Director Blogs Popular With Movie Fans

Posted on June 20, 2005

The L.A. Times has an article about directors who are also blogging. Here are a few of the blogs mentioned in the article.

Fox Searchlight Pictures also created blogs for its Garden State and Club Dread films. They have a new blog now for the film, The Namesake directed by Mira Nair and starring Kal Penn. Actress Paris Hilton did a podcast for House of Wax. David Duchovney had a blog for his House of D film. And there are likely to be many more film and director blogs because they are appreciated by fans. The L.A. Times article explained why fans like director blogs:
Directors' blogs have subdivided into two distinct camps -- slickly produced video-driven production journals and technologically minimal Web diaries. But to hear it from Michael Regina, editor in chief of The One Ring Inc., a company that specializes in constructing movie fan sites -- including and, for the upcoming Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe - fans are simply interested in the minutiae of movie magic, in whatever format they're conveyed.
Update 4-27-15: The one downside to these blogs is they tend to have a short shelf-life. The sites that host them don't tend to archive them. Entire movie sites even tend to disappear a few years after a film has aired in theaters.
