I am a writer/podcaster for SceneNNerd.
I am a small town Alaskan girl still trying to navigate this big world.
My love for film/TV comes from my family. We would spend most nights watching various TV programs, or re-watching our favorite films. My favorite part always came afterwards, when we would discuss our shared experience. My father still doesn’t realize how many life lessons he taught me by translating various pieces of dialogue, or scenes. Yes, I can admit that in a sense, I was raised in front of the television.
In college I took a film noir class that completely changed my perspective on the medium. The same critical analysis skills that I use to take a part Shakespeare are applicable to scenes in film/TV. Ever since then I began to pay even more attention to the smaller details within each scene that are used to tell an overarching story. A good movie, or TV show tells a good story. A great film, or television series, tells a story filled with hidden references, themes, and meanings that a nerd like me can obsess about.
