used it as an example in class and for future classes. I was very happy about that. But I also chose a movie that was really easy to criticize tehe. Then again, I am a pretty good writer, I think ... for another class I wrote an analytical interpretation of Virginia Woolf's Blue & Green and that paper also got used as an example for future classes. These are the things I cling onto when I feel lowly about myself ... which is quite frequently

Would you consider constant ovethinking/discussing movies and some random scribbling as proper potential? lol

Aren't there people from Cannes, Berlin, Venice, Toronto, etc who read this blog and love it? Nathaniel (and we) need you ;)

I'd volunteer to the job Nat but I think you're much better off with people that go to major festivals every year and semi-professional film critics/ film scholars than me :)
