About CSReview

Welcome to Camilla Stein Review, a place to have meaningful conversations about the art of cinematography and filmmaking, literature, and life at large. After a five year hiatus, this blog is coming back to life! Here’s what you’ll get:

Screenwriting 101: writing a compelling story and developing believable characters.

OP-eds on all and everything literary and in conjunction with current events. #amwriting

Just like in the old times, ‘BACKSTAGE’ and ‘CSReview Special’ will continue featuring interviews with film professionals and authors. CSReview also offers a platform for independent (indie) film and web series makers to promote their work.

If you would like me to run a promo for your film on CSReview, send me an email with press material. My genres of interest include science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, psychological thrillers, horror (no slashers and no zombie & vampire movies please!), history, comedy. I will not cover a film that contains erotic, propagandous, ultra violent, anti-semitic and racist content. I am also very careful about religious content, and reserve the right to refuse a publication based on my preferences. Adult content at personal discretion.

From time to time I will do book reviews. If you would like me to look at your book, please email me an inquiry including the synopsis of the book, and we’ll take it from there. I will only read manuscripts in PDF format submitted by email. My preference is for hard sci fi, crime novels, psychological thrillers, war novels, children’s books, non-fiction (psychology, autism, education), popular science. I will not review a book that contains erotic, propagandous, ultra violent, anti-semitic and racist content. Religious content is for my personal discretion.

* Disclaimer: When during book or film screening it is clear I cannot be involved due to the conflict with my principles as stated above, I will pass on the project but will not give a bad review or express a negative opinion about the project to a third party. In fact, here on CSReview you can count on a positive review that highlights hard work on the product.

Special attention to book covers and film posters – to avoid disappointment, please note that reviews will only be released if accompanied by high quality covers/posters. No full or partial nudity, no suggestive images. Occasionally I offer to make a beta book cover or film poster for a book or film in pre-production for social media use before the project’s official promotional material is released. If you need a beta poster/book cover to accompany your interview on CSReview, please mention it in your pitch.

Stay tuned!

Camilla Stein.
