wadeavatarWade Sheeler is a Reality TV Producer & Director, Writer, Frustrated lover of film and obscure music. I still make mixed tapes if I like you enough. For the Moviola, I’ll be covering all things where Movies + Music intersect , as well as film milestone anniversaries (10th, 25th, 50th, etc.) and occasional review new releases on DVD. Follow Wade on Twitter at @wadesheeler.
baBrandie Ashe is a freelance writer and editor from Alabama. She is the co-founder of and head writer for the film blog True Classics, a site dedicated to the Golden Age of Hollywood film and animation. Brandie will never outgrow her love for cartoons, both old and new. Her love for Cary Grant is absolute and damn near legendary. If she were a character in the Harry Potter series, Brandie’s patronus would be Robert Osborne. Follow Brandie on Twitter at @trueclassics.
kyleavatarKyle Turner has had a love for the magic of film in his blood since he was five. Since then, he has created his own film blog, moviescene.wordpress.com, become a short filmmaker, composed a research essay for his high school on film noir, and written for VeryAware.com as news contributor and think piece enthusiast. He’ll be covering various aspects of cinema in essays, probably from the perspective of a pretentious teenager. You can follow Kyle on Twitter at @tylekurner.
meaghanavatarMeaghan Clohessy was once told by her father that she would watch five hours of some guy sleeping as an excuse to go the movies. After finding such a film at the Andy Warhol Museum in Pittsburgh, she agreed he was right. Currently a senior Chatham University, she has spent the last two years writing movie reviews for the school newspaper “The Communique.” This is Meaghan’s first time taking her reviews to an online audience. She’ll cover new releases, mainly horror and action/thriller.
DJing Elsa's WeddingBrandon Hall is a high school English and History teacher, freelance essayist, screenwriter, director, and audiophile living in Brooklyn, New York. He was, at one point, an Associate Producer on a direct-to-DVD Cuba Gooding Jr. film called Linewatch (about which the first commenter on IMDb suggests is better than Taken! Which, woohoo!); he was a writer for Slate, that one time; and not so long ago, he was the editor-in-chief of a now-defunct music site called AudioVole. You can also see the last short film he made, Delusions of Love: A Case Study in Jealousy and 19th Century Formal Wear, if you’re interested, here. He does not have Twitter, therefore you cannot follow him. Unless you find him. In which case you better be fast. Because he is.
