499 came about in October of 2015 when my wife, Callie, encouraged me to start writing down my thoughts for movies and posting reviews! I wanted to create a reliable source for movie critique and offer a professional, modern feel. I also wanted it be quick and accessible hence the limit of 499 words. After my first post one of my best friends, Blake Burrough, wanted to jump on the train and now we have a whole suite of writers and editors!
We would love to have more writers and if you are interested please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will provide you with an application.
