It's time for an interview!
You're looking at the next big thing in Hollywood! Ladies and gentlemen, I give to you Kyle Watkins!
CUE THE APPLAUSE!
Host: Kyle, my boy! Welcome to the show that's inside of my head called- "Let's Talk." It's a pleasure to have you as tonight's special guest.
Kyle: Thank you Evan, it's a pleasure to be here.
So Kyle how did you join Moviepilot and could you tell the audience a little bit about yourself?
It's a telling story in my eyes, but first about me. My name is Kyle Watkins and I'm 16 years old. I've always loved movies, wanted to be a part of them too. I joined Moviepilot about two years ago... My parents actually introduced me into the website, I was so excited about the Star Wars news coming out and figuring out who the new Batman would be! I would read articles and see what other people thought about that specific subject. I craved to put articles out, I just didn't know how at the time. I started asking around, finally Kat Bacon had answered and told me to email her a rough draft of an article. She would finish it up from there with pictures and awesome features. I did that for about a month or two. Then I was able to do it on my own and now I write as much I can when I think of an idea.
That's incredible and I'll be the first to say this... You've improved so much as a writer. There's nothing but going up for you.
As writer's we have so many different things that we feed off to give us inspiration. What inspires you to continue writing?
Thank you so much.
I'm inspired by the continuous release of movies, there's always something and everything to write about. Also, the creativity and imagination that a lot of writers on Moviepilot have. Then there's you Evan, you have always stuck with me and gave me a compliment after compliment. You have inspired me to get better and helped me express my writing.
*Fighting back tears* Thank you, brother.
Enough of the sentimental talk. I'm to ALPHA for this nonsense!
You know me pretty well. I love being random! I have a task for you that's going to test your creative abilities as a writer. Are you ready my friend?
Creativity is everything in this in this industry. I'm ready my brother, give it to me in full!
A weasel named Larry, romantic comedy and Kiera Knightley. Give me a synopsis for this movie, go!
Gracie (Kiera Knightley) falls in love with Larry (voiced by Sir Patrick Stewart) in a bizarre and surprisingly weird way. Her best friend Andrea (Scarlett Johansson) is concerned, but Gracie won't hear it. Larry wants Gracie all to himself, the twist is he hates humans. Will Gracie allow her inner wild side free? Will Larry leave his PetSmart past behind? I give to you - "Her & her Weasel". Directed by the creator of Silver Linings Playbook, David O. Russell.
That's just weird. *laughing uncontrollably*
*Both of us continue to laugh uncontrollably*
I love it man! This is simply brilliant. Ok folks, we're going to take a quick commercial break and when we come back we'll discuss Kyle's top 5 favorite movies!
What are 5 of your favorite movies?
Let's see, Star Wars (all of them), Lord of the Rings trilogy, Lone Survivor, American Psycho and Braveheart.
Final question. Everybody is watching so make this count! Would you like to see anything different (or new) on Moviepilot?
They're watching us? Should I be concerned?
Of course not....
Moviepilot is a great community for up and coming people that are into the movie business. Unfortunately, our Facebook pages aren't the greatest, people often comment on that we click bait them. I have to agree with them on that part, but we also have "writers" who only care about getting seen and receiving cool gifts. I hope they break that mindset and start to love the craft of writing. While they should continue to enjoy this amazing opportunity! At the end of the day we need more people writing with passion and less click baiting.
Bravo! You brought up some great points. We can all agree that as writers we want views, but we don't write only for the sake of views. If that makes any sense? Because we want to share our passion and hard work with the world! Man, such a great answer, but it seems like we've come to an end.
I want to thank you again for being on the show. I hope you had a great time, I know I did.
Thank you so much Evan, I'm flattered.
There you have it ladies and gentlemen. Give a round of applause for Kyle Watkins!
