by Rachel · September 4, 2011 · New LAMB · No Comments

Site Name: Pretty Clever Films
Categories: Reviews, General, News, Editorials, Classic Film, (Other) Silent Film
Rating: PG-13

What is the main focus of your site?
Reviews and discussions of Hollywood and global movies. Most reviews focus on pre-1960 films with a special emphasis on the silent era. Also features news, interesting clips, and odd tidbits collected from the web with an eye toward highlighting other interesting classic movie bloggers.

What are your blogging goals, personally and/or professionally? In other words, what, if anything, are you trying to get out your blog?
I am a social media strategist and a writer who loves movies. It seemed like a natural fit to write about the movies I love and employ the same tools I use for my clients everyday. Ideally, I would like to eventually focus my watching and reviewing into a publishable body of work.

Do you prefer an interactive community for your blog or are you the teacher and your readers the students?
Being a social media strategist and consultant, I fall firmly in the interactive camp. For me, one of the best parts of watching movies is talking (or debating!) about them later.

How long have you been movie blogging for, and how frequent do you post updates to your site?
My site debuted on May 11. I make an effort to post at least once day, with a few misses here and there.

Name up to three of your favorite movies (and no more).
The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari
The Last Laugh

How did you hear about the LAMB?
I follow many many movie blogs, a large number of which are members of LAMB. I believe the first may have been Silent Volume.

Any additional comments, or give yourself an interview question that’s not listed above.
Which movie moment have you been waiting years to deploy in real life? I really really want to slap someone ala Sam Spade in the Maltese Falcon and tell him he’ll take it and he’ll like it.
