I read books just as I watch films – obsessively.
There are always hidden folds in any creative piece and books are no exception. In film they can be seen quite quickly: what does this angle mean? how is this woman being portrayed? what could this suggest regarding the current status of society? It’s these questions and more that keep me up at night researching online social forums about snippets in films that can trigger a ridiculous amount of theory and speculation. Some of this I have used in my various essays during university whilst studying media but, for the most part, I do it because I enjoy it. It’s a black hole from which I do not emerge for days at a time.
Though I am now beginning my Masters in film and screen cultures, I have not forgotten my love for books. I want to use my knowledge of film theory to target audiences, whether through social media, events or advertising our books. I look forward to helping in any way to give women a voice. A voice that is rarely heard through any medium.
