My name is Ben Pearson. I graduated cum laude from the University of Florida in 2008 where I majored in Telecommunication Production and minored in Classical Studies (aka Greek and Roman mythology). I've worked in the entertainment industry for a couple of years now, running the gamut from an intern at the CW television affiliate in Jacksonville, Florida, to a post production assistant at a reality television company that operated out of Orlando. I recently moved to Los Angeles to find work in the film community.
I took a few film classes in college and had a "filmic awakening" - I learned to watch movies with a critical eye and to evaluate their meaning in a cultural and intellectual context instead of passively viewing them as I had done in years past. After those classes were over, I wanted to continue writing about movies - so I started this blog.
If you're new to the site, I encourage you to glance through the archives and read one of my reviews on a movie you've seen, and tell me your thoughts in the comment section. I'd love to discuss anything that I've reviewed in the past, or hear suggestions for requests for the future. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you'll come back soon.
