Credits, Bios and Other Ephemera

About Me

I grew up in a small town in Connecticut; I now live in Brooklyn. I spent ten years as a theatrical stage manager and literary manager – two roles that most people have never heard of – but now prefer this side of the biz.  When I’m not blogging here, I’m over on my other blog, Wadswords.

Credits and Thanks

Some reviews mention someone named Alex; this was a roommate, an aspiring screenwriter and another film buff who was not only tolerant of the Crash Course but all-out dug it, to the point that he once paused a Hitchcock film to give me a three-minute dissertation on “How Do You Know Whether Cinematography Is Good”.  He now lives in Los Angeles.

The current roommate, “Roommate Russ,” is similarly cinematically inclined and about 75% of my screenings of anything now come with our post-show discussions.

I owe a word of thanks to my local Buy Nothing Group; many people in my neighborhood have graciously given me DVDs for various films from the List.

Thanks also to Mr. Carl Caputo for helping me track down some of the harder-to-find films.  Members of the 1001 Movies group on Reddit have also helped.
