Douglas Cala, 25, is a self-proclaimed media sponge. He was raised by a music journalist father and a newsroom writer/editor mother. It was only natural for him to gravitate to all things media - photography, painting, videography and especially movie enthusiasm. Douglas got his start writing capsule reviews on the movie aggregate Rotten Tomatoes but found the need to bolster his text and make it more accessible.

Douglas tends to favor independent and foreign cinema from many different eras as well as very select blockbusters. In the first few years of his undergraduate studies at Purchase College, SUNY, Douglas became a Cinema Studies major where he excelled in history and analytical film classes. It was in these years that he developed his voice and unique perspective often getting into debates with his classmates.

Upon wanting to do more than just critique films, Douglas switched to a more production-oriented curriculum at Brooklyn College,CUNY while still maintaining his passions for writing, analyzing media, and photo & video production. Douglas actively freelances as a photographer and videographer with a specialty in live performance, portraits & headshots for models/actors/singers and fine art projects.
