Welcome to Go,See,Talk! If you love movies as much as we do, then you’ll find yourself right at home here in our little corner of the web. Let me be the first to welcome you to our humble cineblogging community where we at G-S-T call out the highs and lows of the good and bad out there.
We have a passionate bunch of writers who offer unique opinions and are ready to praise, hype, critique, slam, and defend anything we find interesting enough to post. Not everyone on the roster is a certified critic, but all of us are film fans.
I’m the founder/editor of the site, so feel free to contact any me about anything at email@example.com. But for now, allow me to introduce the talent behind the scenes of Go,See,Talk!
Marc Ciafardini – Founder/Editor (Interviews, Trailers, Reviews, et al)
Born and raised on a slew of old-school classics like The Thing, Aliens, Total Recall, Risky Business, Animal House and Back to School, it’s safe to say Marc saw far too many PG-13 and R-Rated films before the age of 10. But one good thing did come of it all, it made him an avid film fan for life. Marc pursued a degree and career in Interior Design and Architecture, but his passion has always been movies. It eventually motivated him to found Go,See,Talk in 2009 and the rest, as they say, is Internet history.
Marc’s Top 10 Films:
Rocky, Casablanca, Gladiator, The Rocketeer, Predator, Big Trouble In Little China, Back to the Future, Lost In Translation, The Last Samurai, Howl’s Moving Castle.
Andrew Crump – Staff Writer (Reviews, Features)
Andrew has been writing on the web for two years since starting his own blog, A Constant Visual Feast. As much a fan of tent-pole mainstream releases as more under-the-radar titles, he’s enthusiastic about sharing his passion for cinema with his readers. Based out of Boston, Andrew went to college in Baltimore where he studied English and Communications at Goucher College.
Andrew’s Top 10 Films:
Leon, Ratatouille, Army of Darkness, Blazing Saddles, Brazil, Pan’s Labyrinth, F For Fake, Bicycle Thieves, 8&1/2, Oldboy.
Bill Graham – Contributing Writer (Reviews)
Movies are Bill’s jam. He’s obsessive about them, but he also has an odd mentality that if he watches a film once, that’s generally enough and he’s on to another film. Why re-watch something when there is far too much to watch that is a new experience? Maybe that’s why he never gets anything done around here…oh, and if you’re quick enough, you can see him in three scenes in the Morgan Spurlock documentary Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan’s Hope while working for Collider.com.
Bill’s Top 10 Films:
The Big Lebowski, Jaws, Pan’s Labyrinth, The Red Shoes, Wall-E, The Empire Strikes Back, Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World, Aliens, Casablanca, Up In The Air
Jessica Tomberlin – Contributing Writer (Off the Shelf, Top 10 Lists, Editorials, Reviews)
Jessica adores all things culture: literature, art, music, and of course, film. She finds inspiration for her own creative writing through her obsessive watching of (mostly indie) films, although she grew up loving Hollywood classics and musicals staring the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and Sandra Dee. At five-years-old she named her first dog Gidget, after the movie. She may or may not have a slightly, unhealthy devotion to Woody Allen, but we all have our vices. Jessica studied Journalism at the University of Missouri, and received her Master’s in Creative Writing from the University of North Texas.
Jessica’s Top 10 Films:
My Fair Lady, Funny Face, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, When Harry Met Sally, Almost Famous, Lost in Translation, The Breakfast Club, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, Annie Hall, Midnight in Paris
Federico Furzan – Contributing Writer
Conceived in a very small town in the outskirts of South America, Federico’s connection with the world was always through films (and Stephen King books). His dad’s obsession with Hitchcock helped, as well as his sister’s fascination with 80s culture and his mom’s insistence of “watch whatever you want“.
Early on, he dreams of writing about films. This started a blogging practice that took him through several stages, even though he’s a Systems Engineer, and a copywriter during the day. Weird, weird mix. Today, he’s working on launching Screentology, his brand for film reviews with some slight twists. He’s a Rotten Tomatoes Certified Critic, and a member of the Online Film Critics Society.
Federico’s Top 10 Films:
Psycho, The Exorcist, Silence of the Lambs, E.T., Close Encounters of the Third Kind, The Goonies, Halloween, Goodfellas, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Raiders of the Lost Ark.
Tim Caffin – Resident Video Editor
Tim lives in the sweet spot where technology and design converge. As Interactive Designer and Digital Editor, he has a skill set that includes ideation sketching, model-making, physical & digital prototyping, 3D modeling, and rendering, his responsibilities, both personally and professionally, span graphic design, video editing, motion graphics & animation, and web design.
Tim’s Top 10 Films:
Brick, Kin, Back to the Future, Ready Player One, Guardians of the Galaxy, Inception, Inglourious Basterds, Planet Terror, Hostiles, Jurassic Park
Grady May – Staff Writer (Reviews, Features) / Video Editor
Grady, to put it mildly, is obsessed with movies. He is interested in every aspect of the film making process; from soup to nuts. An aspiring screenwriter, avid movie collector and film editing hobbyist. Grady is a film fan through and through, and he loves movies more than Ralphie loves his Red Ryder BB Gun.
Grady’s Top 10 Films:
Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, With Honors, Finding Forrester, The Shawshank Redemption, Pan’s Labyrinth, Braveheart, The Matrix, The Dark Knight, The Da Vinci Code
