Beard-Os and Badasses to Take a Close Look at the Web of Online Movie News
The Internet has changed everything. Even just 20 years ago no one had access to the kind of technology and information that we do now. It's helped bring your favorite stars into your living room, and in terms of news there's no faster way to get it.
It's an interesting story to say the least, and to document it all comes a new documentary called Beard-Os and Badasses - the feature length debut from Geoff Todd and H. Perry Horton. Read on for details.
From the Press Release
This was a movement bigger than any one site, more significant than a name. BEARD-Os AND BADASSES: The Punks Who Took Film News Underground is a new documentary film project that has exploded onto Kickstarter. In 1995 when Patrick Sauriol flipped the switch on his film news website Corona Coming Attractions, it changed everything. No longer was film reporting and criticism in the exclusive hands of the few, privileged elite. For the first time fans and enthusiasts threw their keyboards in the ring, and a revolution was launched.
BEARD-Os AND BADASSES, the feature length debut from Geoff Todd and H. Perry Horton, will be an in-depth look at The Punks who took control of an out of control and outdated mechanism. There were false starts, missteps, and plenty of controversy, but a revolution was launched that changed the entire landscape of American film journalism and criticism. It is the goal of this film to document each step, but we need your help.
So how can you help? You can visit the official Beard-Os and Badasses Kickstarter campaign for starters.
We here at Dread Central are honored to be included in this documentary as are many of your favorite sites. If you wanna know the story of how this all turned into what it has, then NOW is your chance.
