Calling All Writers…and Stuff

A Scene From Ghost World For No Reason

Do you like film? Do you obsessively watch television shows and want to discuss them with your friends at length? Are you a webseries junkie? Do you like comic books and do you derive excessive pleasure from deconstructing them? If you answered yes to any of these questions (or if you wish to point out how I forgot to mention music) we want you to write for us!

Technicolor Commentary is in search of more writers to fill out the ranks. We’re interested in people with a varied and unique perspective along all media types and who want to generate discussion. If you feel up to the challenge, fire off an email to tccommentary@gmail.com with the following info:

– A brief bit about yourself
– Where you can be found online
– Your area of interest (film, television, music, comics, webseries, etc.)
– A writing sample

The perks? Your name will be featured on every post you write, with a link back to your blog or any site of your choosing. You will also earn my undying appreciation, which might one day be useful. And since we’re a relatively young blog, you’ll able to get in on the ground floor. That HAS to count for something, right?

So what are you waiting for? Fire off an email and begin your journey with TCC…and…yeah. Stuff.

Going Retro: TCC Episode 1

Technicolor Commentary started as a podcast site, a place to go to download the latest episodes of our film commentary podcast. The gimmick was that you could sync the podcast up with the film and it would be as if you were actually listening to a commentary track for the film. CalamityEnsues, thegreatredhope and I would take a film each week and dissect it or just say whatever came to our minds at the given moment.

This is a look back at the episode tha

t started it all (technically, it isn’t, but I’ll be posting that “special episode” at a later time). We recorded commentary for ROBOCOP. If you’ve seen the film and would like to see what our whole deal was, sync it up and give it a listen. Of course, you don’t have to as it stands on it’s own as a podcast.

Enjoy!

The Pilot: That’s So Veerhoven

Welcome Back TCC

Is it hot in here or is it just my regeneration?

Let’s compare TCC to Doctor Who for just a moment here. Whenever the great Doctor dies, he goes through a regeneration and becomes a completely different actor. That’s pretty much what’s happening here. We’re transforming from a podcast/blog to a blog. What this means is that things are going to be changing throughout this week. The design will be completely different and the types of posts you’re going to see here will be changing as well. The biggest difference is that we’re no longer limited to film in our scope. Now, we’ll be writing on a variety of topics such as television, anime, and web video(i.e. Legend of Neil, The Guild, and future web series).

I hope you rejoin us in the coming days for a new and improved Technicolor Commentary! Allonsi!
