About The Reel Deel

First of all, let me tell you what I’m not. I AM NOT A CRITIC. Not at all. There’s folks who do serious study and are card-carrying members of professional organizations who are, in fact, “the real deal.”

My “Reel Deel” is just myself – an independent filmmaker and screenwriter – and my opinions on pop culture. Nothing more. Nothing less. So what, you may ask, qualifies me to post my thoughts on the internet as if they have some type of merit?

ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. However, I, like most folks, have been a fan of movies since I can remember; however, it wasn’t until 1992 that my interest in films – and the business behind them – really took off. Since then I’ve been following the industry, noting the brilliant ups – and disturbing lows, eventually graduating from the University of North Texas (go Mean Green!) with a degree in Radio, Television and Film in December 2000. I’ve spent the time since writing numerous screenplays – both features and shorts – and making a couple short films along with a music video. I’m in the process now of expanding my reach, with burgeoning interests in the arenas of graphic novels and web series. And, of course, The Reel Deel.

I’ve been told repeatedly that my writing was enjoyable and entertaining. Now it’s time to put it to the test. It’s my goal with this blog to bring you the latest news and unique reviews – all with a fresh perspective that, hopefully, will keep you coming back for more (and bringing some friends). Pop culture is something I dearly love – I’ve devoted my life to it – and I definitely have some thoughts on the topics of the day.

I’ll make you laugh. Might make you cry. I’ll undoubtedly piss you off. But most of all, I hope I make you THINK.

That’s it for now. Check out the rest of the blog. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy creating it.
