Growing up in the middle of nowhere quite possibly fuelled my appetite for escapism through film. This is pretty much just a fancy way of saying; I was bored and watched everything we owned on VHS. It could also be that my love of film spawned from watching a young Leonardo DiCaprio waltz around the Titanic on the big screen at age five (dear parents, why did you let me watch that? Pretty sure Titanic is not pre-school appropriate). Regardless of when it started, my obsession with all things film followed me into adulthood, where I now know more about obscure movie trivia than I do about our nation’s economy. If this does not qualify me to write about films, then I don’t know what does. As a film contributor to Creative Drinks, I’ll be giving you the latest information on film events around Brisbane, as well as my take on the best and worst of the film industry.
