From the 615-area himself, Sean Atkins founded 615 Film. Sean has literally been watching movies all his life, starting with the original Jungle Book, well before he could walk or talk. When Sean isn’t at his government job, he’s usually critiquing movies or tv shows on here or at Fox Force Five News, and calling out entertainment sites for posting clickbait articles on Twitter. A graduate from a small state college in Tennessee called Austin Peay State University, Sean is living out his dream by reviewing movies while living right next to a park that hosts his favorite pastime, baseball.
