Why Nofilmschool Is No Longer a Film Blog Superpower
1. They steal content from more reputable writers and re-post it as "click bait"
2. Judging by the brief and easily agreeable copy it's easy to tell that the newer writers barely understand what they're writing about nor do the writers even watch some of the tutorials/case studies they post anymore.
3. Ryan Koo, Robert Hardy and Joe Marine don't write enough. And when they do it's half-assed. They are this blog, and they are dropping the ball.
4. Quality over quantity has been lost and the reputation of the blog is suffering as a result. The basic idea of "think before you speak" could really benefit some of the writers here.
5. Stop with the shitty headlines. EXAMPLE: "GoPro Footage of Fireworks Might be the Best Thing Ever" (seriously, the footage was dog shit) or "It's a Bird! It's a Plane! No, It's a Drone Filming a 4K Porn Called 'Drone Boning" (so....creative???)
Nofilmschool's identity crisis is so sad. It's a blatant display of the internet's current landscape in contrast to the informational creative paradise it used to be. It's great that people can still make money as bloggers and all but, when you don't practice what you write it comes through to the audience. I mean, shouldn't the goal of a blog be to provide original content that's going to keep both the advertisers and the readers coming back for your blog's point of view, instead of recycled nonsense that's just going to waset your audience's time.
Here are some other filmblogs that some of you might enjoy as a replacement:
Nofilmschool has had some great editorial moments in the past couple of years but, as of recently it's easy to see that they are on a strong downward spiral. I feel as a loyal reader that I need to let Nofilmschool know that every time I refresh your page and see another article I cringe and wish I could grab a time machine back to when Nofilmschool wrote original content and had pride in what they did and who they chose to write for them.
