In the beginning…I decided to start a movie website of my own in January of 2008. It was a simplistic website but an informative one.
By 2009, things were going well: we had a Google Page Rank of 3 by this point but then we hit a major bump in the road, resulting in a near catastrophe. That experience and its result are written about below:
After that nightmare ended and some time passed, FilmBook upgraded to a newer, more professional looking website. New contributors starting submitting content and we were upgraded from a Google Page Rank of 3 to 4.
In 2011, we had our first custom website built for this URL.
Also in 2011, we were accepted into IMDb as a NewsDesk Partner.
In 2012-2013, FilmBook added two new writers, William Kryjak and Romney J. Baldwin, and endured one of the worst advertising fiascoes we have ever encountered. That experience and its result are written about below:
Between 2013-2014, we added six new writers (Sam Joseph, Michael Smith, Deyan Angelov, Shanee Edwards, Nick DeNitto, Drew Stelter) and we were admitted into five national and international film festivals and conventions for the first time:
In 2014-2015, FilmBook added more writers (Victor Stiff, Brian Fire, John Sammon, Tyler Morgan, Lindsay Bern, Thomas Jenkins, Thomas Fairfield, K. Andrew Turner, and Kat Smith) and introduced a new department, Podcast.
All of the Podcasts were accepted into iTunes (FilmBookCast, Arrow, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., Agent Carter, Constantine, The Flash, Film Review, Gotham, The Walking Dead), Stitcher, Player FM, Tune In, and in many other mp3 listening and subscribing venues.
We were admitted into the Sundance Film Festival for the first time:
