About

As a writer, the most intimidating thing to me was being rendered motionless over that blank page. Too focused on writing the most perfect thing; too worried about writing the worst. Aptly titled, ‘Blank Page Beatdown’, an incarnation of this site was originally created as an experiment for myself to write more; to overcome the blank page blues, get over that fear and beat it back to the darkness from whence it came.

In the 8 years since, Blank Page Beatdown has developed into a place for Film and Television criticism, discussions, editorials, opinions and has even spawned a film-centric Podcast. It’s become an extension of my passion with, and obsession of, movies. 

For the Writers out there: keep beating down that blank page.
