Slowly but surely, I’ve been picking up momentum over at the DOOMonFILM YouTube channel. Out of my last four videos, three in particular feel like I’m finding my voice… while my quick thought-share and starting five lineup video for Space Jam : A New Legacy was a bit of a throwaway vid, the other three hold important places in terms of my creative drive and ability.
My deep dive into Who Framed Roger Rabbit? is a chance to explain why that film stands as my all-time favorite film, not to mention one that unveils new treasures with each viewing experience. My analysis of Ratcatcher 2 from The Suicide Squad through the lens of the anti-villain not only stood as one of the pieces of analysis I am happiest with, but one of the quickest turnarounds in terms of film release to idea inception to production to release. My most recent drop, a setup of The 400 Blows as direct (albeit subtle) inspiration for the films Capernaum and Juice, will probably not make my channel blow up, but it is an idea that I have been sitting on for a while, with the discovery of Capernaum helping me to flesh out the idea fully.

On the eve of 2018, I knew that the year would be all about expanding outside of the current boundaries I’ve discovered in regards to my creative outlets. I have specific goals I would like to achieve as a filmmaker prior to 2019, but one thing I did not bank on was taking an active role in the criticism and analysis field. With the availability of streaming services (ie. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Vudu, and many more), I’d already toyed with the idea of starting a film blog, but in all honesty, I did not want to commit to the financial burden of seeing new releases. All of that changed, however, when I became a MoviePass member, and the final piece of the puzzle completed the picture. Cut to 3 months later, and I’ve blown past the 100 post milestone on the DOOMonFILM blog, with many more ideas in the works and infinitely more films to see. If you enjoy what I’ve done so far, stick around, because it will only get better with time.
