Film and TV

Twitter Tuesday: Lights, camera, Twitter!

Back again with more great Twits to follow for your burgeoning Twitter feed. As always, follow us at @denverwestword, @cafewestword and @casciato.

@ColoradoFilm: What better place to start off the movie edition of Twitter Tuesday than the official Twitter feed of Colorado's Office of Film, Television and Media? Follow this stream and you'll get lots of retweets of film-related happenings in Colorado, film-related stories from around the Internet and vaguely film-related stuff that whatever poor office drone who mans the account finds funny -- all that plus the odd original tweet about film in Colorado!

@ElisabethRappe: A Denver-based film writer (that is, she writes about film) for the Cinematical and MTV Movies blogs. She also does a fun feature called Horror Movie Virgin for the Horror Squad blog, where she reviews classic horror movies she's never seen before. Her work is charming, funny and fresh, plus she looks really good dressed up as a pirate, which apparently happens fairly often. She's on her way to San Diego Comic Con shortly, so if you're looking for a local voice to follow that madness, she's a fine choice.

@HighwaymanMovie: It's a historical costume-drama revenge film, with a story set in 18th century England and it's filming here in Colorado starting this winter. Actually, the first scenes are set to shoot in the Governor's Mansion in September. Anyway, it will be interesting to see if they can make Colorado look like Merry Olde England, and if you've always wanted to be in a move, you should follow them and start badgering them constantly to use you. Which, if you'll excuse me, is what I am going to do now ...

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
