From Thursday 28 July 2016 Graffiti With Punctuation is going to a weekly publication format, with reviews, podcasts, opinion and giveaways dropping on one day a week. The move solidifies the Australian collective’s niche online, film and TV opinion outside of the 24 hour news cycle.
Speaking to himself this morning editor Blake Howard said “I’ve been wanting a change for Graffiti for some time. When you’re behind the wheel of a website’s administration you get itchy feet about once every six months to redecorate; like seasonal Spring cleaning I guess.”
Howard went on to say that “Graffiti was definitely not going to be closing its doors; but I think the longer that we’ve been online I’ve realised that unless you’re Dark Horizons [Australia’s home for online movie news], you need to have a foothold in L.A to do movie news right.”
Graffiti with Punctuation reviews films in the Australian and global release cycle; along with those festival films VOD treats that require attention. We’re also hearing that the move looks to create space for TV features of the once ‘#Powerful’ T.V. Graffiti spin-off site. Howard, though, would not reveal his hand to this reporter (himself).
“All our features like ‘Five Star Films’ and ‘The Debrief’ are still here and so is our crew despite being occupied with bringing beautiful children into the world, writing Australian TV, gallivanting across the globe like boss published authors, surviving major surgery, marketing for Australian distributors and running the tech for the largest English language online news publication in the known universe.”
The first ‘issue’ of this new publication schedule is set to feature reviews of Jason Bourne, Batman: The Killing Joke and Star Trek Beyond.
More to come.
