A changing of the guard at the Quickflix Blog

“Sunrise, sunset. Sunrise, sunset.” In the fast-moving world of the interweb, there is barely enough time to stop and smell the hyper-flowers or breathe in the pseudo-air, let alone keep up-to-date with the latest changes that happen on the ever-evolving medium. Some of those changes have occurred right here on the Quickflix Blog  – with a few more on the way – and we thought it was time to take a moment and give you the 411.

Firstly, we’re pleased to introduce you to a new blogger: Danielle Marsland. Based in Western Australia, Danielle edits the subcultural guide SixThousand and has written features for X-Press Magazine, Drum Media, KURV Magazine, ATTITUDE Magazine, Dazed Digital, The Pop Manifesto, Oyster Magazine, The Vine and The Blackmail. A fan of fine art and expert in the field of arthouse cinema, Danielle is a sharp writer and we couldn’t be happier to have her onboard. Say ‘hey’ over on Twitter: @danmarsland

Next, it is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Tara Judah, who has been part of the Quickflix team since last November. In the past six months, Tara has written some wonderful pieces for us, including ‘More than a movie: Five cinemas that changed my life’ and ‘Confessions of a “seat filler”: A night at the AFIs without so much as a name’. No, there was no coup d’état enacted by Danielle to dethrone Tara (that we know of). She will be busy at the iconic Astor Theatre in Melbourne, ensuring it continues its fantastic run of double features and screenings of cult classics. However, you’ll still be able to catch her talkin’ movies on 3RRR FM (102.7), as well as on Twitter: @midnightmovies. Please join me in sending Tara our ‘thanks’ for everything, and wishing her the best of luck!

Over the next few months, we’ll be covering the Sydney Film Festival, the Revelation Perth International Film Festival and the Melbourne International Film Festival, on top of all that other stuff we write about incessantly (Michael Fassbender, Lars von Trier movies featuring genital mutilation) so expect to be introduced to a couple more writers as our coverage of all things filmic, filmy and filmalicious increases!

Excelsior!

  1. It’s great that there are various bloggers employed by Quickflix. Everyone has favourite genres – please don’t forget that not all of us are arthouse fans. I’m not interested in arthouse and film festivals and respect that a lot of members do. Variety is the spice of life.

    • Thanks Rachel! The reason we bring on more writers is precisely SO we can cover more genres, and give our readers a nice spread of information.

      At the moment we try to find the right balance between talking about, say, a Transformers 3 or superhero pic, as well as lesser known Aussie films and indie/arthouse releases. I hope that you find plenty of interesting content relating to films you care about (and conversely, are introduced to a couple of great pictures you may not have heard of previously).

      Feedback is always welcomed! I hope you enjoy what we offer over the coming weeks and months!
