Who: Alan Zilberman
What: Film/theater critic for Brightest Young Things, a nightlife/culture blog.
When: September 2008 onward.
Where: Washington, DC.
Why: I love movies and theater, and think writing is fun.
How: My love for movies began when I was young and would pretend to be Sleeping Beauty‘s Prince Philip in my parents’ basement. Throughout college and graduate school, writing has always been a hobby. When Brightest Young Things had a call for contributors, I jumped at the opportunity. Since then, I’ve written reviews, covered festivals, and interviewed several Academy Award winners. And I don’t see myself stopping anytime soon.
