Where You WatchDo you enjoy watching films, talking about films, and speculating about films, soon to be released? If so, then please allow me to introduce you to my friend Staffan Ulmert and his amazing film-related website, 'Where You Watch'. Unlike my site, Staffan’s site is mainly focused on the film industry and full of cinematic goodness. Want to know more? Then please check this out…

1) Please tell us a little bit about yourself, Staffan, and what your role is in whereyouwatch.com.   I'm just a guy from Sweden who's trying to combine two of my interests together, creating website communities and my love for music and films. Having run a successful music community for a couple of years now, I wanted to try and make a film community that focused on upcoming titles only. Initially, I built the site all by myself, with my own layout and community functions. But because my coding skills are fairly subpar, I managed to step things up a bit by utilizing user-friendly website creating platforms, community focused scripts, and a ton of help from some really great people.

Currently, I act as the site admin, and when I can, I write a few articles too, even if English isn't my first language. 

Movie Pirates
2) What inspired you to create this movie related fan-site?   Even though there are so many great film blogs out there, I truly believe that if you love something it ultimately shows. 'Comic Book and Movie Reviews' passion for what they write about shows through their work, and I wanted to do just that with 'Where You Watch'.

3) Can you tell us what your site has to offer?   It does offer one thing which other movie blogs try to stay away from, movie piracy. By and large, I don't condone piracy because I think studios should get paid for their efforts, both mainstream and indie. But as a movie buff, it's difficult to completely ignore what’s going on behind the scenes. Take Oscar DVD screener season, for instance, when lots of advanced copies of movies get leaked and downloaded by the thousands! Where’s the forum where you're allowed to talk about the movie itself? Hence, I wanted 'Where You Watch' to be a safe haven, even if it does sound a bit pretentious.

Martin Scorsese
4) If you could get a celebrity – either living or dead – to promote your site, who would you choose and why?   Why not Martin Scorsese? With his recent rants about watching films at home and the quality of the Marvel Movies, I'd say he would be the oddest person to mention an obscure movie community like mine. It's an easy pick. 

5) During your time in this field, what is the one thing that has kept you in good stead?   It's such a cliche, but waiting, building up the hype, and getting super fan-boy excited for an upcoming release. That journey is always fantastic.

And on that note, I would like to thank my friend Staffan for telling us about his website, Where You Watch, before encouraging you to check it out, along with his Facebook and Twitter pages.
