The Society For Film – An Update
It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned by side-project, The Society For Film. This is a collaboration with Hong Kong based film reviewer, James Marsh, who is Asian Editor for Twitchfilm and programmes for Fantastic Fest and writes for Verite Magazine and Cathay Pacific’s inflight Discovery Magazine.
We’ve also now built up over a hundred full reviews on the site, with everything from recent blockbusters to art-house classics and a fair bit of world cinema.
One of my favourite features is the “We’ve Been Watching” section, where we catalogue and make a brief comment on every film we catch. Although I stand no chance of keeping up with James’ prodigious viewing habits, it’s still a good discipline for me to make a note and add a reflection to all the films I see.
Interest in The Society For Film has been building slowly and I’m very pleased with how we’ve been developing. We already have plans for some improvements and new features for later in the year.
Perhaps the biggest thrill for me, apart from working with a knowledgable film critic like James, is being part of a regular podcast. I love podcasting as a platform and it’s fun technical challenge to make it work week after week.
In fact, doing this has given me an appetite to push further into the world of podcasting.
