My name is Hamilton Whitney, and I am the founder of FilmHamster. Back in 2010 I started an experimental blog where I wrote one hundred movie reviews over the course of the year – every movie, both new and old, that I watched in that year.
In 2011 I became an editor for one of the top Hunger Games fansites, MyHungerGames which has been a great experience as I write news and opinion articles about the franchise, with a focus on the film aspects. I was able to attend the Hunger Games premiere and got my first taste of Hollywood up close.
During 2012 I had the opportunity to write some movie reviews for MovieGallery, local site filmsforthewin, and do a guest post for NECA. For various reasons, continuing to write for those sites just didn’t work out and I decided what I really wanted to do was create a place where I could freely write film reviews and share my own opinions and ideas. FilmHamster was born and officially launched January of 2013. In June I was accepted into The Washington DC Area Film Critics Association.
I currently live with Mrs. Hamster and Little Hamster in the DC area, along with our cat, whose claws and teeth we spend a good amount of time avoiding.
