Former Hollywood Reporter, Moviefone Editor Heads to FilmCrave for the Write Stuff
FilmCrave.com is pleased to welcome Harley Lond, recently of the Hollywood Reporter and Moviefone as their newest guest blogger, responsible for the weekly DVD blog that appears on the site.
January 25, 2012 (Newswire.com) - FilmCrave.com -- the fastest growing film community destination on the Internet -- has added entertainment writer-editor Harley W. Lond to its staff. The arrival of Lond is just the latest step in FilmCrave's ongoing ramp up and improvement of its service, which recently included Facebook integration, language options and a more fully developed trailer experience. Lond is sure to play a big part in shaping the future of the website.
Lond, a former night editor and blogger for AOL Moviefone, where he wrote the weekly new DVD release blog, now brings his accomplished style to FilmCrave.com One thing is for certain, anyone looking for information on the new DVD releases in 2012 will need to look no further.
Besides his stint on Moviefone, Lond is also the webmaster of OnVideo.org, one of the longest-running home video sites on the web. Before Moviefone, Lond was the news editor at The Hollywood Reporter and, before that, the editor of Boxoffice Magazine. Lond brings that experience and more to FilmCrave.com, where he will write the weekly DVD blog.
There are literally thousands of sites Lond could have chosen to write for, but there was something about FilmCrave.com that caught his attention. "I like to shake things up and I like sites that do the same," Lond said. "FilmCrave has this grassroots appeal -- it's the community that drives the site, instead of someone from the top down."
FilmCrave.com recently expanded its own blog to allow select members the ability to contribute their own submissions. Lond brings his sense of professionalism and experience to crafting an informative and interesting blog that will keep people coming back for more.
Lond has been blogging since the term was coined. While his initial instincts where to be skeptical of the concept, he soon learned what made the idea so appealing. "It's such a wide-open field that gives everyone their own voice and a way to get that voice out into the world. Expressing oneself and getting oneself out there -- that's what it's about."
Lond has a great passion for blogging, but like other members of FilmCrave.com, he also shares a passion for film. A true Jack-of-all-trades, Lond enjoys the classics, such as "Casablanca" and "Citizen Kane," as well as such cult films as Alejandro Jodorowsky's "El Topo." He counts Stanley Kubrik, Quentin Tarantino, Takashi Miike and Chan-wook Park amongst his favorite directors and is currently on a thriller/drama kick, especially as it pertains to Asian cinema.
Lond represents a welcome addition to the FilmCrave.com community. His talent combined with his broad range of cinema makes him a perfect fit. Lond himself couldn't have put it better when he chose to describe his new role at FilmCrave.com with the classic line from "Casablanca," "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship."
