by Dylan · July 27, 2008 · Dead LAMBs · 1 Comment

Site Name: Deadpan
Categories: Reviews, Humor, General. Mainly reviews/essays.
Rating: PG, maybe PG-13

What is the main focus of your site (reviews, editorials, news, lists, etc.)?
I mainly want to focus on writing reviews and getting better at that. I also enjoy studying film, so I am planning a study of different directors and how their films can be tied together to show the same theory, theme or idea. I am going to attempt to do the same with certain genres, such as Sci-Fi,etc.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
My goals are to get better and better. If I could get enough readers to where I can do it as a day job that would be fine, but I am not planning on that at this time. My main focus is to have good reviews in print so when I try to get a job as a film critic I have a lot of practice and material.

Do you prefer an interactive ‘community’ for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers are the students?
I definitely prefer interactive. I want the reviews to be more a discussion. I can probably learn more from others than they can learn from me.

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
I have only been blogging for a few months, but I try to post at least once a week, but it some times can be a few times a week.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
The Graduate, Annie Hall, One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest.

How did you hear about the LAMB?
Did a Google search.

Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
Uh, not really sure what else can be asked. I just love love love movies. I love writing about them and watching them. It is really a passion of mine.
