About Me:

I'm  one of the newer writers here at Cinescape/Mania.  I've been a freelance writer for the past six years and a filmmaker for about the same amount of time.  Being a huge scifi/horror fan you'd think I make those kinds of movies but I don't.  I actually make documentary films.  My first documentary feature however, is within the trappings of the genre because it is about fandom.  The film called Fans and Freaks: The culture of Comics and Conventions is about all of us.  It played better than I expected at festivals, has had one distribution deal and is in the process of getting a new one.  The film is available online to at www.captain-pixel.com


I tend to gravitate toward the edgier stuff in my genre films.  I'm more Devil's Rejects than Final Destination if you know what I mean.  I grew up a big fan of Italian horror, particularly the films of Dario Argento, and I still favor those films today.  I'm also a big fan of 70's horror with a particular interest in the different types of exploitation film. 


As for scifi, of course I love the Star Wars films and the Star Trek films, but I also enjoy some of the campier classics such as Ice Pirates and Krull (which is probably more of a hybrid between scifi and fantasy). 


For TV I like serialized series that have a long sotry arc.  I need that to bring me back each week.  So, as you would expect I am hooked on LOST and 24.  There are several of these kinds of series on TV now so I stay more busy now than I have in quite some time.
