Freelance work has picked up after a horror start to the year and some of the projects are proving to be pretty exciting. One of those projects is now ready to launch: Cinematica, a weekly movie review podcast that I produce, edit and co-present with Simon Werry and Kailey Carruthers (from the Lighthouse Cinema chain).
We record the show weekly (Tuesday evenings) and review every NZ new release as well as interview special guests. Over time, with support from local distributors, we hope to offer competitions, prizes, giveaways, etc. and maybe even promote our own special screenings.
It’s early days, of course, and we need an audience and their feedback to take the show to the next level. We’d really appreciate it if you could give us an audition, better still subscribe to us via the iTunes Store and then rate and review the show. That’s how we get better positioning in the store and how we grow the audience even more.
