The Cinemasochist Blog

The Cinemasochist is a blog run by myself, Mitchell Cork, a London based 3D Animation and Game Design graduate. This blog will focus on the demonstration of my journalistic work; Reviews, Opinion Pieces, Top 10 Lists, Spotlights and more are examples of the kind of content you can find here. The areas which my work will cover will focus primarily on the Games and Film industry, but may at times cover other similar areas of importance. I intend to cultivate this blog by supporting it via a mix of written and video content, so that in time it is a prime showcase of my abilities as a professional in the journalistic field.

That’s it for now, and I hope this brief paragraph accurately surmises the purpose and intention for the Cinemasochist blog.
