We’ve been teasing it for two weeks and now the next evolution of Fox Force Five News is here:
The question most of you are probably asking is: Why?
Well, a couple things.
Perhaps you have noticed over the past few weeks that Founder and former Editor-in-Chief of Fox Force Five News Keven Skinner has not written anything recently, and last month, he gave me the option to take the site and keep it going. Without hesitation, I wanted to keep this site going because I love what we’ve built here and the recognition we’ve received over the years. However, it was time for a fresh, new look. Some of you might remember that I tried launching 615 Film a few years ago. However, my previous day job got increasingly more difficult and prevented me from growing the brand. But now that I have more time on my hands and took over Fox Force Five News, it’s the perfect time to grow the name and this site into something even more special.
615 Film represents those who write for this site–me, Kevin, Michael, and now Cory Woodroof. We all live in the Nashville area and love writing about films on the side. It also represents a large portion of where our readership comes from. We are excited about the rebranding and redesign that is now 615 Film and it wouldn’t have been possible without the hard work of a few people.
First, and most importantly, thank you Keven Skinner for creating and building up what was Fox Force Five News and allowing me to keep the site going moving forward. We promise you’re in good hands.
A big thank you to both Boyd Reeder and Kristopher Martel, who helped with hosting and other things behind the scenes, along with some advice that saved me time, money, and numerous headaches.
Another thank you to Austin Cumberlander, who designed the logo for 615 Film, which I love because of its simplicity.
And finally, a big THANK YOU to all of you who have read every article we’ve ever published. We’re excited for the next evolution of this site and hope you’ll join us as we continue our journey by writing about film here.
If you have a moment, we have a couple of simple requests:
Follow us on Twitter (@615film) and subscribe to our email newsletter at the bottom of this post so you don’t miss the latest article (we promise we won’t spam your inbox).
Thank you everyone for joining us on this journey and to everyone new coming aboard.
As 615 Film takes flight today, what better way to start than with a review of Top Gun: Maverick.
