Introducing <i>Film versus Film</i> a new Philly-based web series

From the release:
Film versus Film
is an exciting new web series centering on the discussion of popular cinema.  The show’s panel is made up of filmmakers, professors, film critics and film scholars.  The panel’s discussions stem from tongue-in-cheek, pop culture-oriented “categories” like Best Use of a Pop Song in Film, Film Failure that Should Have Spawned a Great Franchise, Most Unpleasant Christmas Movie, and Hammiest Performance Ever by a Film Actor.

The series was the brainchild of Portland professor and filmmaker Dustin Morrow, who thought there might be an audience for the funny, passionate, good-natured arguments he was having at the pub with his fellow cinephiles over such film-obsessive questions as What’s the best film ever made starring an animal?, What’s the most uncomfortable nude scene on film?, and What films have actually been elevated by the performances of Keanu Reeves?

The series is shot in Philadelphia, and features, in addition to Morrow, Temple University professor and film scholar Chris Cagle, Temple U. media educator and documentarian David Cooper Moore, and Philadelphia Weekly journalist and film critic Matt Prigge.  Each Monday’s webisode tackles one question, and runs five to ten minutes.  The series can be seen on YouTube, Vimeo, and at filmversusfilm.tumblr.com.  The series can also be followed on Facebook and Twitter.

The debut episode of Film versus Film will be posted on Monday, December 12.
