Welcome to the new and improved Sound On Sight.
Three years ago when we started our radio show, we never imagined that it would flourish into a film e-zine, much less attract a worldwide audience. I never expected to meet so many great people from around the world who would take interest in contributing their hard work to our little magazine. For about two years now I had a vision of how I wanted our site to look, but I could never find the right person to make it all happen. Fast forward to present day, and after several web programmers gave it a try (and all failed), I finally met two who were able to help me make my vision possible. So I just have to give a big special thanks to Tom Hartman for giving us the jump start we needed, and also a very special thanks to Ned Zimmerman for getting the job done, and successfully integrating the changes to our site. There is still a lot of changes to be made. Think of this as phase one. We should be adding the finishing touches in the next few weeks.
With the new design comes a new direction for Sound On Sight. As we look ahead, we have big plans to further champion those films we love. Hopefully most of our readers and listeners will be pleased with the new look. We tried our best to make it user friendly, and less cluttered than before, while finding ways to still spotlight the great articles and reviews from our team.
In the upcoming months we will be launching our new batch of video-casts from our Front Row Center series. We will also once again be heading to Hot Docs, TIFF, Fantasia, Festival Du Nouveau Cinema, BFI London Film Fest, Tribeca, FrightFest and even Cannes to name a few. Along with our radio show and new columnists, cinephiles are guaranteed to find something new every day.
