My Story

What’s going on guys? Welcome to my first official blog post for The Cinebuff!

This blog is an offshoot of my Instagram account which is also titled “the_cinebuff.”

I’ve always had an interest in film, but it never manifested into much until the summer of 2014 which was when my love of cinema started to bloom. As I began my journey into film, I started to understand who I was and what my interests were. It was the summer of 2014 that brought me to the path I’m on now and it further solidified where my true passions lay.

I have quite a few aspirations with this blog. For one, I wish to refine my writing skills and further develop my own voice in film criticism. I also want to challenge myself and expand my tastes to films that are beyond my comfort zone; the only way to grow is to keep pushing beyond your limits. Finally, my wish is to possibly make this into a full-time career whether it be to write for a media company or to even create my own business from the ground up.

Here are a few things you can expect with The Cinebuff:

  • There will be film reviews posted on a weekly basis
  • I will discuss current events in the film world from time-to-time
  • A few posts will be opinion pieces related to the current state of films and film culture

I encourage reader interaction as it makes blogging more enjoyable. If you have a viewpoint that you agree or disagree with me on, feel free to make it known; this is an open space where all opinions are welcome.

I want this blog to not only inform readers on interesting films they need to watch, but I also want this blog to help me grow as a film critic. I still have so much to learn but as I continue to review films, my intent is to learn something new from each film that I watch.

I thank you all for taking this journey with me and I hope that we can all grow together!
