About Us

Thank you for your interest in RopeofSilicon.com. Stylish and impeccably designed, RopeofSilicon aims to give readers the ultimate experience in online movie news, previews and reviews with a touch of personality courtesy of its creator and designer Brad Brevet.

Brad started RopeofSilicon.com in 2003 as a hobby and a way to possibly create an online portfolio in an attempt to get work as a freelance writer. Suddenly he realized he was having a hell of a lot of fun spawning the site you see here today and the changing designs you see below. He is a member of the Broadcast Film Critics Association (see his BFCA profile here) and has been running RopeofSilicon.com as his full-time job since 2007 making regular trips to the Cannes and Toronto International Film Festivals since 2010.

RopeofSilicon.com now holds a database of over 5,000 movies as well as a complete list of winning histories from the Oscars, Golden Globe Awards and Screen Actors Guild Awards among several other available features and assets from the latest trailers, movie stills and up-to-date industry coverage and editorials.

DVD and Blu-ray Editor/Reviewer: I am looking for someone to maintain the DVD and Blu-ray database on the website as well as review new and upcoming Blu-rays beginning in 2015. All the qualifications for this unpaid internship as listed below are required for this position. Here are a few more details:

DUTIES

  • Add and maintain new DVD and Blu-ray releases
  • Write the "This Week On DVD & Blu-ray" column every Tuesday
  • Review assigned DVDs and Blu-rays
  • Discuss new DVDs and Blu-rays on the Tuesday episode of the podcast

Interested in writing for RopeofSilicon.com? Well, I'm looking for a few writers to begin contributing articles to the site on a daily basis, largely posting news items such as interesting casting stories, news items, trailers, etc. This is an unpaid position that should be considered an internship, though if things work out it could become something much bigger.

Still interested? Here are a few requirements:

  1. Basic HTML knowledge is required. This means being able to create links, bold text, italicize, embed YouTube videos, insert images, etc.
  2. An understanding of WordPress is required
  3. Limited image editing skills as necessary. This essentially means understanding what it means to include an image that is 640 pixels wide by 320 pixels high for an article.

What I'm mainly looking for are people excited about movies that want to write about and discuss them more with others. A unique, intelligent and entertaining writing style is what I'm looking for and if you think you have that, send some writing samples based on recent stories you've seen in the world of movies and send them to webmaster@ropeofsilicon.com.
