About

Hi there! My name is Isabel and I run a tiny YouTube channel affectionately titled "Be Kind Rewind." 

I started this channel because I have an absurd passion for film history and the women who make it special. In my videos, I try to understand Hollywood as an industry and a culture through the lens of the Academy Awards. I find the Oscars absolutely compelling not because I value idol worship, or love numbers games, or debating who is better than who. I love thinking about them because for better or worse they are the litmus test by which Hollywood measures subjective worth. We can learn so much about our culture, history, economy etc just from looking at one ceremony. 

YouTube has allowed me to connect with people who love what I love and has really made all my nerding out feel like it has a purpose. Genuinely nothing makes me happier than thinking I can contribute in some way to making someone excited about film. I want to keep doing this because I learn so much, keeping this history alive is important to me, and movies are great and we should all talk about them all the time always forever and ever. 

I'm starting this Patreon because I want to be a better creator. With the right tools, I can make better, more compelling essays that will make your experience as a viewer much more enjoyable (for example, I currently don't have a microphone! My iphone is doing the trick for now but a girl can dream). 

So what do YOU get out of this! Well, hopefully more/better quality essays. In addition, I research and write A LOT for these videos, so I'd be happy to share more of my thoughts, sources, and cutting room floor material here. 

Thank you so much for even hitting the link to get here. I truly hope you enjoy what I have to offer. Much more soon. 

Isabel
