By Matt Neglia It’s amazing really. What started off as a modest film blog called NegsBestThing.com, has transformed over these past couple of months into NextBestPicture.com. It’s been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life to hear the positive feedback and criticism also, to make the site better. This may have been a rough year for us all in many different ways. Whether it be politically, socially, personally or even if you felt underwhelmed by the year in film itself, 2016 for me, will always stand out as the year that I created something that I’m proud of and will continue to keep running for as long as my life allows it.
Special thanks goes out to my parents, my friends, family and co-workers. Also special shout outs to JD Duran, Brendan Cassidy, Erik Anderson, Clayton Davis, Jason Michael, Lee Brady, DJ Valentine and of course my Next Best Picture family…Will, Kristen, Michael and Mike. Without all of your advice, collaboration, love and support, I would not be where I am today, in a position where in 2017 Next Best Picture will become an LLC and we take everything from film, to the awards season and more to the next level. And last but not least, thank you to all of you, the fans. Thank you for helping to spread the word of Next Best Picture over the course of this year by reading the reviews, listening to the podcasts, purcahsing from the store, posting on the forums, and following on social media. It’s been completely overwhelming and hopefully a simple thank you will suffice. With that said…
Happy New Year Everyone!
