Cinema exists in a world of its own. A reality somewhere between ours and a universe more exciting. I’m a sucker for the theatrical, and a lover of film as both an art form and a timewaster. I live to be a part of this more exciting world, and am passionate about the latest releases, the news, and the icons of the cinema screen. I’m an avid reader, writer, and amateur filmmaker, striving to be creative and insightful in everything I write. There’s a lot to see in the local film market, and I will do my best to turn on the spotlight for Creative Drinks.
