Support Frock Flicks with a small donation! During Snark Week and beyond, we’re grateful for your small, one-time contributions via PayPal or monthly pledges via Patreon to offset the costs of running this site. You can even buy our T-shirts and swag. Think of this like supporting public broadcasting, but you get more swearing and no tax deductions!
Many of you can guess how much work goes into producing Frock Flicks, but others might be surprised! There’s just three of us — Trystan (our editor in chief), Kendra, and Sarah — who write all the content, handle all the website design and tech, record and edit the podcasts, post to social media, etc. Oh sure, we occasionally pull in outside help, but 99.9% of it is all us, all the time.
The good news is that while we don’t make any money at this (and rely on your support to fund things like webhosting and podcasting equipment), we have a really good time. The three of us use a secret Facebook group to keep ourselves organized, and while no, you can’t join, I thought I’d let you in on some of the fun behind-the-scenes stuff that goes on at Frock Flicks headquarters.
So without further ado, in addition to lots of boring stuff, here’s what we do behind the scenes:
Inspire/Bug Each Other to Write Content (aka Continue the Snark)
Snark Week posts can be months or years in the making… The image is from The Libertine, by the way.
And when it just seems right, we kick titles to each other to review!
We also post notes to ourselves, so we don’t forget.
Sometimes we ask each other to fall on particular grenades… Kendra took this one, here’s the result.
Sarah continues to evade my requests. Harumph.
We know our readers are scatalogical…
When the snark flows…
…you just can’t stop it!
Confuse Each Other
Put down the smelling salts! We meant the recent French movie about Henri IV! Which, by the way, I still feel is one of my better snarky reviews that y’all have refused to embrace. Harumph again. Nobody understands my genius.
How can we not, when someone in the world is searching for such vital info?
Shaking my head at the future of humanity.
(Occasionally) Mock Our Readers
See? (Some of us) care about you! Trystan doesn’t, though.
We do love you. But please to remember we don’t get paid for this, so pony up your support and quit your bitching.
I’m not telling which comment/post we were specifically referring to, but if you want to see a lot of misplaced indignity, read the comments on my snark of Pride & Prejudice & Pigs.
We love you guys, but seriously, SEARCH THE SITE before you suggest movies to review!
And Yes, Mock Each Other
Sarah was pumped!
Trystan resisted the siren call of Grease!
Pat Ourselves on the Back for Being Hilarious and/or Fabulous
Y’all really should become Patreon subscribers, because then you get bonus content, including podcasts JUST for you!
I loves me some HBC.
It’s sometimes painful being able to read posts ahead of when they’re published…
Six months later, we realized that we failed to get any documentation for you. We’re (kind of) sorry!
Sometimes y’all get butthurt. Our FAQ arose as a result.
Pat Our Readers on the Back for the Same
Really, this meme ALWAYS applies. Thanks Stephani!
Note! No assplay in soundcheck!
Sometimes we like to just relive the magic of a good podcast…
Here’s that gif, FYI. You’re welcome.
We did a panel at Silicon Valley Comic Con! It was very on-brand as you can see.
Someday we WILL have a “caption this” contest so y’all can win a t-shirt… (in the meantime, feel free to buy one!).
Madame Bovary might not have rocked Trystan’s world, but Ezra Miller sure did!
What a girl won’t do for her besties!
Someday. You have been warned.
Thanks to our readers for giving us a reason for all this hilarity! We love y’all (even when we bitch about you)!
