I’m changing my format. Why? Not only do I rarely post on this site anymore, but aim to do something that isn’t film criticism with this life. While writing the reviews in the past was a way for me to feel like I was creative in a small way, since I had neither the resources nor the capital to make the films I want to make, the reviews should be an element of my creative life but not the lone element.
What will the new format be? I am shooting a short film in a month’s time. I want this blog to be a place where I can post random related thoughts about film (or art, or music, or whatever) as well as a production diary of the shooting of my forthcoming short and every other film I make. There will still be the occasional review, but those reviews will fold into a current project that I am working on.
The projects that will feature on this blog from now on will be:
- - short films (mine)
- - screenplays (mine)
- - feature films (mine)
- - anything else I can think of… (also mine)
Conversely, I will figure out a naming system as I go in case anyone actually reads this blog and wants to find out what I think about something.
Maybe, I will like this new format and will contribute often… maybe. I found that I was unable to make myself write about film in the form of a straight review anymore. Perhaps that will change, but in the meantime… Welcome to the new Stallion in pupa form.
