about me

I’m Ben Parker, an aspiring 17 year-old film critic who lives on a small farm in Northern Vermont (the area in which the above picture was taken). It’s pretty nice up there, though admittedly, the weather can jump around a bit too much for my liking.

I used to publish my work on Cool Cat Studio (that name was my parents’ idea, not mine), then moved here because a) WordPress’s site designs fit my work far better than Weebly’s, and b) most of my work there isn’t very good, so I wanted to distance myself from it a little. Yeah, that website description on the front page is also pretty cringe, but as with said reviews, to remove it would just be lying to myself (not to mention all of my readers) about how I wrote back then.

Oh, and yes, the name “Boards of Cinema” is inspired by the ambient electronica group Boards of Canada, whose music I’ve loved for quite a while now. Yeah, I’m no fun at parties.
