Let me tell you about my tumblr.
Stay for the Credits was created in December of 2008 while in the last year of college as an offshoot from my personal tumblr. It became my scrapbook for film school stories, film stills, quotes and interviews I liked from filmmakers, and production trivia. 
What I want people to take away from what I collect and post is that film is a huge collaborative effort from costume design to cinematography, set decorating to sound design. If you stay for the credits and see the roles people play, you’ll see the magnitude of how each crewperson is important to the filmmaking process.
A group, maybe an insanely large production crew or even a small group of friends, banding together to put their story on the screen for the world to see is a great thing.
So stay for the credits, read those names scrolling up the screen as fast as you can in your head; you’re doing them a great service by acknowledging them and their work.
I try to keep everything as organized as possible (hence all my posts having as many tags as I can imagine), because I still come back to them often. Here are some tags I use:




Concerning images:   #stills | #photography | #FX | #art | #production photo | #gif | #set design  
Concerning words: #quotes | #stories | #link | #interview 
| #writers | #books | #dialogue | #letters 
| #letters in the tumblr post (Tumblr Message Responses)
Concerning both: #credits |  #animation | #short film | #video | #scenes | #process
Concerning sound: #soundtracks | #sound | #sound design | #foley | #music | #scores 
Concerning people: #directors | #actors |  #women in film |  #editors | #composers
Concerning places: #cinemas | #travel | #studios
Film titles and proper names are used as tags as well (example:#Rushmore and #Bill Murray). There are probably more tags that I haven’t listed here. And there’s always the search engine on the home page.




Thank you so much for following, it means a lot to me.
Love,
