MAy 2016: Horror Bloggers Guild New Members
As an attorney and software engineer, I admittedly have an atypical background for someone who owns a horror website. Found Footage Critic started as a weekend project that somehow evolved into what is amounting to a full time job
What do you hope to achieve with your blog?
All too often, found footage films are considered the punching bags of discontent for many critics, movie goers, and even filmmakers. I wanted to create a website and online community where found footage fans and filmmakers could embrace the genre. At the time, no such web presence existed, so I set out to build one. Today, Found Footage Critic is the world’s most complete database of pure found footage films.
What Blog Post are you most proud of?
I developed a concise definition of “found footage” based on an analysis of over 500 films in the genre in an attempt to indoctrinate a set of canons for the film industry. I’m pleased to say that these “rules of found footage” have received a great deal of positive feedback from directors around the world.
There is no one single article I am most proud of. I love writing.
