Sean Evans, 25, born in Stoke On Trent. I dragged my way through school and spent most of my college days bunking off and using my dinner money to buy the latest film releases at my local HMV store. After a slew of boring jobs working to fulfil someone elses dream it was time to chase something that I was passionate about and something I could pour my heart and soul into. My own dream had just started and Back to the Movies was born.
I’m the CEO of Back To The Movies (www.bttm.co.uk) a site that took me from a boring 9-5 job into the whirlwind of self-employment. Back to the Movies is an independent site where I review films, catch up on all the latest film news, interview celebrities and more.
Alongside the website I run marketing and advertising for various companies specialising in movie marketing for both Independent and Studio film. I have worked with many top names in the industry and have had the pleasure of meeting and working with a few of my own personal idols. I work from home and have established the brand single handedly into the third most influential film blog in the UK, surrounded by websites that employ dozens of staff members. With my terrible spelling and grammar Back to the Movies was created with the aim to talk about movies the way you would talk to your friends about them and nothing more. No Critics, just fans.
About two months after becoming self-employed I was flown to Hollywood to work on my first movie. A film called Fear Clinic starring Robert Englund (Nightmare on Elm Street) and Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor.
Over 50 movies later I turned my Marketing work towards a gaming company and in January 2016 I was appointed as Chief Marketing Officer for a Vegas based Augmented Reality gaming company after garnering over 100 million views worldwide of their latest development.
My work has been featured in various online publications such as The Hollywood Reporter, The Wrap and The LA Times, and I’ve made apperances on the three time Emmy Award winning TV show Mark at the Movies which is based in California in addition to starring as a guest on Extra Butter a movie talk-show based in Sacremento. Back to the Movies and myself were also published in the Amazon Bestselling book The Million Dollar Blog, a book which showcases financially successful blogs.
A Million Dollar Blogger was setup with the idea to inspire, to educate and to share the privileges that I get to experience simply from writing about the things I love in the hope that it inspires others to achieve the same. If this terrible spelling, grammar confused, college skipping Stokie can be a million dollar blogger. Then so can you!
